Welcome to the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin!

May, 2019

We have been busy with our capital campaign over the winter months, and our hard work is now paying off.  We surpassed our goal of 100 Extraordinary Women, registering 115 as of May 21, 2019.  We recently began a new initiative designed to raise funds for the campaign while remembering those special pets in our life, it is called 500 Unforgettable Pets for $500.  I plan to speak with the local high schools and have their art departments design and create panels for the new shelter remembering these 500 Unforgettable Pets.  In early May we were approached by a local excavation company, McKnight Excavation, and Al McKnight offered to donate his services to handle all of our excavation needs for our new shelter, Wow what a generous offer.  As summer approaches we are hoping that our HVAC system holds up.  Tri-Cor, our HVAC contractor, has been working diligently to keep us and more importantly all of our four legged friends comfortable.  As our capital campaign enters the public phase we hope you will consider donating.  We have many Naming opportunities available, ranging from $250 Bricks to the rights to name the entire facility and everything in between.  Just give me a call and I’ll help you to find the best opportunity for you.

There are a number of events planned for the coming months, ranging from Bark in the Park with the Beloit Snappers to a music event appropriately named “Woofstock”.  We hope you can join us for one of our many events this summer, check our website and FaceBook pages for information.  We are getting busier with more pets coming through our doors looking for their forever homes, please help us to help them go home.

I would like to personally thank all of our volunteers and each and every one of our staff members for all of their hard work.  You are all very special and make the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin a very special place. Thank you for all that you do every day.

Please feel free to stop by the Humane Society at any time and consider donating to our capital campaign.

Thank You All,

Mike McManus
Executive Director
