So Many Ways to Donate and Help Make a Difference For the Unending Amount of Furry Friends Who Come Through Our Door Every Year...


How can I help?


  1. By donating funds. This can be done through a simple donation, in honor of a friend or pet, or as a memorial, just to name a few options. We will send a card to thank the person the donation was made in honor of, just bring the address in with you when making the donation. Donations can also be mailed to our street address.

  2. By donating cat live traps, gloves or pill crushers. By donating items from our wish list, which can be seen or downloaded by clicking here.  

  3. By becoming a Member of the Shawano County Humane Society. Membership forms can be brought in to shelter or mailed to 1290 Jaycee Court, Shawano, WI 54166.
