HSSC Reaches Halfway Point in Capital Campaign

Sheboygan – the Humane Society of Sheboygan County reaches halfway point in Capital Campaign for construction of new building.

The Humane Society of Sheboygan County (HSSC) is over halfway to raising the $4 million toward the construction of a new facility. This is the first time in 55 years the Humane Society has initiated a Capital Campaign. While many may use the halfway mark as a resting point, the HSSC team and their supporters roar full steam ahead towards the finish line.

The Humane Society of Sheboygan County is calling on every community member who can give something. “It is just as important now as ever that we have the full support of our community,” says Andrew Viglietti, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Sheboygan County. “With so many ways to contribute and such a supportive community, we know that we can reach our goal.”

The current shelter at 3107 N 20th street was built in 1964. It has served its’ purpose but outgrown its’ efficiency. It is too small to handle the 3,000 animals that come through the doors annually.  HSSC is a nonprofit organization, not supported by local or state tax dollars.

The new building will be built on adjacent property that was donated by the Muth family. In addition to providing adequate space for the animals, it will provide so much more for the community. It will include a surgical suite that will allow the Humane Society to make a greater impact through increased spay and neuter services, an increased Trap Neuter Return program, as well as taking care of the numerous daily surgical needs. The new shelter will have a more efficient flow for employees and volunteers, creating a better work environment, starting with visibility on a major road, and continuing inside with quieter, more intimate animal rooms.

The new building will have a retail store that will allow adopting families to meet all the needs of its’ newest member and finally, it will have a community room that will allow more people to experience the Humane Society. The community room will be a place to hold meetings and other gatherings.

The organization has made numerous strides towards the end goal in the past year, holding multiple fundraising events. The goal now is to raise the remaining $2 million to break ground by the end of summer 2019.

Steven Schmitt, President of the Board of Directors, said “Sheboygan County is such an incredible community when it comes to charitable causes. We ask Sheboygan County to once again step up and make a difference. A viable and efficient Humane Society will be a great piece of what makes Sheboygan County special.”  The goal for the campaign is $4 million, with over 50% raised. We need your help to reach our goal.
