Driftless Humane Society Pet of the Week

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Well, snow is always a little more thrilling and beautiful during the holidays, but we knew it had to come at some point. In an instant, the world is enveloped in a glowing shroud of white. It’s always fun to watch the snow-loving dogs wading through the drifts and looking for creatures to pounce on their heads.

If you need to do something to get the family out of the house, come to the shelter and meet our animals. Dogs and cats love to see fresh faces! Also, be sure to check out the “Finding Home” art episode on our walls. If you would drop off a gallon of bleach for our January drive, we would be incredibly grateful!

After our “Pay It Forward” adoption sponsorship in December, we still have some animals in residence with no adoption fees. Donors’ generosity will stay with these animals until they find a place to call home. Meet these three wonderful fellows:

Ralph is a handsome polydactyl boy who came to us as a stray in very rough shape. He had an injured foot that has healed, and is ready to walk around in his own home. Ralph is almost 3 years old and his greatest love is food. Bring some treats into his kennel and he becomes a crazy man (in a good way). Ralph is friendly, enjoys the company of other cats, and has a bit of a swagger about him that’s hard not to love.

Pet of the week: Chestnut


Chestnut is an old gentleman at the age of 8 years. He is 10 pounds of Chihuahua sass. Chestnut may have had a rough life and is now confused about his new life at DHS. She needs time to trust your person before she can truly come out of her shell and be comfortable. A stable, comfortable home will be a wonderful change in his life. He would definitely make someone a cute lap dog!

Pet of the Week: Zig


Zag, Zip and Zap is the cutest litter. These babies are sweet and social with loads of cuteness to boot. Zap and Zip have made their way to wonderful homes and the follow-up messages we receive from adopters are full of love. Zag is the last of her litter, lovingly saying “pick me up” to everyone. She looks almost related to Ralph with the cute little black spots on her nose. Zag is 17 weeks old and so brave! Zag is alone in his kennel with a soft paw to get your attention. He enjoys another feline friend to play with or chase toy mice and carry catnip toys around.

If you need a personal fresh start and would like to volunteer your time and talents to DHS in 2024, come to our first volunteer event of the year on Monday, January 22nd at 6:15 pm Feline Friend and join at 6:45. An evening for a canine companion.
