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.

I apologize for not knowing this I totally sure as I had hamsters all my life, can mice be housed in pairs or small groups like rats can?

And remember do not give anyone a pet as a gift. Chocolate is a gift, animals are a lifelong commitment.

Thank you so much for kari! She is starting to settle and be more chatty. We love watching flit around in her cage
