Pet of the Week!


Picture a doggy version of Piglet from Winnie the Pooh, and you are picturing me! My name is Janae and I was brought to DCHS as a stray in mid-December 2015. I am estimated to be a 1 year old coonhound mix. I may cower or try to run away from anything that scares me, but I have a gentle soul and a heart of gold. I don’t much care for the cold weather on these blustery winter days… I would much rather be curled up snoozing in a warm cozy home with my family. I am hoping to find a family that consists of adults who understand fearful dog behavior. Mature kids older than 12 year of age may be alright, but I prefer nice calm adults. Kids are too fast and loud for me to be truly comfortable around. I would love to find a home where I could have a doggy sibling, or maybe even a cat. My photos don’t do me justice, so please stop by and meet me in person if you think I might be just the girl to add to your family. 

Placement Recommendations:
Good with other dogs
No kids under 12 years of age
Likely okay with kids over 12 years of age
May be okay with a cat

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.
