Pet Food For Families In Need

Furry Friend Food Program

The health and emotional benefits of sharing your life with an animal are enormous but the cost of providing proper care for an animal can also be high, ranging from $350-750 annually for each animal in a household. WHS staff members have heard horror stories of people having to choose between feeding themselves and feeding their animals - because they couldn't afford both.

The Wisconsin Humane Society believes that tight financial times should not break the bonds of love and companionship between people and their companion animals. The Wisconsin Humane Society temporarily provides Furry Friend Food for individuals from Milwaukee County and Ozaukee County who are struggling to provide food for their animals and who demonstrate a financial need. This program has helped many people keep their animals and provide them with proper nutrition.  For more information, or to see if you qualify, please call 414-431-6263. You can also apply online, using our Furry Friend Food Application.

All sizes, brands, and types of food are greatly appreciated! If you have questions about donating, please call 414-264-6257 and dial 0.

Hope's Lights 2014

Each year we illuminate the shelter and grounds at the Wisconsin Humane Society with holiday lights in honor and in memory of special people and animals in our lives. Please help us kick off the season of giving with a gift to Hope’s Lights. Every $25 light makes a real difference in the life of an animal.
