Humane Society of Waupaca County
Stray cats and dogs from within the city limits will be taken to the Humane Society of Waupaca County (HSWC). If you find a stray animal during HSWC open hours, and if you can safely contain and transport the animal to the Adoption Center, you may take it there yourself. If you need assistance, please contact the City of Waupaca Police Department. If you have lost an animal, please contact HSWC to be entered into the Lost and Found log, or to reclaim it if it has already been found. If you would like to adopt an animal, HSWC has many wonderful animals up for adoption that are already spayed or neutered. The Adoption Center is located on Commercial Drive, behind the Waupaca Airport.
HSWC phone number is 715.258.2545
