I’ve been a lifelong dog lover, but my dedication to pups doesn’t just end there! I have over 14+ years of experience as a dog owner or handler. I wouldn’t trade a second of it for anything! I’ve learned so much in the process, and getting to bring happiness to loving pups is always such an amazing experience.

Dog Boarding in Appleton

The Fox Valley Humane Association (FVHA) in Appleton is a full-service, state-of-the-art animal shelter and resource center dedicated to caring for the Fox Valley’s pets and the people who love them. Founded in 1891, FVHA is the second-oldest humane society in Wisconsin. Since 2005, FVHA has operated out of a 21,000-square-foot ark shaped facility.

FVHA’s programs and services are numerous and benefit more than 6,000 animals each year. Twice a month, FVHA’s Bark Bus transports dogs from overcrowded shelters in the southern United States to Wisconsin, saving them from almost certain euthanasia. FVHA finds homes for 100% of adoptable dogs, meaning no dog is ever euthanized to control population numbers or because the shelter is full. The Bark Bus helps save adoptable dogs who would otherwise be euthanized. 

FVHA serves low-income households with a spay-neuter assistance program, a low-cost vaccine clinic, and a mobile clinic providing basic veterinary services. These programs benefit the community at large by helping keep animals healthy and in loving homes, out of shelters. FVHA also works to keep feral cats out of shelters with a trap, neuter, and return program.

 And FVHA’s impact doesn’t stop there. A therapy dog program certifies and connects therapy dogs and their handlers with people living in hospice and kids learning to read. In addition, FVHA partners with local sponsors to provide companion animals to service men and women, at no cost to veterans. The Vet Pet program recognizes the powerful impact companion animals have on the lives of their humans, including improved mental, emotional, and physical health, enhanced social skills, reduced stress, anxiety, and depression, and lower blood pressure. FVHA and The Veteran and Pet Community Coalition help veterans connect with companion animals, to improve the lives of veterans and to express gratitude for their service.
