Congratulations to our May Calendar Photo Contest Winners!
Bubber loves his dry food and will constantly beg for treats. You can quickly convince him otherwise if you rub his belly. Bubber took on a father’s role while we had our daughter’s kitten, Luma. He was so patient and understanding, and taught her all the cat things he could!

Ellie was adopted from WCAHS in 2019. She was found on the highway in January. She is a silly little girl who just wanted to be loved. Ellie won the Pet Calendar “Cutest Dog” award in 2021.

WE'RE READY FOR VOLUNTEERS AND VISITORS!
The shelter will be open for volunteers and visitors by appointment only. You must call or message our Facebook page to see what we have available and then we can make an appointment for you to come in and volunteer or visit with the animals. NO WALK INS.
KITTENS CONTINUE TO COME INTO THE SHELTER - FOSTERS NEEDED
**Because we provide all the litter and food for the fosters, we go through a lot of those supplies - quickly. We are in need of moist kitten food (Fancy Feast); hard kitten food (Purina One Kitten or Purina Kitten Chow), and non-clumping cat litter for kittens.**
Please note that cat and dog surrenders are by appointment only. Please contact the shelter at 715.635.4720 to schedule an appointment.
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.
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.
The wonderful photos of the adoptable pets you see on this site are provided by our volunteer photographer - June Theisse. June does a great job capturing the unique personality of each animal.
