Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin

Happy Home, Safe Home

The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin is not only committed to helping pets go home, but making sure that home is safe. Even in the most trying of times, 48% of domestic violence survivors will stay in an abusive situation rather than leave a pet behind. In partnership with Defy Domestic Abuse Beloit, HSSW's Happy Home, Safe Home Program can help you take the steps necessary towards safety, pet included. Whether that be financial assistance for pet needs, providing temporary pet housing or food, veterinary care, or anything in between, HSSW is here to help.

If you are experiencing similar circumstances with your pet and are in need of assistance, please reach out to HSSW Business Development Director, Kaitie Swedlund, at kswedlund@petsgohome.org or by phone at 608-752-5622. 

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, please seek support from Defy Domestic Abuse Beloit at 608-364-1083.
