empty shelter

SAUK COUNTY (WKOW) -- The Sauk County Humane Society had something to cheer about this weekend!

The shelter cleared out all the adoptable dogs on Sunday, finding them permanent homes.

In a Facebook post, they said they emptied the kennels while maintaining adoption criteria and without putting the dogs "on sale."

"It CAN be done and WE DID IT!!," said the post. "And not just did we do it, we did it under extremely adverse conditions. We have put stringent policies in place to protect our staff, our volunteers, the public, and the animals during the coronavirus pandemic."

Staff say they know the empty shelter won't stay that way for long, but they are celebrating the accomplishment during a difficult time.

There are still a few cats, bunnies and other animals looking for a home. Visits the SCHS website for more information.
