Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Our dogs are housed in foster homes throughout the Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha area, where they are provided with the love, time, and energy they need to reach their full potential. Any dog in need of veterinary care receives that as well. Our dogs are all in good health, neutered/spayed, and are brought UTD on vaccinations. When time permits, our dogs are also housetrained and taught basic obedience commands.
All Compatible Canines are evaluated for temperament and personality. This helps us to place them in homes that are well suited to their needs and to the needs of their future owners. If you are looking for a specific type of dog and do not see it on our website, please email us. We work closely with other rescue groups and animal shelters and may be able to assist you in finding your next best friend.
2. Complete & return adoption application and liability release (available on our 'Forms' page).
3. A Compatible Canines representative will contact you, usually within 24 hours, to let you know if your application is approved and to answer any questions you may have.
4. Your contact information will be forwarded to the dog's foster home. The foster will then contact you to arrange a 'Meet and Greet' appointment.
5. If all goes well, you may take your new dog home right away, after completing your Adoption Agreement and paying the adoption fee. We only accept Cash or Check at this time.
***Please note, we DO NOT hold any dogs for any reason. Preference order is set up based on when we receive applications for the dogs. If you set up a "meet and greet" appointment but do not submit an application, there is still the possibility that the dog will be adopted before your appointment. If another qualified person comes in who is also interested in the dog, and can also give it a wonderful home, we will not delay in placing it with a loving owner. Thank you for your understanding.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
