TO THE INDIVIDUALS WHO STOLE THE BENCH in front of the shelter, you stole from the folks who give their time and resources to help keep the needy animals in our community safe and healthy until they can find their new home. We encourage you to do the right thing and return the bench, no questions asked.

COMMITTEE MEMBERS WANTED
The most effective animals shelters have a strong, enthusiastic, involved volunteer group. As this new year begins, those interested in being a part of WCAHS have an opportunity to help in a variety of ways, but right now Committee Members are wanted, especially with Fundraising and also with a Buildings and Grounds group. So many people have knowledge, time, and talent that could be so beneficial to the shelter. It would not be a demanding, time restrictive position to be in, just a helpful one.
To briefly explain, fundraising would not only be putting ideas together, but helping to coordinate the event and helping with it. Several of the fundraisers are well established but new ideas are always welcome. Fundraising is an necessary means of supporting the continued operation of the animal shelter.
Building and grounds would be helping with upkeep of both the building and the outdoor area, landscaping assistance, and possibly helping design/build the catio which is a project not completed at the time the building was opened, plus seeing other ideas which may be beneficial.
If you would like to be a part of a committee, please call 715-635-4720 or you may email firstname.lastname@example.org
You will be added to the list and then notified of a meeting time and place. Thank you.
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.

PET OF THE WEEK
I’m Atticus Kat, not Atticus Finch,
and I’d never hurt Mockingbirds;
I don’t know a woman named Harper Lee,
despite any “fake news” you’ve heard!
I’m Grandma’s senior kitty;
We shared a nice cozy home,
Until she couldn’t care for me,
so now I’m on my own;
A handsome black and white fellow,
my long fur was tangled with mats;
So now I’ve got the worst haircut
in the history of cats!
Since I’m a sponsored kitty,
my adoption’s totally free;
A charming boy, I need a new home
and yours would be purrfect for me!
Available for Adoption:
Many great cats!
F Aussie/ Heeler mix
M Hound mix
