In a Nutshell

Donations fund specialty and prescription food, shelter, and veterinary care for 30 animals

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to Dane County Humane Society. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Expense of Specialty Food for Animals

In 2011, Dane County Humane Society (DCHS) spent more than $2.98 million to care for stray and surrendered animals. Though DCHS receives dry dog food donations from Mounds Pet Food Warehouse, it needs canned, specialty, and prescription food to ensure each animal gets an appropriate diet.

The Campaign: Funding Food and Shelter for Animals

If 30 people donate $10, then DCHS can fund a day of shelter, food, and veterinary care for 30 animals. While at the shelter, animals receive appropriate food for their individual diets, as well as toys and bedding to keep them comfortable and happy. Each additional $10 will fund one day of shelter and care for another animal.

Dane County Humane Society

Founded in 1921, Dane County Humane Society (DCHS) is an open-admission shelter that cares for approximately 7,000 animals every year—including companion animals, exotic species, farm animals, and injured or orphaned wildlife. It accepts all animals regardless of age or health condition. In 2003, DCHS partnered with the University of Wisconsin's School of Veterinary Medicine to become the first organization to treat ringworm, an infectious disease once thought untreatable in animals, and has since saved the lives of more than 650 cats.

Every animal that enters DCHS’s facility receives necessary medical treatments. After being microchipped and evaluated for behavioral issues, companion animals are placed with permanent families. The organization also helps rehabilitate ill, injured, or orphaned wildlife through its Four Lakes Wildlife Center program. When not working directly with animals, DCHS advocates for humane animal laws and provides outreach programs to teach people about animal welfare.

I love the work DCHS does and would have donated regardless of the Groupon deal.
