The average cost to house one animal awaiting adoption in our shelter ranges between $150-$250. That cost consists of medications, veterinary fees, bathing and grooming, feeding, staffing, and general building operations. As is true for most animal shelters, we do not receive any local, state or federal funding to help with our operational costs. All of our services and programs are funded by charitable contributions and revenue from service fees. For this reason, it is important for our community to realize that maintaining the shelter and providing services requires county wide effort and support.

How to Help
Can Drive Donations

Donations of aluminum cans are accepted right at the shelter.  Simply drop off aluminum donations at your convenience and shelter staff will make sure it gets added to the collection.  The funds collected from our can drive adds up quickly and is a great way to help support our mission. The Animals Thank You!

Donate Supplies

The shelter is always in need of supplies. These items can be brought directly to the shelter or put in one of our donation barrels located at Thompson's County Market in Oconto

or Witt's Piggly Wiggly in Oconto Falls.


It costs $1000 a month on average to keep our building warm in the winter and cool in the summer so the animals can be comfortable. Please consider using a Wisconsin Public Service gift certificate to help us pay our utility bills; your generosity in this area would be most appreciated.
