If you just got a new dog, or are thinking about getting one, then this is the workshop for you. Join Mittsy Voiles and Alli Jerger from the Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic to learn what to expect in the first days, weeks and months, to get you and your dog off to a great start. Topics include socialization, exercise, nutrition, manners, potty training, and how to avoid common mistakes that may trigger fearful/defensive behavior.

The workshop will be held in the shelter's Community Education Room on Monday, March 26th, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

This event is for humans only, so please leave your pets at home.

The workshop is free, but monetary donations or items from the shelter's wish list are greatly appreciated!

We'd love to know how many people are planning to attend so we can set up the room accordingly. Please contact the shelter by phone at 920-674-2048 or hit "going" on the Facebook event to let us know you're planning on attending!

This workshop is sponsored by Pet Partners, a partnership between the Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic and the Humane Society of Jefferson County.

The Badger Veterinary Hospital will join the HSJC in sponsoring this year's Spring Rabies Clinic. The clinic will be held on Saturday, March 24th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the Jefferson County Fair Park. Rabies vaccinations will cost $15.00 each, which can be paid by check or cash.

All rabies vaccinations will be good for one year unless a rabies certificate is provided as proof of a prior rabies vaccination, in which case a three-year vaccine may be given. Rabies tags cannot be accepted as proof of a current rabies vaccination.

All cats must be contained in carriers and all dogs must be leashed with a 4'-6' non-retractable leash.

Need a little help getting your pooch in sync with your step? Dogs sit, lie down and run to each other as part of their natural behavior. When was the last time you saw a dog leading another dog around on a lead? However . . . your dog’s daily walks are important times for the dog to get out and enjoy the neighborhood and it is important to teach your dog to enjoy walking on lead—even if you live in an area where your dog doesn’t generally go on lead walks. Leash manners are simply to keep your dog from pulling your arm out of its socket—not to have your dog in a perfect “heel” all the time. Start now and life will be easier later.

The workshop will be held in the shelter's outdoor play yard on Saturday, March 17th, with half hour sessions starting at 10:00 am, 10:30 am, 11:00 am, and 11:30 am. In the case of inclement weather, the workshop will move inside to the shelter's Community Education Room.

Dogs must be dog and people friendly, current on vaccinations, and leashed with a 4'-6' non-retractable leash.

The workshop is free, but monetary donations or items from the shelter's wish list are greatly appreciated!

We'd love to know how many people are planning to attend so we can set up the room accordingly. Please contact the shelter by phone at 920-674-2048 or respond to the Facebook event to let us know what session you're planning on attending!

Thinking about taking your dog to the dog park? This session will cover how to keep your dog (and you) safe at the dog park, how to determine if dogs are playing appropriately, and what to do if there’s a problem. We’ll also talk about how to decide if a dog park is the right place for your dog. Not all dogs are “dog park dogs”, just like not all people are social butterflies!

The workshop will be held in the shelter’s Community Education Room on Monday, March 12th, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

This event is for humans only, so please leave your pets at home.

Get on your dancing shoes and join the Humane Society of Jefferson County for the 4th Annual “Polka for the Pets” on Saturday, March 24 from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. This fun night of music and merriment will take place at the shelter, which is located at W6127 Kiesling Road, Jefferson.

Music will again be provided by the multi-talented Steve Meisner Band. Steve began playing the accordion at the age of five and has been earning a living in the music business since he was sixteen. Steve’s family has a rich musical heritage and he is a second-generation full time working musician. His father, the late Verne Meisner, had a successful music career for over 57 years. Steve’s brand of music is extremely versatile and appeals to a wide audience. He has made a name for himself by taking the music he grew up with and adding his own imagination and feeling. He has brought his brand of traditional American polka into the 21st century with a fresh spark & swing while retaining the roots of this music.

There will also be a cash bar and food available for purchase. All proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Jefferson County. The cost of admission is just $5.00, with additional donations gladly accepted. If you love music, dancing, animals, or just enjoy donating to a worthy cause, mark your calendar for Saturday, March 24 and ‘Polka for the Pets’!

Is your dog gravity-challenged? Dogs jump on people to get attention and as a form of greeting. Although they mean well, dogs can knock over small children, tear clothing, and rip skin in their enthusiasm. Many common techniques used to discourage a dog from jumping up often make the problem worse, hurt the dog, or put a person in danger.

Join Danielle Bartz of the Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic on Saturday, February 10 as she offers half hour sessions at 10:00 am, 10:30 am, 11:00 am, and 11:30 am in the shelter’s Community Education Room. Come when you can and stay as long as you’d like to learn the right way to teach your dog to keep all four on the floor.

Dogs must be people friendly, dog friendly, current on all vaccinations, and leashed with 4′ to 6′ non-retractable leash.

The workshop is free, but monetary donations or items from the shelter’s wish list are greatly appreciated!

There is a limit of 10 dogs per session. Please contact the shelter by phone at 920-674-2048 to register.
