The Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project

The Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project is a 501(c)3 registered non-profit organization . On December 1, 2009, our decade-long dream was realized when, with his signature, Governor Doyle turned AB-250, the Dog Breeders Licensure Bill, into the ground-breaking Commercial Dog Breeders Licensure Law! 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/

Find out the latest happenings at our shelter. Do you have a question or comment for the staff or Operation Committee? Are more lives being saved? Find out at these meetings.

Formed in the Fall of 2012, Milwaukee Animal Alliance (MAA) is a grassroots organization comprised of concerned citizens and dedicated animal welfare volunteers residing in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. We wholeheartedly believe that Milwaukee can save all of it’s homeless pets! Currently, more than 5,400 animals get put down in Milwaukee County every year.

That’s over 105 animals per week, all paid for by the taxpayers.  The average citizen is sadly unaware of that statistic. We believe that significantly lowering the 43% euthanasia rate in Milwaukee County is highly achievable by using methods proven to be successful in other U.S. cities nationwide. We also advocate for other issues facing companion animals in our area. http://www.milwaukeeanimalalliance.org/about-us/

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

To make your visit easier, fill out our Adopter Profile for dogs, cats, rabbits, barnyard animals or pocket pets now, so we can have it waiting when you get here! We do require a 24-hour wait period before an animal would be adopted into your home once you have submitted an adoption profile. If you have not submitted a profile prior to your visit, you will be asked to do so at your visit prior to matching you with an animal for potential adoption.

A Good Mix!

Citizens United for Animals, Inc.

CUFA
PO Box 170414
Milwaukee, WI 53217

Citizens United for Animals: Our primary goal is to bring attention to the systematic abuse of animals, both globally and locally, and the alarming extent of the problem. It is CUFA’s hope that those so enlightened will feel compelled to take a greater interest in the welfare of all creatures on this planet, work for improved lives for all species, and forgo those practices and possessions which necessitate the suffering and killing of defenseless animals.

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.

It is CUFA’s desire that each sentient being on this planet live out its life in a healthy, natural fashion; unimpeded by the tastes, greed, and wantonness of mankind.   Visit website at      https://www.facebook.com/CitizensUnitedForAnimals
