Paws and Claws Week


Join us online for Paws & Claws Week October 12-17!
As you can imagine, our gala is going virtual this year in an effort to ensure everyone’s safety. This is one of the largest fundraisers of the year for WHS, and going virtual in 2020 does not change the impact this event can have on animals in our community. We're counting on our supporters now more than ever to provide critical services to animals and the people who love them.

Donations Matched To Support WHS Foster Animals

Join us for Paws & Claws Week as we unite online to support local animals and the people who love them. This year, we are focusing on raising funds for a program that has always been important, but quickly became the backbone of our lifesaving efforts during the pandemic: foster care.

This year, *one third* of the animals adopted from WHS spent time in foster care - the highest rate we've ever seen - thanks in no small part to the more than 1,000 families who have volunteered to open their homes and hearts to animals when they need it most.

Animals go into foster care for a wide variety of reasons. Your donation to the Rachael Ray Nutrish Foster Program at the Wisconsin Humane Society ensure that we're always able to care for animals when they need it most. You can make a donation online here today to support our foster program, and it will automatically be MATCHED by our amazing friends Bridget & Mark Kirkish, Northwestern Mutual and the Robertson Family.
