The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness. For more than 128 years, WHS has been saving the lives of animals in need. We offer adoption services that place 9,000 animals in new homes annually, veterinary services that save thousands of lives, educational programs that instill respect for animals, behavior services to assist guardians and a myriad of other initiatives that help end suffering for animals. We depend entirely on private donations to fund our programs and rely on volunteers in nearly every department. If you are interested in adopting, volunteering, enrolling in a class, taking a tour or making a donation, check out our comprehensive web site at wihumane.org. The adoptable animals' web pages are updated every 30 minutes!
Cruise on down to Pier Wisconsin for a lovely evening of good cheer and good deeds for our four-legged friends. Benefiting the Wisconsin and Ozaukee Humane Societies, the Paws & Claws Gala will be held on Saturday, September 20, 2008.
Emceed by The Biggest Name in Milwaukee Radio, Phil Cianciola from 620 WTMJ, the annual fundraiser for the Wisconsin Humane Society boasts an impressive array of silent and live auction items, Bartolotta’s finest fare and live music. You’ll meet cats in ball gowns and dogs in tuxedos! There’s even a raffle and the top prize is sensational!
Although Brodhi, above, is enjoying his ride, we bet you’ll have even more fun on this 105th Anniversary Harley Dyna Low Rider. Not only is it stunning, it promises a little piece of heaven as you leave your cares behind and head out on the open road. You’ll be the envy of all your neighbors. You might even be able to charge admission to your garage. And the raffle ticket is only $5.
Gala tickets are still available. Treat yourself to a doggone good time.
