Each year, nearly 7,000 animals including common and exotic pets, injured wildlife, and farm animals receive care and shelter from Dane County Humane Society (DCHS). The nonprofit organization accepts all creatures regardless of age or health condition, and volunteers help to feed, entertain, exercise, and clean boarded animals.
DCHS ensures the comfort and good health of its visitors by providing food, proper bedding, medical care, behavioral training, and exercise. The cost of properly feeding and boarding animals for one day averages $10 per guest, and DCHS draws 85% of its funds for sheltering animals from private donations. Last year, it cost the organization more than $2.77 million to feed and shelter Dane County's strays.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Dane County Humane Society provide shelter to animals in need. If G-Team members raise $400, then DCHS can provide food and bedding to 40 animals for one day. Each additional $10 provides a day's worth of food and shelter 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.
