Social Services Offered at WisCARES

WisCARES social service offerings are always expanding–currently we offer

  • Short-term boarding and long-term foster
  • Resource gathering and assistance
  • Pet food and supply pantry
  • Landlord education
  • Linking with existing resources in the Madison area (food pantries, etc.)
  • Navigating emotional support animal and service dog questions relating to FHA and ADA laws
  • Navigating veterinary health care outside of what the WisCARES program is able to provide
  • Animal surrender assistance
    • WisCARES’ primary goal is to ensure that pets can remain with their owners; we do not function as a pet rescue center and we do not accept owner surrenders. However, we do understand that there are extraordinary circumstances in which a pet owner may decide that it is in their family’s best interest for the animal to be re-homed. In these situations, we can help you navigate this process.
