Every year, hundreds of needy cats and dogs find their way to the Door County Humane Society. The most recent is our sweet black and yellow "bumblebee" Sheila. At the shelter, each one receives the most comprehensive and compassionate care we can give. At times it is a heart-wrenching job, yet it is also one filled with countless moments of joy and delight as we watch our animals find physical and emotional healing, and loving forever homes.
2015 is a year of big dreams and big action for DCHS and YOU can be a part of it! For the first time ever we are competing in the 2015 Saving Pets Challenge! Every penny we raise will go directly to the care of our cats and dogs, but it gets better. The five organizations that raise the most during the challenge will each receive bonus prizes--including a top prize of $50,000, and YOU can get us there.
With your support we will:
- Ensure continued core operations. This means: spay/neuter, vaccinations, worming/flea/tick treatment, and microchipping for every adoptable animal; a dedicated staff that cares for the animals 365 days a year; and a clean and beautiful facility for our animals and our visitors.
- Partner with local vets to offer three low-cost spay/neuter clinics for outdoor cats in Door County--a first for DCHS.
- Begin to equip our vet room to offer more and better on-site medical care to our animals.
- Build outdoor enclosures so in the brief months of warm weather in Door County, our cats can feel the grass under their feet and the sun on their faces.
- Expand community outreach with a greater variety of programs and activities across the peninsula for animals lovers of all ages.
Together we can make the world a safe, healthy and loving place for the homeless cats and dogs of Door County. This is an exciting opportunity for DCHS, and with your support we can win this thing—and that would mean a $50,000 bonus prize for DCHS! So donate, spread the word, and let’s make this the best year yet for Door County Humane Society and all our precious animals!
