If you have an animal you need to surrender, please fill out the following form:



You must fill out the rehoming application to move forward in the process.   We can not take an animal in if this has not been completed.   We require a $50 surrender fee  (cash or check is easiest) to help off-set the medical costs/care of the animal, and we can not take the animal in without receiving their current vet records.

Here at SFTS  we practice what is known as Managed Intake ,  meaning we choose the animals we take into our facility. Dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters or who need to be rescued from puppy mills and breeders are our top priority. As such, it's not guaranteed that we will be able to take in your dog or cat.   If we have the space and resources available, we will contact you via phone and/or email to set up a time to bring them in.


I adopted an animal from you, can I bring them back?   As per our adoption contract agreement, if you adopt an animal from us and then decide that they're no longer the best fit for your home, we do require them to be brought back to us. However, we are unable to provide a refund.

How long will it take for you to rehome my pet?   Adoption times vary  depending on many different factors     including age, breed, medical problems, and the temperament of the animal.

Do you take in strays?   No.   Due to the limited amount of space and resources that we have available, PLEASE do not drop a stray off at our facility.   If you find a stray dog or cat that is sick, injured, or aggressive, please    call Animal Control at 608-255-2345.   For all other strays, contact    the Dane County Humane Society at 608-838-0413 ext 100.   If you find a stray cat who has a tipped ear, it means they have been  trapped, spayed/neutered, and then released, and are best left alone.
