I've got a couple dogs from Northwoods Humane Society. Both were great animals. The staff is great. I've been to several other humane societies, none as good though. Make it a point to help, however you can. I like to walk dogs and think it probably does me more good then them. Check out there shop on 2nd. st. in Hayward.
Thanks for making our area a better community

Very nice facility. My family had adopted some cats/kittens from here in the past, and we adopted a cat and dog from the humane society after I had graduated. Lovely staff, Lovely animals. Keep up the good work! This is a picture of our animals, Charles and Bronson.

I've adopted 2 dogs from this shelter & always am amazed at that care & concern they have for the welfare of the animals!! Go above & beyond trying to find the perfect home for these fur babies! So much so, I watch from out of state to see what they have going on! It's worth the trip to work with these folks!!

This is a no kill shelter. They take abused animals, dog mill animals, horded animals. Korean dog meat animals, lost and abandoned animals. All get neutered or spayed. All get what ever medical attention they need. Training, socialization, love. These pitiful animals get it all to become your perfect and best friend. Please support the NorthwoodsHumane Society in Hayward Wi. My little Mr Diggs.

I wasn't able to adopt a pet from Northwoods Humane Society but I volunteered there for a few summers walking dogs. The facility is so well-kept, the staff are all incredibly kind, and the animals are truly in an ideal temporary home. The trails that the dogs are walked on are of varying lengths so all dogs can get their best walk in a beautiful setting. They also get play/run time in the fenced enclosure out back. Amazing place for some lucky animals!

An outstanding shelter! All of the animals are taken care of by trained, caring staff and volunteers. NHS has a beautiful, clean facility and offers a wonderful dog park to the community free of charge. They cooperate with many other community organizations and have extended their outreach to other towns and states. NHS recently extended its services to South Korea to assist dogs that were in need of health care and homes. Overall, the Northwoods Humane Society is a very special place for animals and its many visitors.

I adopted a female Chihuahua about 11 years ago and a male Chihuahua 4 years ago from this shelter and was very satisfied with the adoption. The shelter is beyond clean and run very well and the staff's dedication to animals is mind-boggling. I have been very happy with my little angel dogs and would most certainly adopt another animal from this shelter in a heartbeat. The shelter manager has had years of dedication to this shelter right from the beginning and you'll not find another person more dedicated to finding homes for these dogs and cats than her. She has a genuine love for pets and works hard for this organization. I only wish we had a shelter as well run as this one is in LaSalle County Illinois. A++++
