The Victoria Wellens Center for the Ozaukee Humane Society is a state-of-the-art animal care facility.

Program elements include an adoption center, veterinary clinic and educational classroom spaces.

The building aesthetic reflects the unique culture of the Humane Society and the semi-rural character of the area. Building materials were designed for durability and easy maintenance, while minimizing disease and noise transmission. The layout provides warm, welcoming spaces with abundant natural daylight, supporting a high quality visitor experience. The Wellens Center was designed to be the first “green” animal shelter in the Midwest, earning a LEED Gold Certification.
