Pet and Animal Rescue Groups in Wisconsin

There are many reasons why a rescue group is important to a community. They help take care of the feral cat population by capturing, spaying and neutering them and the releasing them back to their colony. Feral cats do not make good pets. Most of them have been wild all their lives and do not know how to live with humans. Every day, more animals are put to sleep in America than human babies are born. By offering low cost spay/neuter programs these rescue groups help control the pet overpopulation problem. If they are in rural areas, many of them rescue horses from auctions that would send them to slaughter houses to be made into pet or yes even human food.

These organizations are private, tax exempt organizations. Any adoption fees or donations are tax deductible. If you need to get rid of a pet, do not just let it go. Bring it to a shelter or rescue group and let it find a new family. They are always in need of donations and not only money. Check out the want lists on the sites. Many of them can use old blankets and other items that you might not need and are looking to get rid of. They can get a donation if you donate a used car in their name. They hold bottle drives and make good use of the deposit money they get back. They get paid for used cell phones and used printer cartridges. They get what they need and you get a tax donation. It is a win, win situation. If you can donate just an hour or two a week, become a volunteer. Many of the groups and shelters have special programs for children to become volunteers. It is a great learning experience. Become a foster family for an animal while they are waiting for a permanent home. Shop in their on line stores. They have very nice gifts for that animal lover in your life. Participate in their fund raisers. Many of the shelters have interesting things going on like, tag sales, raffles etc. Many of them operate thrift shops. They are always looking for used clothing and other items that are in good condition to see there. Maybe you are looking for something. Give their thrift shops a try. You never know what you may find. Everything goes to the animals. Maybe you are looking to go out for a dinner. Did you know that many of these organizations have fund-raising dinner and some of them have local restaurants that will donate a portion of a day’s receipts to a local shelter? So contact your local center and see what special things they have going on
