Please note although staff is in the building twice a day for animal care, Adoptions and Owner Relinquishments are only available on Office Days. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

Driving Directions:

Our new shelter is located a half-mile north of downtown Viroqua, behind the fairgrounds and just a block north of the Wild West Days grounds. Go east from the intersection of U.S. Highway 14 and County Highway BB, and turn south on Nelson Parkway. The yellow shelter building is on the west side of the street. Look for the sign.
