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!
Wisconsin Humane Society announces
“50K Community Cares Challenge”
Shelter animals to receive $50,000 if 500 animals are adopted in September
Milwaukee and Saukville, Wis. – Wisconsin Humane Society officials announced today that local philanthropist Stan Kass will donate $50,000 to the organization if their Milwaukee and Ozaukee shelters can find homes for 500 animals in the month of September.
“We are so thankful to Stan for his generosity, which he also hopes will inspire the whole community to show just how much they care about homeless animals,” said Anne Reed, WHS’s executive director. “Whether you’re able to adopt a homeless animal, or make a gift to WHS, we know that Southeastern Wisconsin can step up to the challenge and make a difference in the lives of countless animals in our community.”
During September, WHS will be taking pictures with adopters to post to a special Facebook album and share with our online community. Help WHS reach the goal of 500 adoptions by sharing the news of this special challenge that will save the lives of so many animals!
