As an independent, nonprofit animal shelter, 100% of your charitable gift will directly benefit the animals at the Humane Society. Rest assured that every dollar is wisely used in the best interest of the animals, and will enable us to provide the shelter and veterinary care they need until we can find them a home.

You can make a difference in the life of an animal each month of the year by becoming a Constant Companion.

Our Constant Companions are a dedicated group of animal lovers and advocates of the Humane Society of Sheboygan County who support us and help save the lives of pets in our community through monthly donations.

Monthly giving is an incredibly efficient way to help sustain the Humane Society of Sheboygan County and provide us with a consistent and reliable income stream. It costs an average of $800+ to care for each pet who enters our shelter, and support at this level makes it possible for us to rescue, heal, adopt, and advocate for sick, injured and abused pets.

Wish List

Help us raise money for companion animals, while helping the environment! Drop off your aluminum cans or other similar recyclable items directly at HSSC.  The donation bin is located on the north-west corner of the building.

There is also a drop off site at Sadoff Iron & Metal in Sheboygan and  The Wreath Factory of Plymouth.

Donate your vehicle for animals in need! Proceeds from your vehicle will directly benefit SCHS. Donations are 100% tax deductible and the process is free, easy, and fast.

Wish List 2023

A great way to give back to HSSC is to donate your time. The shelter is always looking for volunteers to help with administrative work around the office to taking care of our animals.

Volunteer Opportunities

When you make a donation in memory of a pet or person, you are helping ensure that thousands of other animals will find loving homes and families of their own. Thank you for giving your pet a wonderful life, and supporting a second chance for animals in need.
