About Our Shelter:

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.

Our Adoption Process:

Application must be completed. Homeownership verification or landlord/condo association approval is required. All animals in the home must be current on vaccinations. All household members must meet the animal or, if not possible, must confirm that they are in agreement with adding the animal to the household. For dogs, if there are any dogs currently living in the home, a supervised interaction with the prospective dog is required. Additional requirements may apply depending upon the individual animal. We do not do same-day adoptions.

Upon adoption, the adopter is required to sign a contract agreeing to provide the animal with the care and medical treatment he needs throughout his life. They also must agree to provide the animal with an indoor home and if at any point in the animals life the adopter is unable to keep the animal, the animal must be returned to the shelter.

Dogs over 6 months are $125 plus tax.
Dogs under 6 months are $150 plus tax.
Cats over 6 months are $80 plus tax.
Cats under 6 months are $95 plus tax.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
