Advocacy

Do you want to help animals? They certainly need your assistance.

Dogs and cats can't speak for themselves when they are being treated badly. Neither can other animals. They can't run for political office. They can't hire lawyers to defend them or lobbyists to press their case with lawmakers.

Animals have no hope for humane care and treatment without us. Major decisions affecting the lives of all animals are made every day by public employees and elected officials. Companion animals, farm animals, wildlife, animals in laboratories and animals used in entertainment are all at risk. People who care about animals need to speak up and share their opinions with policy makers.

The Wisconsin Humane Society is actively pursuing more humane public policies to protect animals and treat them with respect and kindness. We lobby legislators in the State Capitol, we work with Milwaukee County and City officials and we offer easy ways for our supporters to communicate their feelings to legislators. There is strength in numbers, so please take action today!
