Carrying the legacy of Carl W. Nelson, the Carl W. Nelson Animal Shelter is a 501c3 organization in Mauston, Wisconsin. We operate a modern, no-kill animal shelter for Juneau County's homeless animals.  We are licensed by the State of Wisconsin DATCP license number 411646.  We are a non-profit organization with a mission to help homeless animals through our adoption program, community outreach programs and humane education programs.    If you would like to help us by becoming a volunteer, visit our volunteer page,  our donation page, or our membership page WE NEED YOU!
