Our state-of-the-art shelter

VCHS has moved into the animal shelter, and construction is complete. It has been built on 2 acres of land owned by VCHS on Nelson Parkway in the Viroqua Industrial Park. The new building helps us:

  • Provide adequate space for Vernon County’s expected growth.
  • Safeguard dogs and cats under our care — many of them lost family pets — in a clean, comfortable, healthful environment.
  • Incorporate modern design advances that protect animals and encourage adoptions.
  • Save energy dollars and staffing costs through efficient design.

Design features include an entry with air locks; public reception area; visiting room for adoptions; dog adoption runs; cat adoption room; cat colony room; dog isolation; cat isolation; medical/intake room; food preparation area; laundry; garage; and night drop-off kennels.
