The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness. For more than 128 years, WHS has been saving the lives of animals in need. We offer adoption services that place 9,000 animals in new homes annually, veterinary services that save thousands of lives, educational programs that instill respect for animals, behavior services to assist guardians and a myriad of other initiatives that help end suffering for animals. We depend entirely on private donations to fund our programs and rely on volunteers in nearly every department. If you are interested in adopting, volunteering, enrolling in a class, taking a tour or making a donation, check out our comprehensive web site at wihumane.org. The adoptable animals' web pages are updated every 30 minutes!
Precious may dream of a new home for 2010, but first, her eye has to heal from an agonizing injury. How it happened, we may never know, but fortunately she was surrendered to the Wisconsin Humane Society.
When Precious arrived, her eye looked horrible. It was swollen and cloudy, and the veterinary staff couldn’t even see her iris. Sensitive to the terrible pain, she meowed loudly when our veterinarians gently examined her. They suspected that her injury was caused by blunt force trauma of some kind, but luckily, she survived. Precious is now quickly healing in our Intensive Care Unit at WHS and loves her plaid cat bed and glitter ball toys. Appropriately named, Precious is a very affectionate, curious cat.
This sweet girl is just one of many patients in the Intensive Care Unit at WHS, where animals recover from fractures, illnesses, specialized surgeries and traumatic abuse. These innocent animals depend entirely on the support of the community for their medical and behavioral care, as well as the adoption services that match them up with loving families when they are fully recuperated.
Will you donate to help pay for Precious’ care? You can even sponsor Precious in honor of a loved one this holiday season, and send a special card to share her story. WHS relies entirely on the community's support to care for animals like Precious and we deeply appreciate your support!
