Looking to Bring Home a New Family Member? 

Click here to fill out our online adoption application.

  Applications are required for potential adopters to be considered as a home for one of our animals.

When animals are surrendered to us, we do any vet work  that they need. Including but not limited to spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming, microchip, heartworm testing, dentals, x-rays, bloodwork and anything else they may need. . We also take care of the grooming, pay for food, toys, treats, flea and tick preventative etc. while the pet is in our home! All of our adoption fees are set based on the amount of care the individual animal needed when they arrived or are based on their age to help off set extra costs by others.

2 yr old spayed female. Shots are utd. Housebroke. Very sweet, loves snuggles and to go for walks. She is very quiet in the hoise and does well home alone without a crate. She does well with other dogs but it does take her a little while to get to know them. No cats but excellent with kids. I know how to sit and lay down too. A good 80 pound girl.

Adoption fee.200.


This is Buddy he is looking for someone to give him an amazing home!
Great with other dogs & kids. We have had him neutered, utd on shots, microchipped, tested for heart worm & intestinal parasites. (Both negative) Also current on flea & tick prevention. Seems fine with cats. He is the sweetest boy ever but is all puppy. 10 months old. He is needing a home to be consistent with his training to get him to be the gentleman I know he can be.

Dogs Available-waiting list

These dogs are still with their families but are in need of new homes. They are on our waiting list until we are able to adopt out dogs we have for more space. They will be adopted through Paw Prints Ranch and will be properly vetted before the adoption. Please note that the information seen here has been provided by the family. This is not based on our evaluation, which will be done when the dog arrives for permanent placement.

"Adopting from Paw Prints Ranch was a great experience. Alissa really knows animals and is genuinely concerned for the well-being of the pets in her care."
-Marcia, Mt Horeb

"My family adopted a cat through Paw Prints Ranch, and we are so happy we did! She's a great addition to our home". 

- Elizabeth, Reedsburg

"I got my horse Trooper from Alissa as a horse she was rehoming. For a horse with such an interesting past he was very well behaved and I have been very happy with him the past three years I've had him! I would probably still be horseless if Alissa hadn't  given him to me!  So thank you!"     

 - Missy, Sauk City

"This post is a special thank you to Alissa! For those of you looking to bring a new addition into your homes and hearts...there is only one place to start, Paw Prints Ranch. You will be sure to find a furry friend to compliment your family and a friend for life in Alissa. Almost 3 years ago I adopted Cheyenne, formerly known as Daisy from Alissa...and over the years we have kept in contact...sharing stories of Cheyennes progress and pictures of our adventures together. My success with Cheyenne over the years I attribute to Alissa's solid beginnings with Cheyenne...daily attention, handling, training and LOVE. Thank you Alissa...your labors of love are greatly appreciated from both of us."  

-Lori and Cheyenne

"So thankful for Paw Prints Ranch helping me with Sydney to find her a loving home. I found myself in such a tough situation recently, when I could not take my cat Sydney with me for an out-of-state move. I had her since she was a kitten, and couldn't imagine saying goodbye, let alone finding her a suitable home. Calling around to several organizations in the area proved this wasn't going to be an easy task, and I was sick to my stomach trying to find a solution. It was then that Alissa from Paw Prints Ranch came to the rescue! She offered to take in Sydney and find her a wonderful home. It is evident she loves animals and is focused on finding the best home for each pet. I feel blessed that she was able to help, as I was able to say goodbye to Sydney knowing she will be loved and well taken care of."                                           -Nicole, See Her Blog Page
