Vet Pets

These pets love to go to the vet!

One of the most vulnerable times in a cat’s life is when it’s a small kitten. With so many other cats, the shelter just isn’t the healthiest place for a tiny kitten to spend those first weeks of life. So, we’re partnering with local veterinarians to place feline families in foster care at clinics in the southern Wisconsin area!

We all know how important consistent veterinary care is to the health of our pets. And we know that our area is so fortunate to be home to a host of wonderfully caring and compassionate vets and their staffs! The Vet Pets program currently has feline families in foster at four clinics:

All Creatures Small Animal Hospital - Janesville
Badger Veterinary Hospital - Janesville
Janesville Veterinary Clinic West - Janesville
Truesdell Animal Care Hospital - Madison

So how does it work? The Humane Society has provided housing and supplied for the kittens and their mamas in Vet Pets. The veterinarians agree to provide care and the spay/neuter surgery and their wonderful staffs give plenty of love and socialization to their feline friends. Best of all? Vet Pets kitties don’t come back to the shelter! They’re adopted right from the clinic!

Our mission is to help pets go home again. Before we can do that, we have to get them healthy and keep them that way. Vet Pets builds on the strong partnerships we have with the veterinary community of southern Wisconsin and is truly saving lives!

Programming like this is only possible because of the continued generosity of the community. The Humane Society depends on individual donations for more than half of its annual budget. Donating is easy and can be done online, over the phone or in person at the shelter.
