The Clark County Humane Society (CCHS) is a very special place. We have been in the life-saving business for 28 years and have placed countless thousands of pets into loving homes. We are not government-funded. There are no giant corporations or independently wealthy individuals in this area. This Shelter was built and is operated by a real grassroots effort. We raise all of our own money from people who care and believe in our mission of mercy and love.
Please go to the CCHS Website to see our rich history of helping. There you will see that we were on the frontlines in the battle against puppy mills. We helped to rid the State of its only dog auction, a place where puppy mill breeders auctioned off their “non-productive stock”. We also played an instrumental role in producing the legislation that finally required licensing and inspection of puppy mills.
CCHS also pioneered the communal cat room concept. Our Kitty City is a huge room stuffed full of freestanding cat climber furniture, a living room area (complete with fireplace, couch, chairs, rug and their very own HDTV featuring mice, bird and fish videos). We also live-stream video of the activity in the room, for much of the day, to a worldwide audience.
CCHS is built from top to bottom with the animals in mind. We have large outdoor running pens for the dogs, where they can just “let loose” their stored up energy. They have heated floors inside, air-conditioning, raised beds and music.
Follow our stories and watch the activities every day by becoming a fan of the CCHS facebook page. Celebrate the adoptions, the stories of lost pets reunited with grateful owners, the rescues of puppy mill dogs and animals from hoarding situations. Come along as we make happy endings for each of the pets in our care. Wherever you are from, you can be a part of this wonderful group of compassionate people.
We try our very best to make life as good as it can be for all of the pets at the Shelter. We always say “If they can’t be home, we want CCHS to be the next best place”.
We started FixaPet, one of the very first low-cost spay/neuter programs in Wisconsin. We opened up that service for the pets of “anyone from anywhere” and have far exceeded our most optimistic goals. As a matter of fact, demand for that service now exceeds our ability to meet it. We have spent years preaching the benefits of spaying/neutering pets and have gradually won over the resistance often found in the rural, less-populated areas of the State.
Now we feel that we must expand this program in an effort to meet that demand. It is a shame that we are unable to spay/neuter thousands of pets for people that are willing to have it done. We currently have a waiting time of 4 months for appointments. That is unacceptable. It is also the reason that we are going to construct our own massive spay/neuter clinic. We are going to raise the money to do the project in stages. The first stage goal is $100,000. With this new facility we will be able to keep up with the demand for spay/neuter services and it will allow us to greatly reduce the numbers of unwanted, unplanned kittens and puppies from being born.
For years we have relied on small donations from a lot of people. CCHS was built with donations of $10 and $20 at a time. Please contribute. Every $10 helps us get one step closer to building the clinic. Help us expand our services to everyone who needs them. Join us on this journey of caring.
