Hopes Lights

Give Hope to Animals

Poor Jethro was found alone on a heavily wooded bike path – hungry, scared and badly injured.  He desperately needed help and the sweet boy eagerly allowed his finders to leash him up with a jump rope.  

Thankfully, Jethro was brought to the Wisconsin Humane Society. He may not have made it otherwise. You can imagine our horror when we discovered that Jethro had been shot at close range, shattering his jaw in two places. We rushed him into surgery to remove the bullet and repair the fractures.  

We can’t understand why people hurt animals, but we are here to help victims like Jethro. We were there for him until he was healthy and strong.  Today, he is living the life that every dog deserves – adored and loved by his new family. Despite everything that Jethro had been through, his tail was always wagging and his eyes never stopped smiling. Jethro knew he was safe. And finally, he has hope.

Giving hope is an essential part of what our community does - together. Hope propels us forward, in an effort to create a safer, more humane future for all of us, animals and people alike. We couldn’t do it without you.

Please help us kick off the season of giving with a gift to Hope's Lights. You can purchase a light in honor or memory of a beloved companion animal, person, or even a wild animal. If you'd like to donate in honor of a loved one and let them know, click here. 

  • $25 makes a light shine
  • $100 sets a strand of lights aglow
  • $200 illuminates a wreath
  • $500 lights an entire tree

Even a single light will make a real difference in the life of an animal. Together, we can shine hope in dark places and make life better for all of us. Thank you.                 


P.S. Don't forget to join us on Sunday, December 4 at 5:30 p.m. for our annual Hope's Lights celebration!
