Who We Are

FVHA’s Mission

“To serve as a trusted resource for the community by promoting positive relationships between people and animals and demonstrating exceptional leadership in animal welfare.”

FVHA’s Vision

“The needs of every animal are met, and the community is provided the resources to enrich the human animal bond.”

The Fox Valley Humane Association has been serving the animals in the Fox River Valley community since 1891 and remains an area leader in animal care, welfare, and education.

FVHA’s facility, the Susan Schuster Pet Resource Center on Two Mile Road, opened in 2005. Thanks to the help of our dedicated supporters, the 21,000-square-foot “ark” building was designed to meet the diverse needs of the animals and people of the community. The shelter features a top-of-the-line ventilation system to curtail the spread of disease, an education room to provide valuable animal training and educational programs, the Sarah Paul Surgical Suite, space for approximately 75 dogs and 150 cats, a room for the smaller “exotic” animals, private “get-acquainted rooms” for people meeting potential pets, and so much more.

The thousands of animals that temporarily reside at FVHA each year are in good hands and well cared for by our passionate staff, veterinary team, and volunteers. All animals receive fresh food, water, blankets, beds, and toys each day and animals are socialized and/or walked on a daily basis. All cats and dogs are spayed or neutered, up-to-date on routine vaccines, tested for heart worm (dogs) or feline leukemia (cats), micro-chipped, and complete a basic health exam and behavior assessment before going home with a new family. We love our animals more than words can express and have multiple programs in place to meet each animal’s needs during his or her time at the shelter.  FVHA’s programs include our canine and feline foster programs, Rover Done Over, Rebound, and others.

The Fox Valley Humane Association is a full-service, state-of-the-art animal shelter and resource center, serving thousands of people and their pets each year. FVHA works 24/7 to see that no animal need in the Fox Valley goes unmet. FVHA is a locally-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on saving lives and offers a variety of services programs, and events to the community in addition to a safe haven for companion animals. FVHA offers 24/7 assistance to local law enforcement, spay & neuter programs, assistance for pet parents, a variety of classes, community programs, direct animal care for homeless pets, adoption services, and more.

FVHA was granted a Dog Sellers & Dog Facility Operators License by the WI Dept. of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection and is in compliance with all state regulations as set in place by Wisconsin Act 90. To view FVHA’s complete inspection report, click here.
