Double Your Impact!
Today you have the opportunity to make your gift go twice as far to help animals in Wisconsin. Isn’t that fantastic? Thanks to the George Kress Family Foundation, the Nicholas Family Foundation, Joyce Madsen & pups, Jude Ford, the Robertson Family, Nancy Behrens, Todd & Kim James, Kathleen Ryan, and other friends of the Wisconsin Humane Society, your donation will have twice the impact on the 40,000+ animals we care for each year at our Green Bay, Door County, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, and Racine Campuses.
Any gift you give will automatically double in value — up to $200,000*!
- $30 will become $60 to provide training
for dogs with special behavior needs.
- $50 will become $100 to help spay or neuter animals
so they can be adopted and given the second chance they deserve.
- $100 will become $200 to help rescued animals receive emergency surgery,
medical treatment, and behavioral support.
This matching opportunity couldn’t come at a better time. So many animals in our community are in urgent need of food, water, shelter, medical care, behavioral support, and a new family to cherish them. Please help give twice the love to cats, dogs, and other animals in our community so they can lead happy, healthy lives.
Please consider making a gift now to give twice the hope to animals who are counting on us. Thank you so much.
*Donations made to the Green Bay and Door County Campuses will be generously matched up to $100,000 thanks to the George Kress Family Foundation and up to $100,000 in donations made to the Milwaukee, Ozaukee, and Racine Campuses will be matched by the Nicholas Family Foundation, Joyce Madsen & pups, Jude Ford, the Robertson Family, Nancy Behrens, Todd & Kim James, Kathleen Ryan, and other friends of the Wisconsin Humane Society.

Three Tails of Bravery
This month, we're telling the stories of three amazing animals who beat the odds, thanks to the support of donors like you. Without your contributions, we simply couldn't do this work each and every day when animals need us most.
Right now, our shelter is bursting at the seams with animals like Dubai. This trembling pup was one of 33 dogs seized from a single house and brought to the Wisconsin Humane Society. Every animal from that home was fearful and initially wary of human interaction, but Dubai was especially terrified. Despite our best efforts, she spent weeks cowering in the corner, not letting anyone near her. Thankfully, a dedicated foster parent was committed to earning her trust. It took another week for Dubai to feel safe enough to accomplish the simplest tasks like wearing a leash, walking out the door or feeling grass beneath her paws. By the eighth day in her foster home, Dubai cautiously crept up onto the bed and gently licked at her foster mom’s hand as if to say, “I think I’m ready to be loved.” As Dubai bravely accepted the soft petting under her chin, she seemed to realize that the worst was behind her and a new chapter was finally unfolding.
Today, Dubai has two canine siblings to play with, a 5-year-old boy she's deeply bonded to, and a family who cherishes every moment they spend with her. Intuitive and intelligent, Dubai will hop into their laps when she knows they need cheering up; despite her past, she's the most loving dog they've ever known.
When she was just two months old, police received a complaint about a man beating a dog. When they arrived on the scene, a crowd had gathered around a tiny, white puppy who was barely breathing. The group had intervened to protect her, but the man ran off, leaving Dumpling on the sidewalk, her brain beginning to swell from the impact. Thankfully, she was brought to the Wisconsin Humane Society and would never have to feel such pain and fear again. Aside from temporary hearing loss, the condition of her brain stabilized and Dumpling recovered wonderfully. A few weeks later, she found a loving home with Sharon and her family, who ensure that Dumpling feels nothing but loved and cherished each day.
When a shelter in northern Wisconsin asked us to take in a cat who had a badly broken leg, we were glad to help out. The poor guy had stabilized, but he needed more veterinary care and surgery to ensure a healthy future. No one knew what caused the injury until our veterinary team gave him a full examination. To our horror, we discovered that Winston had been shot and the bullet completely shattered his front right leg beyond repair. After amputation, Winston recovered so quickly that he was ready for adoption just three weeks after his arrival! This brave, strong boy now spends his days lounging in the comfort of a loving home, thanks to the generosity of donors like you.
