Winona Area Humane Society

The Winona Area Humane Society's mission is to prevent cruelty to animals, to relieve the suffering of animals and to provide humane education throughout Winona County. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and rely on donations and fees to provide for the care of animals and shelter operating costs. It is the policy of the Society to provide humane care and treatment for animals needing protection in the area served by the Society; to seek to return lost animals to their owners and to seek suitable homes for animals without owners. In its care and disposition of animals, the Society follows all standards prescribed by the Humane Society of the United States.

Adoption Process

The first step in the process is to fill out an application form. You must be at least 21 years old and have your landlord's permission to have a pet. Upon submitting an application, we will make a copy of your driver's license. An application takes 2-3 working days to process. Adopters will be contacted once the application is done being processed. At that time for a cat adoption, the office assistant will set up a pick up date and time. There must be about 2 days from the time of that call to pick up to give our staff time to prepare paper work, trim the cat's nails, clean ears, and prepare and carry out any needed vet work. 

Begin the Adoption Process
Please note: After submitting an adoption application, we recommend that you follow-up with the shelter to ensure they have received your adoption application from Petango. The shelter’s contact information can be found in the left hand column. Thank you.
