The Wisconsin Humane
Society is honored to recognize individuals who
make significant contributions to our many lifesaving
programs and services. The following list will give
you an idea of some of the naming opportunities
available to you.
by a colorful streetscape, the Adoption Center helps
visitors feel the fun and excitement of selecting
a new animal companion. The Center includes Adoption
Avenue (see photo) and Dog Town, places where visitors
will want to come back frequently to learn about
animals, visit our retail store, Animal Antics,
or learn about animal behavior or volunteering.
Cats may not find
a mint on their pillow before bed, but the amenities
are four star. Cats are seen lounging in their suites
while being pampered prior to adoption. Natural
light, soft music and plenty of love makes this
an enjoyable experience for cats who are awaiting
new, loving homes.
Other adoption related
naming opportunities include the marquee at the
Adoption Avenue reception desk, the Small Animal
Boutique, Small Animal cages, the Animal Antics
store for creature comforts, Catnap suites and "I
Know" educational spots!
at WHS start with the extraordinary medical services
provided for animals. The WHS veterinary clinic
heals, treats and sterilizes thousands of animals
annually. Our clinic is the only one in Wisconsin
operating solely to serve low-income households
as well as abandoned and homeless animals.
from abandonment is handled in a dignified manner
in this private area. Clients have an opportunity
to say farewell to a loved companion they can no
longer care for in this quiet, non-clinical setting.
For all adoptable animals, this is the first step
in a journey to a new, loving home.
One of the saddest
moments for animal lovers is surrendering a beloved
pet due to illness or injury. The Grieving Room,
adjacent to Animal Arrivals, is a place where individuals
can express their grief in private.
naming opportunities include our veterinary office
suites, treatment areas, the Intensive Care Unit,
exam rooms, recovery rooms, guest lodging for dogs
and cats, isolation rooms to contain illnesses and
food preparation areas.
The WHS Wildlife
hospital is a nationally recognized rehabilitation
center, serving more than 90,000 injured, orphaned
or sick wild animals in the past eighteen years,
qualifying it as one of the largest centers in the
Outdoor Wildlife Enclosure
This outdoor area
has been carefully designed to meet the unique needs
of a wide variety of wild animals as they are being
prepared for release. While acclimating to the weather,
animals have a chance to readjust to interacting
with other animals like themselves and to fend for
food. Many birds on the last leg of their recovery
require the protected environment for physical conditioning
that this area provides.
Many of the animals
received into the wildlife center are very young
orphans. They have no opportunity to be returned
to their mom. The wildlife center's nursery is dedicated
to the special needs of these babies.
Other wildlife center
naming opportunities include a Treatment and Exam
Area, a Wild Bird Display, a Treatment Center, an
Intensive Care Unit, a Baby Raccoon Room, a Baby
Duckling Room and the Loon Laundry Room.
a crucial role in ending animal overpopulation and
animal cruelty as well as providing training and
behavior information that helps people maintain
the bonds with their companion animals. WHS Education
staff are nationally recognized for innovative programs
that change the community. The center consists of
three classrooms, each of which can be named.
Bricks and Medallions
A wonderful way to honor a very special human or
animal friend while helping animals in need is to
purchase a personalized brick
or a beautiful
medallion to adorn the exterior of the Society.
to put a face to our mission, these medallions celebrate
the lives of wild and companion animals. An oil
painting is produced from a photograph, which is
used to create a porcelain on steel image attached
to the facility. The oil painting will be given
to the generous contributor!

It is our wish to ensure that your love of animals
lives on into the future!
