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.

Check out the Live Feed from the Community Cat Room on the Cat Adoption Page.


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 Mr. Mittens!


Looking for a laid-back companion with panache, Mr. Mittens is ready to supervise the household! He is a short-coated black-and-white tuxedo cat with bright gold eyes and white paws (hence, his name!). Another cautious greeter, Mr. Mittens is another guy who takes a few minutes to decide about new friends. This handsome guy is a young adult, which is HSBC-speak for somewhere between one and three years of age and is polite and happy around people of all ages.

Hi! Oscar of the Sesame Street Boys!

Can HSBC tell you how to get to Sesame Street? Possibly, but they have four kittens who can! The Sesame Street Boys have spent a bit of time at the shelter but are now ready to spread joy to new homes. All four of these three-month-old males are orange tabbies that have varying shades of hazel eyes. Bert, Ernie, Big Bird, and Oscar (pictured) can all be a bit shy on first greet, but soon warm up to new friends! Of the set, Oscar is a bit of bolder, and usually the first to say hello. Like all kittens, they love to explore and play and would do well with little human playmates.




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.
  • 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.
  • Our annual fundraiser Bark and Wine has been cancelled.  The raffle drawing will be held on April 4 at 7:30 pm as stated on the raffle tickets but it will be a Facebook Live Event!  The silent auction,  wine pull and gift card grab board that were planned will now be a part of the Siren Chamber of Commerce event - Taste of Siren - on May 2 (fingers crossed) where HSBC had already been designated as the featured non-profit for the event.
  • Additional measures may need to be taken and will be posted here and on the Humane Society of Burnett County Facebook page.

It must be Spring!
