WHS Holiday Gift Guide 2020!

This has certainly been a unique year for everyone and the Wisconsin Humane Society is no exception.  The COVID-19 pandemic has limited our on-site services, including the ability to shop in-store for your holiday gifts.  But there's good news...

You can still support WHS from homewhile completing your holiday shopping!  Our online store at shop.wihumane.org has thousands of items all ready to be shipped to you or someone on your list, and all proceeds go right back to supporting the animals in our care.

Need some inspiration?  Here is our guide to some of our most popular options to get you started!

1. Wisconsin Humane Society 2021 Calendar

Everyone is a winner in the annual WHS Calendar Contest. Hundreds of photos are submitted and voted on by WHS supporters, with the top photos being featured each month. No one misses out, though - every qualifying photo is included in the calendar!

Purchase one for yourself and more for your friends, family, and coworkers.

2. Holiday Mystery Boxes

Need to send the pets on your holiday shopping list a fun gift, but not sure where to start? The WHS Holiday Mystery Box may be the perfect fit! 

Each box will contain 4-5 unique items for your choice of dogs or cats, with a combined retail value of at least $30 - toys, treats, accessories and more!  If you order multiple boxes in one transaction, we will do our best to make each different.


3. Shop our 'Holiday Favorites' Collection

With treats, toys, food and more, there are great holiday-themed gift ideas in this collection.  Stuff your furry friend's stocking with a new toy or two, or make sure they have a pet-safe holiday dinner!

4. WHS Apparel from Ink to the People

We've partnered with our friends at Ink to the People to offer a variety of t-shirts, hoodies, and even face masks!  Each item is made to order and then shipped directly, and proceeds from every sale benefit WHS.

5. Donate items from our online store

As a non-profit organization, we rely on community support and we are tremendously grateful for in-kind donations as they allow us to better focus our limited funds on supporting the animals in our care. Our online store allows donors to purchase items for donation direct to WHS, with no trips to the pet store needed!


6. Shop our 'Unique Cat Gifts' Collection

Cats can be picky about their favorite things, but we offer a wide variety of unique options sure to cater to even the most finicky feline.  Luxurious loungers, fun furniture, tasty treats and much, much more!

7. Give a Wisconsin Humane Society Gift Certificate

If you know someone who is planning on adopting a new friend from WHS, consider giving a WHS gift certificate!  These certificates can be used by the bearer to cover any Wisconsin Humane Society adoption or service fees, or for merchandise and supplies in our physical store locations.

8. Shop our 'Unique Dog Gifts' Collection

What do you get for the dog who has everything?  One of these unique items may just fit the bill.  From tried-and-true WHS favorites like Gorilla Chews and The Walkie to brand-new options like super-premium beds, there's a gift for every good dog.


9. Shop our 'Keep Calm and Carry On' Collection

The holidays can be a stressful time for our pets, so this collection of treats, supplements, beds and more can help provide some relief from all the hustle and bustle.  You can also read more tips about keeping pets safe here.

10. Donate to our Hope's Lights Campaign

Giving hope is an essential part of what our community does - together. Hope propels us forward, in an effort to create a safer, more humane future for all of us, animals and people alike. We couldn’t do it without you.

Please help us kick off the season of giving with a gift to Hope's Lights. You can purchase a light in honor or memory of a beloved companion animal, person, or even a wild animal.


Thank you for your support of WHS, and we all wish you and yours a happy and safe holiday season!
