The Humane Society of Burnett County, Inc.'s mission is to provide a safe haven for stray or unwanted animals, to foster the human-animal bond, to promote responsible pet ownership and to end pet overpopulation through spay/neuter.

Donations & Memberships

The Humane Society of Burnett County, Inc. helps hundreds of animals each year. Without your support, these animals wouldn't have a place to go.

HSBC accepts monetary donations, but there are several other ways to help out! Check out our donations tab to learn more.

Lost & Found

Losing a pet is scary and could happen to anyone.

If you've lost your pet, please contact the shelter directly to file a report and inquire about any strays we may have. Also, visit our Facebook page for the most up-to-date photos of animals that may have been brought to the shelter.


Find your new, furry family member at the HSBC! We provide adoptions for both cats and dogs. All interested adopters should fill out our pre-application and submit for review.


The Humane Society of Burnett County is always seeking volunteers to help us accomplish our mission.  There are quite a few volunteering opportunities available to fit your time and skill set. Orientation and training is provided at the shelter.

Featured Pets!

Hi! My name is Kit!

Kit is a two-year-old, eight-pound, black shorthaired beauty with gold eyes who came in with her kittens from out by A&H. Now the K-kids are ready for their own adventures, Kit is looking for a place to be a pampered pet. Kit takes a minute to assess new situations but is friendly and loving.

Hi! my name is Carmella!

And Carmella? In the words of the vet clinic, she is “sweetness overload” and a “prime biscuit kneader.” This loving one-year-old is a stunning tan tabby with long fur and light jade eyes. Staff can’t figure out how this stray got lost; she is definitely a people girl! And at nine-ish pounds, she is the perfect size to curl up with!

Coronavirus Update!

All of us at the Humane Society of Burnett County are taking the threat of the COVID 19  very seriously.  Fortunately, it does not appear that companion animals are impacted by the virus, but we are most concerned about our staff, volunteers and the public and want to do everything we can to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. To that end, the HSBC Board has taken the following measures effectively March 15, 2020:

  • The shelter will not be open to the public except by appointment only.  The goal is to limit the virus from entering the shelter and infecting our staff and others. Animal care must go on 7 days/week and it is essential we keep our staff healthy!
  • Animal Adoptions will continue.  We will be utilizing Facebook even more than usual to promote our furry friends. Now is a GREAT time to adopt! People are home and can really focus on the transition period for their new pet.  Adoption applications will not be handed out at the shelter.  Please apply on line or call 715-349-2368 to request a paper application be mailed to you. Once your application has been approved, a meet and greet appointment can be made. Please read about our adoption process during the Covid-19 pandemic on the Adoption Guidelines page.
  • Stray animal drop off and pick up will continue by appointment.  Burnett County Sheriff's Department will continue to assist with stray dog transport to the shelter if they are able.
  • All volunteers have been contacted and those who volunteer on a "drop in" basis have been asked to stay home until further notice. No new volunteers will be accepted until further notice as well.
  • Volunteers who have scheduled shifts and responsibilities are welcome to come as long as they feel safe leaving home to assist our staff with their routine animal care duties.
  • Staff has been instructed to stay home if sick and to seek medical attention and testing if COVID 19 is suspected.
  • Additional cleaning and sanitation duties have been identified and will be carried out per the protocol developed by Burnett County Public Health Department.
  • Watch Facebook for notices about virtual upcoming events 
  • Additional measures may need to be taken and will be posted here and on the Humane Society of Burnett County Facebook page.
  • The Fall 2020 edition of the Woof Report is ready and can be viewed by clicking here
