The Wisconsin Humane Society is responsible for handling stray animals in Ozaukee County, Door County, and most of Brown and Racine Counties.
- In Milwaukee County, all stray animals must go to Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC), which is not affiliated with WHS.
- If you are outside of these areas or are unsure whom to call, contact the humane society nearest you or call your local non-emergency police line.
- If you've lost a pet, make sure you follow these important steps for finding your animal.
- All animals on this page were given a nickname to help them feel like part of the family while in our care.
- If you believe your pet is listed below, please contact the shelter at which they're currently located as soon as possible.
STRAY ANIMAL INTAKE DURING COVID-19 RESPONSE
- The Door County, Green Bay, Ozaukee, and Racine Campuses remain open for emergency surrenders and stray intake only. Stray animals found in Milwaukee County must go to MADACC, as always.
- In response to these unprecedented times, the National Animal Care & Control Association has advised that “healthy stray and community cats should stay in the community and should not be taken into the shelter for the time being.” Click here for more details.
