Our Mission

Our mission is to improve animal lives through rescue, education and adoption. We will provide compassionate animal care and comfort as we connect animals with loving forever homes. 

Every Paw Matters. 

About Us

The Grant County Humane Society has had quite a journey. Since the early 1970s we have been taking in "at-large" dogs, housing them until they are claimed by their owners or keeping them and finding them FUREVER homes. 

In 2014 we moved with Lancaster Veterinary Clinic into Lancaster WI and since then, have been also taking surrendered animals and cats, birds, guinea pigs, and more to help these animals and their people. We became a not for profit at that time and have been growing ever since. 

In 2023 a new building was purchased in Platteville WI and once renovations are complete GCHS will move into it's new, bigger location. 

Since 2014 the GCHS has rehomed over 2000 animals with more finding loving homes every day.
