Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin

Help Me, Heal Me Fund

The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin takes in thousands of animals each year. Sometimes our friends arrive a bit under the weather. Sometimes they come in with an injury. More often than not, every animal surrendered to us is in need of some type of medical care. Some may only need basic vaccines or routine surgery, while others may have symptoms of an undiagnosed, but treatable, illness.

The Help me, Heal Me Fund, restricted to medical needs—dental extractions, potentially fatal illnesses, emergency leg amputations, and more—has helped thousands of animals.
