The Neenah Animal Shelter exists to humanely care for lost, surrendered, neglected, impounded and abandoned pets until loving, forever homes are found for them.
Our LifeFirst ™ philosophy is a commitment to never euthanize any animal because of lack of space or funding, but to save, restore and rehome all adoptable animals under our care.
Our goal is to improve the quality and strength of the bond between people and their pets through education and example.

Harley's Second Chance at Life
This is Harley, one of the sweetest dogs you'll ever meet. Harley is our 11 year old Yellow Lab who was surrendered to the shelter. He underwent emergency surgery last week for a herniated disk. Like many seniors, if you move the wrong way or too fast, something in the body can give. That's what happened to Harley and he went from an energetic, playful boy to being completely immobile. He also lost use of his bladder. It was heart wrenching to see this otherwise healthy boy unable to walk. However, his loving eyes never lost their sparkle but pleaded for help; his tail never stopped wagging. He was saying "I am a fighter and have so much love to give."
The Neenah Animal Shelter's LifeFirst philosophy gave Harley a second chance. Extensive blood tests and a CT scan confirmed Harley had no other medical issues-he was a healthy boy who needed immediate surgery.
Harley is thriving just one week after his successful surgery!! He has so much energy it's hard to keep him quiet. He's walking, playing with his favorite squeaky toy and is giving kisses galore!
But Harley's surgery was expensive ($5,300.00), and unfortunately our medical fund has been depleted. We rely on caring and generous animal lovers to make our mission possible. Please consider helping us replenish this lifesaving fund so we can continue to help other amazing pets like Harley. We gave Harley a second chance and he's so glad that we did.
To make a contribution to help defray Harley's medical expenses, please follow the link to the right. Harley thanks you!.
UPDATE! Three weeks after Harley's emergency surgery to repair a herniated disk, he's walking on his own, his staples have been removed, his fur is growing back and he's getting ready to begin therapy in his new pool (heaven for a Retriever). Looking at him today, you'd never know he had this lifesaving surgery. His energy level is amazing and his smile radiates joy about being given a second chance at life. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and supporters, we've raised $1,700 of the $5,300 goal needed to defray Harley's surgery costs and replenish our lifesaving medical fund. But we need your help to reach this goal! Donations of any amount are truly appreciated. Together, we can continue to help other pets like Harley who deserve a second chance.
