Our Pet List

Who We Are

The WCAHS was established in March 1994 by four women from Minong, Shell Lake, and Gordon who were motivated by a desire to help stray, abandoned and unwanted pets and who saw the need for changes in the animal control procedures in the area.

WCAHS is operated by a small staff, and many volunteers. The majority of time and monies are donated by concerned people who wish to help or pay for the feeding, care and medical needs of the animals.

Adopting a friend

Adoptors must fill out an application for adoption. All pets must be altered before adoption unless they are too young. If they are puppies or kittens, adoptor must agree to have the animal altered as soon as it becomes old enough.

Since our first responibility is to the the animals in our care, we request that you agree to the following:

  • I am acquiring a companion to love and enjoy. It is a privilege to have a pet
  • I have a responsibility to care for my pet during it's life expectancy.
  • I am not impulsively obtaining a pet. I have considered how it will change my lifestyle. I know my responsibility in regard to food, water, housing, medical care, training and expense. I will not abandon my pet.
  • If I cannot properly care for my pet, I will return it to The Washburn County Area Humane Society for placement.
  • I will act responsibly and in the best interest of my friend.
  • Dogs are $135 and cats are $95. An adoption form, aka Pre-Adopt, may be filled out online at http://www.wcahs.com.
