Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin

Sponsor a Pet

Consider it a cyber hug for our shelter animals!

For just $35 you can sponsor any of our shelter pets – dogs or cats – until they bounce up and down on their way to their forever home.

Your gift helps support daily care: cleaning, feeding, socializing, care products and even any medical needs of your chosen pet. Plus, we’ll put your name and a message on the pet’s star profile page. A purrrrr-fect or dog-gone great way to show you care! Thank you for the hugs!

During the checkout process, please be sure to indicate which pet you're interested in sponsoring. If you have any questions about sponsorship, please contact us!
