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!
The Wisconsin Humane Society needs a new dental machine to continue providing top-notch dental care to the shelter's animal guests, and we hope you will help.
It doesn't sound very exciting, but consider this: in just a few months in 2008, our dental machine was used in over 1,000 dental procedures for neglected dogs we took in that summer. That was a lot of wear and tear on a machine that is typically used in 1,000 procedures in an entire year.
The new machine we want to purchase is called a Dentalaire UDS Ultimate Mobile Veterinary Dental Station (mfr # DTP00509). It will allow us to provide better and more efficient dental cleanings, ensuring important care and gleaming smiles for our adoptable animals.
The machine will cost us $4,368. Even a $10 donation will help us get there! Make a donation.
