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.
Spayed female Lab-type mix puppy
6 months old, currently 22 lbs.
Sweet and spunky
Affectionate and playful
Approved for respectful children of all ages
I'm a sweet and spunky puppy who's a real firecracker! I have a happy and playful personality and love humans, dogs, and stuffed toys. I am very affectionate and love to be held and cuddled. I'm also quite vocal and enjoy "talking" to my human and doggy friends. Like all puppies I will benefit from attending classes, and I should be a quick learner because I'm intelligent and eager to please. I'm approved for respectful children of all ages and am best suited for an individual or family with plenty of time to raise and train an active pup!
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
Rats, Hamsters, Gerbils: $5
Finches & Canaries: $10
Guinea Pigs: $12
