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

Pet of the Week!

My name is Romeo and I’m a 5 ½ year old Yorkshire Terrier mix. I was surrendered because my parents are getting a divorce and aren’t able to keep me. I had been with them since I was a puppy, so it was very scary for me to be brought to the shelter with so many strangers, weird smells and barking dogs. It took me a couple weeks to settle in and make friends with the staff, but I now realize most people are nice and just want to be friends with me. I would love to find a forever home with nice adults and maybe a teenager or 2. I may not mind living with another dog or cat, but I prefer to not live in a home with kids. Kids are just too loud and scary to a little guy like me. I’m used to sleeping on the couch; I enjoy Beggin’ Strips treats, I’m used to being groomed regularly (which is a necessity to keep my fur healthy & mat free!) and I have been known to bark at thunderstorms. Thunder is so gosh darn loud… someone has to bark back at it to put it in its place so it might as well be me!

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.
