The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness. For more than 128 years, WHS has been saving the lives of animals in need. We offer adoption services that place 9,000 animals in new homes annually, veterinary services that save thousands of lives, educational programs that instill respect for animals, behavior services to assist guardians and a myriad of other initiatives that help end suffering for animals. We depend entirely on private donations to fund our programs and rely on volunteers in nearly every department. If you are interested in adopting, volunteering, enrolling in a class, taking a tour or making a donation, check out our comprehensive web site at wihumane.org. The adoptable animals' web pages are updated every 30 minutes!
Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, it’s time to feel good about #GivingTuesday, a special movement started in 2012. Kick off the holiday season with a gift to a cause that really matters to you – homeless, injured, and abused animals in need of your help. You can make a gift to WHS in honor of someone special, and even send an e-card to let them know, as part of our Hope’s Lights campaign. Donate now by using the buttons at the bottom of this page: http://bit.ly/18NJVPJ We're so grateful for your generosity and support!
