How Do I Adopt?

Adopters Welcome* 
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 1 pm - 6 pm
Saturday 11 am - 3 pm
*Appointment required for dog visits

In order to provide the best service we can, and with respect to our limited staffing and space, we're asking people to please
only plan to stop in if you are truly interested in adopting. Those who want to spend time with animals for fun or to socialize with them are
encouraged to join our volunteer program.

*Appointments for dog visits are required in order to ensure availability of staff and space. Dogs are shown to adopters in a private room by an adoption counselor who can talk with the adopter about what they are looking for in a companion. Please click below for more information on our adoption processes. 

For other animals in our area looking for homes, visit the Community Rehoming Page (animals on this page are not affiliated with the Oshkosh Area Humane Society (OAHS) and the OAHS adoption process does not apply)

Adoptions at OAHS are not based on first-come-first-adopted but are based on matchmaking so it's a win-win for everyone.
