This Giving Tuesday we are raising money to help pay for all the addition medical costs we have accrued this year and prepare us for more animals in need at Humane Society of Sheboygan County (HSSC). Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. This Giving Tuesday, donations are being MATCHED up to $20,000 to support emergency medical care for animals at HSSC! That is HUGE! A special thank you to our matching gift donors to help us turn $20,000 into $40,000.
This past year we have had an increase of over 131% in pet surrenders. The animals coming in as surrenders and strays have had significant medical needs, such as broken limbs, logged bullets, eye injuries, heartworm, ringworm, undiagnosed diabetes, and skin allergies. This year, our daily average of pets in our care increased from 255 to 300. Dr. Saunders, our only vet and her staff of three have performed over 2,300 surgeries this year. They have succesfully treated 5 dogs this year alone that came in as strays and surrenders with heartworm.
The Humane Society of Sheboygan County is a non-profit 501(c)3 humane organization. HSSC is a private organization founded in 1964 and not funded by tax dollars; our funding comes from donations, bequests, grants, services, adoptions and fundraising efforts. HSSC is a No Kill, open admission shelter, meaning no Sheboygan County animal is turned away; we accept stray, surrendered, abused and neglected animals in Sheboygan County. Our mission: the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals & the extension of humane education.
