Friends Of Ferals Adoption Day

MadCat Pet Supplies
7820 Mineral Point Rd.,
Madison, WI  

Volunteers from Friends Of Ferals will be on hand with adoptable animals and information on how to get involved. We have feral cats available for adoption to outdoor rural homes. Typically these cats are semi-feral or have behavioral issues such as biting or marking that make them unsuitable as pets. Although these cats would not be suitable as indoor pets they deserve to live a long life.

We adopt our feral cats to owners who will provide food, water and shelter from inclement weather. In return, the cats will keep the rodent population under control by becoming 'mousers'.    http://www.daneferals.org/

The Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project

The Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project is a 501(c)3 registered non-profit organization .

Amazing Eileen Ribbens is the Executive Director, Founder.

Our goal is to offer a valuable educational resouce for:

-those seeking to end the institutionalized form of animal cruelty known as "puppy mills"
-those looking for ways to fight abuse in their own neighborhoods
those wishing to add a healthy, loving, animal companion to their families

Members of our group started working to alleviate the suffering of mill dogs in 1999 and officially organized as the Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project, Inc., in 2004. Our mission is to educate the public about puppy mills, to prevent cruelty to animals, to foster understanding of responsible pet acquisition and ownership, and to promote adoption of homeless companion animals. Dedicated to Mr. Peabody. Read his story. Visit  http://www.nowisconsinpuppymills.com/

Oshkosh Area Humane Society
& Shelter from the Storm Spay Neuter

Oshkosh Humane Society
1925 Shelter Court
Oshkosh, WI 54901

The Oshkosh Area Humane Society is very excited about its partnership with Shelter from the Storm Animal Rescue, a Madison based non-profit offering low cost spay neuter surgeries. OAHS will be a drop-off location for people in the Oshkosh area utilizing the services of Shelter from the Storm.  Shelter from the Storm comes to OAHS to pick up pets scheduled in advance for surgery on a specific day, takes them back to the Madison clinic, performs surgeries the next day and then brings pets back to OAHS to be returned to their owners.

This program benefits people and their pets and OAHS. For the owners, they will have a pet that is easier to train, less likely to roam and get into fights with other animals. The animals themselves will be less likely to develop certain kinds of cancer and live happier and healthier lives. The payoff for OAHS is fewer unwanted births resulting in fewer unwanted animals coming into OAHS and other shelters.

Persons wishing to take advantage of the low cost spay/neuter and transport service need to call ahead to set up an appointment at 920-424-2128 or email spaymeoahs@hotmail.com

Join us in celebrating our 23rd Anniversary!
Earthfest 2013 - “Just Like Starting Over”

from Friday through Sunday Fountain Park, Sheboygan Since 1990, Earthfest's mission is to provide a joyful, annual, free family festival in Sheboygan to promote community spirit,  healthy environment through music, art,education, lectures, stories, demonstrations and local foods.

We still offer free admission, and now work in conjunction with Sheboygan’s farmer’s market. Earthfest continues to be alcohol-free, making it a safe and fun place to bring the whole family.

In 2012, Earthfest teamed up with SLG – The Sustainable Living Group – of Sheboygan County. By combining our resources, we plan to get more community businesses involved that have energy efficient, renewable energy or sustainable living products and technologies. This partnership has also allowed the festival to obtain a non-profit 501c3 status.

Please visit our website for more info, as well as event times:
The proceeds from this all-volunteer event are donated to local environmental and peace organizations, and are also used to keep the festival self-sustaining. Fountain Park, Sheboygan WI. http://www.earthfestsheboygan.org/

CUFA monthly meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month at 6:00pm at the Outpost Coop at 100 E. Capital Drive, Milwaukee.

It is at these meetings that current legislations, pending campaigns, upcoming events, and other business are discussed. Decisions are made as to how the membership can best work toward eliminating abuse.

A Prayer for the Animals

~An official Wisconsin Week for the Animals event~

Join all of us who would like to observe a moment of prayer for the precious animals. We are requesting prayers from 5-6 pm central time on Sunday August 19th, 2012.  This is an observance for everyone.

Wherever you are, if you can observe a moment for the animals who need us...that collective energy will surely grow and bring light to our cause to love, assist and help them from any and all suffering.
