Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin

Annual Report

Each year we work to save, care for, and send home as many animals as we can. Below is a graphic illustrating our recent success.

We are a no-kill shelter, but there are some cases—extreme illness or dangerous behavior—that force euthanasia. We take in hundreds of strays, often injured or very ill pets, and despite our med team’s best efforts a small number cannot be saved.

Those extreme cases factor into our Live Release Rate (shown below) as follows: total intake number (all animals) minus number we cannot save (DOA / Died / Euthanasia) equals the Live Release number. Within that formula, euthanasia numbers dropped dramatically this past year (see graphic “key” below).

If you would like to see more details on our services and intake / outcomes, please click into our Annual Report that appears after the graphic.
