Wisconsin Humane Society donations doubled to $270,000 in August

In August, every dollar donated to the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) will be doubled up to $270,000!

This is WHS’ biggest campaign of the year, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Summer is peak season at WHS, and many animals in the community are in dire need of shelter, medical care, behavioral support, and a new family to cherish them.

Donations made to the Green Bay and Door County campuses will be generously matched by Virginia Kress, the George Kress Family Foundation and Stone’s Throw Winery.

Donations to Campus Racine will be kindly matched by the Ruud Family Foundation and Ted Sokoly & Nancy Toll. A wonderful group of donors will match all donations made to the Milwaukee and Ozaukee campuses – the Nicholas Family Foundation, Judith Ford, Patricia Bachhuber, Kathleen Ryan, Patti & Jack McKeithan Northwoods Fund, Nancy Behrens, who donated in l honor of Aggie & Gracie; and a gift in memory of Dian Gabriel. You can double your impact for animals in need with this dollar-for-dollar match!

That means:

  • $30 will become $60 to provide training for dogs with special behavioral needs.
  • $50 will become $100 to help neuter animals so they can be adopted and get the second chance they deserve.
  • $100 will become $200 to help rescued animals receive emergency surgery, medical treatment and behavioral support.

Because WHS does not receive general government funding and is not part of any national umbrella group, the local nonprofit depends on the generosity of the community to serve 40,000 animals and their families each year.
