Because of generous donors, we are able to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome thousands of animals every year. You can make a difference for animals in our community! We receive no government funding and are not affiliated with any national animal welfare organizations. Donations are tax-deductible.

On the online donation form, you have the option to designate your donation for our Milwaukee, Ozaukee or Racine Campuses, or to our general fund or Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. Our SECURE online donation form makes it easy to offer much appreciated support right now. If you prefer, you can mail your donation to the following address:

Wisconsin Humane Society
Attn: Development Department

Does your company participate in United Way or Community Shares?

If your employer participates in a United Way or Community Shares workplace giving campaign, you can support Wisconsin Humane Society through simple payroll deduction! WHS is proud to be a Community Shares Member Organization, and though we are not listed as a United Way agency, you may select “Donors Choice” and designate your dollars by writing in “Wisconsin Humane Society” on your pledge form.

Work For a Government Agency? If so, you may be able to give to WHS through payroll deduction in your Combined Giving Campaign. Encourage your co-workers to designate their pledge to WHS, too  -  often, the biggest reason people don’t give is that they aren’t asked. Find our organization information easily by looking under the “Community Shares” umbrella in the pledge brochure. Thank you!
