Welcome to HSSW
The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin (formerly the Rock County Humane Society) is a private nonprofit 501c3 organization whose mission is to provide shelter and humane care to lost and homeless pets, reunite lost pets with their families, promote positive pet adoptions and educate our community in order to inspire compassion and responsible pet guardianship.
From socializing cats to walking dogs to helping at events, there’s a little something for everyone!
Helping pets go home again. That’s our mission every day. In 2022 alone we helped over 1,800 pet find safe and loving homes.
HSSW started with folks just like you who wanted to make a difference in the lives of pets. Choose your gift type and level!
WHAT WE DO
The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin is happy to offer low-cost spay and neuter services to the community.
In the words of Cesar Millan, you won’t ever regret microchipping your pet. But if your dog or cat gets lost, you will regret not doing it.
A Small Donation Goes
a Long Way
The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin started with folks just like you who wanted to be the voice for animals in our community. You can choose your gift type and level—every gift makes a beautiful difference! As a non-profit with more than 50% of our funding coming from donations and grants, we thank you for helping us fulfill our mission: Helping pets go home again. We could not do it without you.
