Roger & Nelson are two rats who are looking for their new forever home! They were found as strays, so we don't know much about their background, but they have been getting along great with each other while here and are very social with people as well. They seem to be a bit older, but don't let that fool you! They still have plenty of energy to climb up their cage walls, burrow under their blankets, and figure out treat-filled puzzle toys. Stop by to meet these friendly bucks today, and please call or visit the adoptions office with any questions!

About Capital Area Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

For 133 years, the Capital Area Humane Society has been sheltering homeless animals, fighting animal cruelty and neglect, and offering programs to address the needs of animals in our community. More than 92 percent of our funding is provided by donations and fees for services. We are not a government agency, and we do not receive general operating support from national organizations. The Capital Area Humane Society relies on the support of private donors and volunteers to make our work possible.

Since 1883 the Capital Area Humane Society has been dedicated to providing only the highest quality of care for everyone we serve, animals and people alike. We are a team of experts—skilled, caring and compassionate people dedicated to our mission of fighting animal cruelty, helping animals in need and advocating for their well-being.

Our Mission

To fight animal cruelty, help animals in need and advocate for their well-being.

Our Vision

Our Adoption Process...

You’ll meet an Adoption Counselor to go over applications and discuss the animal you’re considering. We work with you to ensure your family, home and new family member is a perfect fit.
2. We’ll review all the documents and permissions (support from other adults in home, landlord permission and home ownership verification).
3. If your adoption is approved, your new pet can go home with you the same day providing they have had their spay/neuter surgery. If they haven't had their surgery yet, we will let you know when their surgery is scheduled and you can usually pick them up the next day.
