How do I report a lost / missing animal?
We understand the stress and anxiety involved when a beloved pet is missing from home. We strive to offer as many resources as possible to assist in locating your missing family member.
We suggest filing a lost animal report with area humane societies. You should also contact the Sheriff’s department and/or your local law enforcement officers to file a missing animal report. In addition, social media can be instrumental in quickly spreading the word along with a photo to help bring your beloved pet home more quickly.

Do you take any kind of animal?
TCHS does not receive any county funding. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization. Due to this status and our limited capacity we only accept cats and dogs. Please note that we do have intake criteria that each animal must meet as well.
How do I report a stray/found dog or cat?
Please provide your name, phone number, breed if known, and as detailed of a description as possible to provide the best chance of reuniting the animals with their family.
TCHS contracts with local municipalities for collecting stray dogs. The Trempealeau County website lists the contact information for each municipality. In most cases, you will contact your local municipality office or chairperson and alert them to the stray dog. Alternately you can contact the Sheriff’s Department at 715-538-4351 to report the stray dog.
Please call TCHS at 608-525-2300 to report a stray cat. We have an intake system for accepting stray cats and while we strive to accept as many stray cats as possible we don’t always have the room to accommodate every stray cat at our shelter so you may be placed on a waiting list.
