Elmbrook Humane Society's Adoption Process

When you visit the shelter and see a companion animal that you would like to adopt, we will ask you to fill out an application for adoption. Applications are completed and processed the same day. If you complete the application ahead of visiting, please open the application file, save to your computer, complete and save the application to your computer, and email the completed application file to Elmbrookhs@ebhs.org.
We ask that all family members meet the adoptable animal prior to the adoption being approved. If you are adopting a dog and have another dog in your household, we ask that you bring in your dog to meet their potential new companion.
We do check home ownership or seek landlord approval as part of the adoption process. Home ownership can usually be verified the same day and we attempt to verify landlord approval same day.
If you adopt a puppy (under 6 months old) from the shelter, we require you attend a 3-week puppy training class which includes 3 weeks of training with you and your new puppy. This class is held at the shelter and is run by a certified dog trainer. Dates will be shared with you at the time of adoption and your puppy will be registered for class. There is a $50 fee for this class that is added on to your adoption fee. ** You can take this class at another facility and send us a copy of your graduation certificate for a refund of your $50 fee!
We understand that due to location, timing constraints, or past experience working with another trainer or training club, you may prefer to take your puppy to a class elsewhere. At the time of adoption, we still require the $50 puppy class fee; however, if you choose to go elsewhere, we will refund that fee when you present a certificate from a professional trainer that you have completed a puppy or basic obedience class.

Our goal is always to choose life. We do not euthanize animals unless they are too dangerous to be made available for adoption or have serious behavior concerns that cannot safely or successfully be rehabilitated and adopted into a new home. If an animal is sick or injured and we can treat, we absolutely will. We do not euthanize animals because of space, age, breed, length of stay, or whom may have acute or chronic health conditions that can be treated prior to adoption or managed by a new family.
We have committed ourselves and our resources to save every animal possible. Our intake and adoption programs have been adapted to be engaging and friendly to animals and potential adopters. We have areas where we can treat animals with contagious diseases so that they have the time to recover without becoming a risk to our shelter animal population, staff, and visitors to our shelter. Our behavior and temperament assessment process gives adopters the best possible information when they are in to meet our animals. We work with adopters to help transition animals into new homes and help them overcome any adjustment issues they encounter. Our foster care program has expanded to help animals with behavior modification or medical needs to be worked with until they can be given the best possible chance for a successful adoption.
We work with several animal welfare groups to transfer in animals in need to allow as many animals as possible a second chance. In April 2015, we announced a joint collaboration with Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) to work together to become one of Wisconsin’s first No Kill communities. Specifically, we work together on the overwhelming cat population in Waukesha County. To read more about this partnership, click here. We also transfer in animals from other organizations as space allows to help as many animals as we are able to. We provide animal control services to several communities in Waukesha County and work to reunite animals with their owners, and if that cannot be done, to rehome stray animals that are not reclaimed as quickly as possible.
We work with owners from all over to accept as many surrenders as possible. We receive calls from all over the state – and beyond – from people that know the quality of life that our shelter animals enjoy – but unfortunately we are unable to accept all animals, as much as we wish we could.
We are a small shelter, with a dedicated staff, and a strong volunteer base. We are able to care for the animals that come through our doors each year by working hard and making the most of all of our resources. We need help from our community – by adopting our wonderful animals, spreading the word about the great shelter we have, giving time through volunteering, and through financial support that enables us to take in more animals that have no other possibility for a second chance.
