Wisconsin Humane Society receives $75K grant from PetSmart Charities

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Humane Society announced it received a $75,000 grant from PetSmart Charities to help prepare more shelter pets for adoption and ensure they are ready to find loving homes. 

According to a news release, the funding will support veterinary medical care and services prior to adoption, which includes spay/neuter surgery for dogs and cats, core vaccinations, behavioral assessments, and microchips.

WHS says the funding helps to ensure that dogs like Rocky, a 135-pound dog available for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Milwaukee Campus, get the medical and behavioral support they need prior to finding a loving home.

“The Wisconsin Humane Society 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. “This grant helps us to continue to make that commitment to homeless animals in need of loving homes.”

“We’re proud to once again partner with the Wisconsin Humane Society to provide resources that bring homeless pets one step closer to finding loving homes,” said Heidi Fulcher, Adoptions Grant Manager at PetSmart Charities. “We would not be able to do this important work without the support of our generous donors.”
