For 30 years, the Humane Society of Waupaca County has been working to provide safe shelter for dogs, cats and other animals in and around Waupaca. From their start at the city-run dog pound to today's adoption center near the Waupaca Municipal Airport, they have continued to grow and help more pets every year. This exhibit will tell the history of the Humane Society, provide tips on adoption and caring for your pets at home and much more!
