Elmbrook Humane Society's adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our adoption program is appointment-based which means that appointments are required to view, meet, and/or adopt. Operating by appointment allows us to provide the best possible care for animals and service to you. If you would like to pursue the adoption of an animal in our care, the first step is to complete our adoption application. Adoption applications are processed within 24 hours (same day if received during office hours). Please visit our website at to complete our adoption application. Adoption applications can also be mailed to us or completed in person. 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. “The Right Start Seminar” offered by our organization is included with every dog adoption. To learn more about this seminar, please visit our website.

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Brookfield, WI.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

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.
