CAN I STILL ADOPT IF I DON'T LIVE IN THE MILWAUKEE AREA?
Yes! However, you must be willing to travel to the Milwaukee area with all members of your household, including pets. We require all families to meet the dogs before adoption. The home check can be done virtually before you travel for the meet so that you can adopt the day of the meet if it's a good fit.

Our facility isn't always staffed. If you ring the doorbell, and no one answers, please leave donations inside the front door.
