Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin

Virtual Adopt-a-thon


With everything happening in the world lately, we need to get creative with our fundraising. Because of this, The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin’s first Virtual Adopt-a-thon is set to launch on May 1st, 2020. The virtual adopt-a-thon is a fun and easy way to help raise much-needed funds for our Capital Campaign, and you don’t even need to leave your home!

What is a "Virtual Adopt-a-thon?
During the entire month of May, the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin will be highlighting “adoptable” humans that the public will be able to “adopt” or make a donation in his or her name. All donations made through our virtual adopt-a-thon support the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin’s Capital Campaign for a new building!

Who are we looking for?
This is the first year for our web-based fundraiser and we need supporters interested in becoming adoptable humans—our goal this year is 30. We are looking for active members of our Southern Wisconsin community!

How can you apply to be an "adoptable" human?

To apply to become an adoptable human, simply fill out this form! You will receive an email from either Kaitie Swedlund at, or Hannah Hathaway at once we have had time to go through your application. If chosen, you will be asked to provide a couple pictures of yourself and a short bio (100-150 words). This bio should include who you are, what you do for our Southern Wisconsin community, and why you want to help pets go home!


Please reach out to Hannah at! Thank you!
