The Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center is permanently closed.Last year, we carefully and thoughtfully reviewed our program for sustainability. We came to the conclusion that it is in the best interest of the animals and the community we serve to cease operations. We saved many lives and achieved many goals. Unfortunately, the costs associated with maintaining a property and providing extremely high quality care for the animals were more than we could support.We sincerely believe that our time and talents will be embraced by one or more of the other reputable local animal welfare organizations and utilized in a more economical manner. In fact, many of our volunteers have already begun searching for their next opportunity to serve the animals and our community.

We do not consider this to be a failure. We are very proud of all that we have accomplished. We simply feel that the available community resources should be directed towards animal care and programming instead of property maintenance and overhead.

All of the animals in our program have been successfully adopted!

ATTENTION ADOPTERS: If you should require assistance at any time, please do not hesitate to call 414-421-8881 or email for guidance and support. To surrender an animal adopted from the Center, please contact the Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County by calling 262-542-8851. HAWS has graciously agreed to provide care and re-adoption services for any animal adopted through the Center.

Daniel has been officially adopted by my family! Don’t worry…he will remain active in the animal welfare community as an ambassador for homeless animals!

On behalf of the animals and all those who have served them, please accept our sincerest gratitude for your support throughout the last 8 years. We have much to be proud of and thankful for…our legacy will live on through the many volunteers and adopters and supporters who will continue to advocate and advance animal welfare initiatives locally and otherwise!
For the animals,

Amy Rowell (and Daniel)
