It's that time again - "Pins for Pets" at Northwoods Lane & Lounge. We've added an extra aspect to this year's event - "Mardi Paws"! Dress up Mardi Gras style and receive a free raffle ticket or just come as you are. We look forward to seeing everyone again this year as we hold one of our favorite fundraisers for the animal shelter. As always, proceeds will go to help WCAHS care for our abandoned, surrendered, and stray animals until we can find them their new forever home! See you at the lanes!
SPAY/NEUTER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM - "SNAP"
WCAHS has a "SNAP" program, available to those who need assistance with the cost of spaying or neutering their pet. We will be using our "Thomas Fund" established by one of our members in memory of her beloved cat, Thomas, plus money that donors have designated for our SNAP fund. The "SNAP" program allows you to use the veterinarian of your choice.
We are currently able to offer a $50 discount towards each surgery to those who qualify, while the funds last.
To download an application, go to the "About - Services" section of this website or call 715-635-4720 for more information.
UPDATE ON KURANDA BED DONATIONS
Thank you to the people who have already ordered Kuranda Beds!!!! The dogs love the beds which help to make the animals more comfortable while waiting for their new forever homes!!!!
Many people have been asking about our needs so we thought we would create an Amazon Wish List. We put together a list of everyday needs and tried to make it easy for those who would like to help out by giving a wide range of options. Items can be shipping directly to the shelter. There is an address on file with the list when you check out.
THANK YOU to all of you for always being so supportive.
Click on the Amazon wish list logo above to go to our wish list.
