Breed Matching

Want to adopt but are looking for something specific? We know that while we always have wonderful animals waiting for their forever homes, we may not always have precisely what you're looking for the first time you visit. Making the right match is important to us, to you, and to our animals, which is why we offer our breed matching service to make the adoption process as easy and enjoyable as possible.

How does it work? By signing up for breed matching and paying a small service fee ($25), our staff will contact you when animals matching your criteria become available for adoption - giving you the first chance to meet and adopt them. This program is best suited to potential adopters looking for specific breeds or types of animals who have some flexibility regarding age and gender. In order to keep wait times as short as possible, spots are limited.

Want to learn more or sign-up? Call (608) 752-5622 or stop in to the shelter today.
