Humane Society of Burnett County, Inc.'s Services

Pet Identification

It is important that your pet has proper identification so you may be reunited if your pet should get lost. HSBC offers quality ID tags (by order only) and the engraving is guaranteed for life. HSBC also offers microchipping for $35 (includes registration).

Stray Animals

If you find a stray animal please contact the HSBC. We accept all stray dogs of Burnett County however we have limited space for cats. If you find a cat, please call during business hours to check on availability of space. If you find a stray dog outside of our operating hours, please contact the sheriff's department (715) 349-2121.

Redeeming Your Pet

All pets reclaimed from HSBC must have a CURRENT valid rabies vaccination certificate.

Our redemption fees are as follows:
Daily Boarding
Dog - $20/day
Cat - $10/day

If HSBC was required to pick up your dog, an additional $20 fee will be charged.
HSBC does not pick up cats.

Animal Surrender

HSBC asks that any family considering the surrender of an animal exhaust all other opportunities before contacting the shelter. Many pets who have only known home life do not do well in the shelter environment. If an animal is stressed, withdrawn, or depressed, it can take much longer to find a new home. Consider checking with family and friends first. Breed rescues are another great option, as many of these animals are cared for in home environments.

The care and adoption of strays remain our first priority. Surrenders will only be taken by appointment pending available space and adoptability requirements. All surrenders are at the discretion of the Shelter Manager or Shelter Director, and a surrender fee may apply.

Surrender Fees:
Dogs $50
Cat $25
