Wisconsin Humane Society receives $50K grant to help prep animals for adoption

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Humane Society says they've received a $50,000 grant from Maddie's Fund, a national family foundation. 

They say the funding will support adoption preparation, including medical exams, behavioral assessments, spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, flea medication and microchipping. 

“WHS finds homes for more than 10,000 animals every year, and there are no time or space limits for any animals in our adoption program,” said Alison Kleibor, executive vice president. “Thanks to Maddie, this grant will ensure that animals receive expert care before they are ready for new loving homes.”

WHS says in 2021, 1,808 animals received extra behavior support, and 5,705 animals received medical treatment beyond standard spay/neuter surgery and routine vaccines.
