Humane Society of Jefferson County

The HSJC is located in Jefferson, Wisconsin and is a small, privately run non-profit shelter that has been in operation since 1922. We recently celebrated our 90th year of caring for dogs, cats, birds and other small animals in need. Each year, close to 1,000 pets find sanctuary at our shelter. We put forth great effort to reunite owners with lost pets and to find good new homes for those who need a second chance. We do not impose a time limit on how long a healthy, adoptable animal may stay with us as they wait to be adopted.

Meet Julian

JULIAN: One year old, neutered male, Lab-type mix, very sweet but quite shy, needs time to feel secure with new people, must live with another dog, gentle and loving when he feels safe, approved for very gentle and respectful children of all ages. I'm a very sweet, 1 year old mixed breed boy with a medium energy level. I am affectionate but very shy, and I must go to a home where I'll have a doggy friend (because being with another dog helps me feel more confident). I am mellow and submissive and need a very gentle and patient adopter. Once I feel comfortable I love to play with stuffed toys and other dogs. I'm looking for a kind adopter who will give me lots of reassurance and allow me to settle into my new home at my own pace. I'm approved for extremely gentle and respectful kids of all ages who won't scare me by making lots of noise. (Please be aware that children should always be supervised when interacting with any dog.) I have a wonderful disposition and can be a great family dog if I live with a doggy friend and am given time to feel completely comfortable!   The online adoption listing websites require that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog's individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.

Adoption Process
We do not do same-day adoptions. In order for an application to be approved, all animals in the home must be up to date on routine vaccinations, we must receive approval from the landlord or be able to verify home ownership. We also require the consent of all adults in the home. Ideally, all members of a household will meet an animal before adoption, but in cases where that is not possible, verbal consent is acceptable. Once approved, when adopting a dog, we require that any other dogs in the household come to the shelter to do a supervised interaction with the adoptable dog. Adoption fees are as follows: Dogs under 6 months: $150 Dogs 6 months and over: $125 Cats under 6 months: $95 Cats 6 months and over: $80 Rabbits: $25 Ferrets: $55 Parakeets: $15 Rats, Hamsters, Gerbils: $5 Finches & Canaries: $10 Mice: $3 Cockatiels: $50 Guinea Pigs: $12 Chinchillas: $50 Pigs: $100

Look for other dogs for adoption!
