Humane Officers

Humane Officer Employment

We do not have the staff or resources in the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection to provide job placement services for humane officers. Here are some suggestions for your job search.

Public employee jobs in Wisconsin are posted online at

County jobs are listed at the Wisconsin Counties Association website

City and village jobs are listed on the League of Wisconsin Municipalities website.

Township jobs are listed on the Wisconsin Towns Association website

You should be aware that, while more and more local governments are appointing humane officers, the majority of those in Wisconsin have not done so. You will not find many humane officers jobs listed on the websites above. You may be better off starting as a self-employed independent contractor and approaching counties, towns, villages and cities in the part of the state where you want to work to sell them on the humane officer idea.
