Hope's Lights

When authorities brought Ravioli to the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS), the trembling pup broke our hearts. Just one year old, Ravioli had been found inside a closed dumpster. He was malnourished and struggled to walk, and his eyes were bulging and bloodied. He was terrified of anyone who came near him.

Thanks to the generosity of animal lovers like you, our veterinary team was able to save Ravioli. One of his eyes was so badly damaged, it needed to be removed, but the other was healthy enough to salvage. With your help, we gave the recovering pup pain medication, vaccinations, a specialized diet, and drops to soothe his remaining eye.

With a bit of patience, a lot of love, and many tasty treats, Ravioli healed beautifully and regained his trust in humans. He would need a family that would love him unconditionally — and because of friends like you, that’s exactly what he found. Your kindness means Ravioli is spending the holidays with the loving family he always wanted.

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
  • $250 illuminates a wreath

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 for bringing hope to animals in need!
