Furry Friend Food Program
health and emotional benefits of sharing your life
with an animal are enormous but the cost of providing
proper care for an animal can also be high, ranging
from $350-750 annually for each animal in a household.
WHS staff members have heard horror stories of people
having to choose between feeding themselves and
feeding their animals - because they couldn't afford
The Wisconsin Humane
Society believes that tight financial times should
not break the bonds of love and companionship between
people and their companion animals. The Wisconsin
Humane Society temporarily provides Furry Friend Food for individuals
from Milwaukee County and Ozaukee County who are struggling to provide food for their animals
and who demonstrate a financial need. This program
has helped many people keep their animals and provide
them with proper nutrition. For more information,
or to see if you qualify, please call 414-431-6263. You can also apply online, using our Furry Friend Food Application.
