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, who realize that the richness of a community is often defined by those within it, and most often their giving spirit. 

Becoming a member of the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin is like joining a fun, exclusive club with amazing results: Feeding the soul of your love for animals. Your membership helps the thousands of animals we care for each year, including keeping them fed, healthy, clean, and happy. It also allows us to continue to focus on successful adoptions so lost and homeless pets move on into loving homes and furthers our goal to educate our community on 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 daily and the very heart of why we exist.
