Door County Humane Society Changes Adoption Hours in 2016

The Door County Humane Society (DCHS) is making two substantial changes to its organization to better serve the Door County community and to increase the number of adoptions taking place at DCHS. In 2016, DCHS has changed the visiting and adoption hours that are open to the public. “Being open until later in the day provides more people with the opportunity to visit us and our many animals after they are done with work. A majority of Wisconsin shelters have hours similar to the ones that we are putting into place at the start of the New Year. We hope that expanding our hours means more individuals from the community come through our doors and adopt,” stated DCHS Director Carol Boudreau.

DCHS will now be open during the following hours: 12 – 6 pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday; and 12 – 4 pm Saturday 12 – 4 pm.

The second change at DCHS is the new pricing structure for cat and kitten adoption fees. Previously all cats and kittens were $90. Starting Jan. 1, 2016, the new prices will be as follows: $90 kittens (5 months and younger), $45 adults (six months to eight years), $50 bonded adult pairs (two cats that are dependent on each other), and there’s no fee to adopt senior cats (nine years and older).
