K&R Small Animal Sanctuary was founded in 2009 to help fill a need in Wisconsin rescuing and rehoming the smallest shelter inhabitants. Today, K&R Small Animal Sanctuary is a 501c3 non-profit organization made up of local and satellite foster homes, transporters, many local veterinarians, participating pet stores, and volunteers.

K&R has successfully teamed up with area shelters and rescue organizations to assist in re-homing their small animals. This allows these facilities to focus on the dogs and cats that need their assistance and lets K&R focus on the rabbits, guinea pigs, and other little critters!

Adopt A Pet

Foster a Pet

Want to meet one of our animals?

All K&R animals are in foster homes.

We do not have a facility open to the public. If you’re interested in meeting one of the animals you see here, the first step is to fill out an adoption application. This isn’t an obligation to adopt if the animal is not a match for your family – it helps us get to know a bit more about your household in order to find the best fit!

Once your application gets approved, our adoption coordinators work to gather up the critters that caught your eye from their respective foster homes and set up a time for you to meet or adopt. Meet-and-greets are typically done in the Appleton/Oshkosh areas where the majority of our foster homes are located.

WOO HOO!!!

Welcome Bourbon!!

This handsome little old man was found wandering around Milwaukee as a stray and recently made the trip to K&R thanks to BRATStransport

He is estimated to be 10+ years old and has some typical age-related issues (mild arthritis, hearing-loss and some vision deficiencies), but he is settling into rescue life well!

Bourbon is super food motivated and loves a warm snuggly bed!

Bourbon will be neutered and have a dental cleaning soon and once he’s recovered will be ready to interview candidates to be his forever family!
