Our Lifesaving Mission
The Neenah Animal Shelter exists to humanely care for lost, surrendered, neglected, impounded and abandoned adoptable pets until suitable homes are found for them.
We strive to improve the quality and strength of the bond between people and their pets through education and example.

The Neenah Animal Shelter receives minimal city funding and is dependent on contributions from the community to cover its annual operating budget.

How To Help

Protect your pet. ShelterCare Pet Insurance Programs

Alleviate the financial stress associated with your pet’s unexpected medical expenses and generate funds for our shelter at the same time! Simply apply for a ShelterCare Pet Insurance Program by using the ShelterCare banner-link. Here’s how it works: ShelterCare Pet Insurance Programs cover you when your pet needs essential veterinary care from an illness or injury. Also, every time a completed application for a ShelterCare program is generated through our shelter’s website, we automatically receive a $25 donation to help cover common needs like blankets, litter and food. This donation is of no cost to you and provides us with essential funds. Make the right move and enroll today!

Why Should I Adopt?

Adopting an animal from the shelter gives an animal a second chance at a healthy, happy home. The Neenah Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization dedicated to finding safe and quality homes for all the animals that find their way into our shelter. Each animal is vet checked, vaccinated and temperament tested before being put up for adoption.

Adopting a Friend

Adoption Process:

THANK YOU for considering adopting one of our lovable pets! We know adding a new pet to your family is an important decision. We welcome you to visit our shelter where our staff can help you find the perfect pet. We take many things into consideration when making a decision about placing our pets in homes. Every situation is different, so please understand that we are trying to make the best match for both you and our furry friends. We know you want that, too! We can only adopt to those 18 years of age and older. Before the adoption takes place please bring your entire household to meet the potential new family pet. Before adopting a second dog, we'll work with you to arrange a meeting between your first dog and their new playmate. Ready to take the next step?
