Dunn County Humane Society has been serving the needs of homeless companion animals in Dunn County since 1993 

Pet of the Week!

Hello friends, my name is Scout. I arrived at DCHS as a timid stray in early October and am estimated to be a 5-year-old Chow Chow. When I first arrived, I was very cautious and unsure of my new surroundings. There are a lot of new people, new smells, new sounds and lots of other dogs in this shelter. It is a lot for a shy dog to take in.

I would tend to growl when I first arrived, but I have come to realize the people here are the shelter are nice and they give me food, love and tummy rubs. Oh, how I love a good tummy rub! My ideal home would have calm adults who will give me the love and attention I desire, while living in a rather quiet home with kids who understand my fears. I tend to think I’m the boss around other dogs, so I really need to be the only one in the house — and I don’t think I could trust myself around any small animals like cats or bunnies.

Read About Flash – Our Inspiration

Flash photoFlash is the reason Dunn County Humane Society was formed. The DCHS was formed in response to an act of cruelty which resulted in the death of Flash, a four-year-old Basset Hound.

The Society is committed to the prevention of animal suffering in his memory. It was chartered in December 1993 by the State of Wisconsin as a membership-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
