Updated Statement Regarding COVID-19: Changes Effective March 26, 2020 in response to “Safer at Home” order.

Effective Thursday, March 26, 2020, HSSC will be closed for all services with the exception of surrender appointments and stray intake. We ask that people interested in surrendering their own animal to please hold off if non-emergent so our small facility can respond to emergency situations that arise in times of crisis like these. If it’s not at all possible for you to keep your animal, please call us at 920-458-2012 to schedule an appointment.

Unfortunately, this means that come this Thursday, March 26, we are unable to conduct services including adoptions, nail trims, and microchip implants until further notice. As the situation evolves and we have more information available, we will act accordingly. At this time, our CAAP food share program is still open for pick up, by appointment only. Please note that we cannot guarantee we will have food available as this program is run on donations and we will continue to run until we are unable to.

Since 1964, the Humane Society of Sheboygan County has been dedicated to its mission: prevent cruelty to animals, relieve suffering among animals, and extend humane education. We are Sheboygan County’s only open admissions shelter.

The Humane Society of Sheboygan County focuses on accessible spay and neuter programs in an effort to beat animal population at its core. Creative adoption efforts and dozens of programs provide support for overlooked animals and work to place homeless animals into loving families.

HSSC is also a community outreach organization, partnering with other nonprofits, that offer services to enhance lives in Sheboygan County.  Community generosity helps us fulfill our purpose to provide care for our shelter pets and supports our community outreach work.

About Us

“We just adopted our little kitty from you. We were treated so well. It is very clean and the animals are very clean and well taken care of. Good job!!!!! We love our new little girl!”

Nancy Voigt

“I think this place is great for finding a pet. The animals are needed for homes and need another chance, you can tell once you step in to see the animals, they are sad and lonely, the prices are pretty good, and the workers are phenomenal. They care about each and every animal, no matter how bad. Please if you are looking for a pet come here. Im so tired of seeing sad dogs and cats just sitting there. And when you get a pet you save a pet with the money you used, so more animals can be rescued and rehomed. Please consider it.”

Bianca Landry

“I found the love of my life here. He was but a pup and I almost said no. The staff was very patient with me and so happy when I took him. His name was Argus and he just passed April 6th 2018. I am always going to be looking here again to see if I can find another when I am ready. Thank you to this shelter for saving his life and I had the happiest 9 years with him.”

There is always something going on at the shelter! From kids camps to volunteer opportunities, our event calendar has all the details you’ll need to stay on top of what’s happening in our community.


Become A Volunteer

Volunteers are essential to everything we do! Shelter volunteers provide hands-on animal care such as grooming, exercising, kennel cleaning, general housekeeping, and socializing the animals.

Other volunteer opportunities include off-site adoption events, office work/data entry, fundraising events, humane education and pet visits to local schools or organizations, and committee work.
