Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin


The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin was founded by a group of caring people who loved and respected animals and recognized the value an animal shelter can add to a community. To this day, this non-profit organization couldn’t continue its important work without the generosity of the compassionate supporters that make up our community, people like you. 

When you become a monthly member, you make a beautiful difference for our pets every single day. Your membership helps the thousands of animals we care for each year, keeping them fed, healthy, clean, and happy. It also helps us promote successful adoptions so lost and homeless pets find loving homes as we educate our community about animal care and ownership. Most tenderly, it’s an investment in the lives of all the kittens, cats, puppies, dogs, and other fuzzy and feathered friends we serve. Become a monthly member today!
