Shelter From The Storm

SFTS is a group of dedicated volunteers who work together to save adoptable animals from over-crowded animal shelters. Our goal is to reduce the euthanasia rate of healthy, adoptable animals in the nations' over-crowded humane societies and shelters. We bring adoptable animals into a home environment by placing them into a suitable foster home where they begin basic training and socialization. We also attend to their medical needs including vaccinations, heartworm testing, feline leukemia/FIV testing, deworming, and flea/tick prevention. We strive to educate the public on animal health care and animal overpopulation. In addition to our adoption services, we provide a low cost Spay Me! clinic open to the public. Our goal is to ultimately provide a full service, sliding scale veterinary clinic. To schedule an appointment, call 608-224-1400. Visit our website for more information.

Adoption Process

We encourage anyone interested in adopting within the next six months to fill out a general application and get pre-approved. When you are pre-approved the adoption process is quicker and easier. We process the applications as they are submitted. If several applications are received for the same animal, we choose the applicant based on the best fit for the animal. It typically takes about a week to process an application. We will give you a phone call to discuss any animals you are interested in adopting. It is extremely important that you return our call. If there is a waiting list for a particular animal we will call the next best fit candidate if our call is not returned within 24 hours. All of our adoptions are completed every Saturday at Petsmart East between 10AM and 2PM. You must be able to pick up your new pet at Petsmart East during these hours.
