New Donations for Wisconsin Humane Society Racine Campus matched up to $50,000

RACINE – The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is excited to share that the Ruud Family Foundation is matching all new and increased donations made to the Racine Campus in 2024, up to $50,000! All first-time gifts to the campus will be automatically doubled, as well as every dollar donated above past donors’ total giving amount in 2023. 

“The Ruud Family Foundation has been a steadfast champion of our work in the Racine community,” said Alison Fotsch Kleibor, president and CEO of WHS. “They are not only supporting animals and families in Racine County, but also helping to inspire additional gifts from the community.”

The WHS Racine Campus is located at 8900 16th Street in Mount Pleasant and opened in March 2020. Animals in the adoption program have as long as it takes to find a new home; there are no time or space limits. In addition to public vaccine clinics, spay/neuter services, and stray/surrender intake, the Racine Campus also offers a range of youth programs including summer camps, birthday parties, Scout nights, field trips, and Kids Night Out.
