Privacy Policy

This Wisconsin Humane Society does not collect personal information about you without your consent. The only personal information we collect is supplied directly by you through the use of online and offline forms (for example, donation form, volunteer form, donation check, etc.). The information is used solely to process your request. 

WHS collects and maintains the following types of donor information when it is voluntarily provided to us:

  • Contact information such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address
  • Giving information
  • Information on events attended, publications received and special requests for program information
  • Information provided by the donor in the form of comments and suggestions

This confidential information is kept on file for IRS purposes. It is also used to analyze overall giving patterns in order to make more accurate budget projections, as well as to understand donors’ interests in our mission and to update them on the organization’s plans and activities. This information is shared with staff, board members, volunteers and consultants only on a confidential and need-to-know basis. We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. 

Donors who supply WHS with their postal address or email address may be contacted periodically for solicitation purposes and/or with information regarding upcoming events. Donors may request to be permanently removed from the WHS mail and email list by contacting WHS via email, phone or postal mail. All requests to be removed from the WHS mail and email lists shall be honored.  


When you submit forms, we now use a secure server with encryption to ensure your personal information is guarded.

However, if you do not feel comfortable submitting personal information over the Internet, we suggest you print a copy of the form you wish to submit and fill it in by hand. You may then send it via fax to 414-431-6200 or send it to:
