FINALLY some good news: Dogs cleared and available for adoption!

We will be announcing dogs each day, as they are cleared by the University of Wisconsin. These dogs do not have distemper, are not carriers, and do not pose any threat to any other dogs.  

Let's help get them out of the shelter and into the loving homes they have been waiting for!  

PLUS! All adoptions during the month of November and December are sponsored by Tito's Handmade Vodka,  "The vodka for dog people." It doesn't get better than that.  They're even throwing in toys and bandanas to all adopted pups.

ADOPTIONS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY! TO MEET A PUP, YOU MUST HAVE AN APPONITMENT. Fill out an application and our adoption team will contact you to set up an appointment. Please be patient - everyone will receive a response. Thank you, thank you :) :) 

If you have any questions, please email our adoption department. 

**Puppies under 6 months do not qualify for the sponsored adoption fee.  Adoption fees will remain $150, which includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, and 1 year of free training**

Mr. Haney

The Mr. Haney that everyone at the shelter knows is a big - as in very big - teddy bear.  Most of the staff call him a “sweet baby.”

Mr. Haney is a loving, happy dog.  He likes to play with toys or run around the yard.  He adores people and is very dog friendly.  Mr. Haney might be an older guy, but he enjoys his walks and does pretty well on the leash.

There is no down side to Mr. Haney as he is practically perfect.  Surely you could use some big, happy dog love in your life, and Mr. Haney can fill that need.

Skyline & Fair Lady - ADOPTED!

This bonded pair is irresistable! Skyline and Fair Lady have become staff and volunteer favorites.

They rely on one another for support and canine affection. To fill out an application, click here! 


Rexy is a staff and volunteer favorite who all describe her as perfect - with a capital P.  They also call her a “love" and a "total sweetheart."  Rexy has a sweet personality that endears her to everyone.

Rexy, at the age of one, still has alot of puppy-like frivolity in her.  She enjoys activity of any kind and learns new tricks or commands easily.  Come to meet Rexy, and you’ll be greeted with enthusiastic tail wags because she loves people and she loves attention.  Weighing only 40 pounds, Rexy is a smaller dog who can live comfortably in any sized home. Apply here! 

Benny Hill - ADOPTED!

Hey there, Benny Hill here! I’m a totally chilled out kind of guy who loves to go for walks and then enjoys just hanging out on my cushy bed. It doesn’t take much to make me a happy boy but I do like to have a dog friend around.

Personally I think I would love a home where I can curl up with my humans and dog friend, maybe watch a football game or two and go for a nice walk. I’m housebroken when kept on a good schedule so take me out and we are good to go. If you are looking for the best dog here, just ask for Benny Hill! (I’m pretty humble too!)

Apply here. 


Ellie May - ADOPTED!

Ellie May currently lives in our Executive Director's office and has a big, comfy bed that she loves to nap on. This hound is sweet, sweet, sweet.  She loves everyone she meets and has a happy-go-lucky outlook on life. 

Although she is a big girl, she will try to climb into your lap and doesn't understand why she can't fit. 

She is a very special girl and is looking for a very special family to spoil her. Apply here. 



Cookie Lyon

Cookie Lyon is completely adorable with her big brown eyes and huge smile.  Cookie Lyon looks so much better now then when she and her canine friend first came into the shelter.  They were found roaming together in a park and were brought to Stray Rescue by a park ranger.   Both were skinny and nervous.  But lots of good food and love from the caregivers have made dramatic changes in Cookie Lyon and her friend.

Cookie Lyon has a very waggy tail and a sweet personality.  She is curious about and attentive to the staff.  She would love to bestow that smile on you every day! Apply here! 


Grey & Greer - ADOPTED!

Grey and Greer are best buddies and a bonded pair! They were rescued together and are waiting to be adopted together.

Meet Wildflower! She has been at the shelter for a long time and is ready for someone special to change her life.  

She looks forward to her walks, but after her walk and playtime will gladly sprawl across your lap and lay her head on your arm.  She had a respiratory infection when she was younger and as a result makes a funny noise when she gets excited or when she thinks she is being a very good girl and deserves a treat.  She gets along with people, young and old, but wants to be your only fur-love. 

She is extremely loving and just wants to hang out with you, whether it be a high energy activity or laying on the couch.  Apply to meet Wildflower here!
