Other Ways to Donate


Donate your cell phone!

Wondering what to do with your old cell phone?

Don’t throw it away! Your phone can help animals at the shelter.  The Wisconsin Humane Society participates in a cell phone recycling program. This program helps protect the environment by keeping these recyclable items out of landfills, while at the same time bringing in funds to help animals in our community.

WHS can earn up to $100 per phone! You can drop off your phone during our open hours. If you have any questions, please contact our Development Department at 414-431-6270 or email.

Recycle for cash in Milwaukee and Door County!

You can save animals and the environment at the same time.

You would be amazed at the things you have laying around the home, basement, and garage that can be recycled for cash! The Wisconsin Humane Society and Action Recyclers have teamed up to give you the chance to donate your scrap metal and help animals at the same time. Here is the process for Milwaukee donations:

  • Collect any unwanted items and bring them to Action Recyclers.  Please do not bring these prohibited items.
  • When you drop off your items, inform Action Recyclers that you want your donation to go towards the Wisconsin Humane Society. 
  • Upon the completion of the donation, you will retrieve your voucher indicating the value and the type of item(s). This voucher may be kept for your personal records.

Drop off your items at:

Sponsor animal care

From food to vaccines, collars to beds, medical care to behavioral support… this work is critical to homeless animals in our community, but the expenses add up quickly. Please consider sponsoring some of the costs of care for animals at WHS!
