WISCONSIN – In August, every single dollar donated to the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) will be matched up to $250,000!

Donations made to the Green Bay and Door County Campuses will be generously matched by the George Kress Family Foundation. Gifts designated for the WHS Racine Campuses will be kindly doubled by the Ruud Family Foundation and Ted Sokoly. A wonderful group of donors will be matching all gifts made to the Milwaukee and Ozaukee Campuses: Patricia Bachhuber, the Kopmeier Family Fund, Scott Mayer, the Nicholas Family Foundation, Kathleen Ryan, and Nancy Behrens.

You can double your impact for animals in need with this dollar-for-dollar match! That means…

  • $30 will become $60 to provide training for dogs with special behavior needs.
  • $50 will become $100 to help spay or neuter animals so they can be adopted and given the second chance they deserve.
  • $100 will become $200 to help rescued animals receive emergency surgery, medical treatment, and behavioral support.

“Since the pandemic began, our staff have worked every single day to serve animals and families in need, and our busiest season has just begun,” said Angela Speed, vice president of communications at WHS. “Donations typically slow down in the summer, so this opportunity couldn’t come at a better time.”

As WHS doesn’t receive general government funding and is not part of any national umbrella group, the local nonprofit depends the generosity of the community to annually serve 40,000 animals and their families.

If you are able to make a gift and double your impact for animals in need, simply go to www.wihumane.org/summermatch.
