About Us

Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter will be a passionate advocate that will provide quality care for companion animals in need as we seek their forever homes and educate the community about responsible pet ownership.

The dream of an animal shelter in southwest Wisconsin is becoming reality. Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter will serve the counties of Grant, Crawford, and Clayton counties of southwest Wisconsin and North East Iowa.
In 2007, a small group of people met in a Prairie du Chien, WI, park to discuss the need for an animal shelter in the area. In 2008. The number of volunteers increased and so did the fundraising.
Our first goal was to raise money for land. Thanks to the generous donation of Steve and Lynda Welter, our first goal was reached.
Finally, in 2017, we reached our second goal, that of a building. We are very grateful to our friends who contributed money, time, and expertise.
Our third goal was to hire a shelter manager and raise enough money to operate for an entire year. This goal has been met. 
We will be open by appointment on December 4, 2018.
