Memorials & Honorary Gifts

Honor a friend or celebrate the memory of a loved one by making a contribution in their name to the Wisconsin Humane Society.


Customized Bricks

Bordering the walkways of the main entrances at our Milwaukee, Ozaukee, and Racine Campuses are personalized bricks featuring tributes to well-loved people and animals. The bricks provide a great opportunity to honor or memorialize a family member, friend, or animal companion while supporting the lifesaving work of WHS. Bricks come in two sizes:

  • A gift of $250.00 will fund a 4" x 8" personalized brick, and
  • A gift of $500.00 will fund an 8" x 8" personalized brick.

To fill out a brick order form, click here. After you have submitted your completed form, you will be contacted by the WHS Development Department for us to retrieve payment and to review the order form. You may also call us directly at (414) 431-6270 to order a brick or to have your questions answered! 


Animal Memorial Pages

These memorial pages celebrate the joy, love and meaning that companion animals bring to our lives.

The Wisconsin Humane Society offers these custom-created webpages to serve as memorials for our companions. For each $50 donation, we showcase honorees on a webpage with your text and up to five photos. Each page will stay on our website for one year from the date it is published. Because these are custom-created, we will need 2-3 business days to complete each page.

We also offer a permanent resting place for your companion animals. Find out more about purchasing a niche in Lorraine's Garden at the Wisconsin Humane Society.

Volunteers Needed

We are currently in high need of foster parents to care for either dogs or cats ranging in age and condition.  All you need is a little extra room in your home and heart!
