The Wisconsin Humane Society’s Pets for Life program reaches animals and families in underserved Milwaukee neighborhoods with little to no access to pet care resources. We build a consistent community presence and relationships through door-to-door outreach, provide free pet care services, and remove barriers like transportation and cost so families can provide important care to the animals they love.
Our Pets for Life program serves people and animals in Milwaukee’s 53206 and 53205 zip codes and Amani, Franklin Heights, Halyard Park, Harambee, Metcalfe Park, Midtown, and Walnut Hill neighborhoods through door-to-door outreach. Families in this community face many barriers to accessing important services for the animals they love. Our focus community does not have a single veterinary clinic, and just 9% of the animals whom we initially met were spayed or neutered. Our Pets for Life team provides free spay/neuter surgery, vaccines, and other resources to animals in the community and builds trust and relationships with community members.
The program seeks to meet the community where they are, rather than waiting for them to come to us. This approach reaches those in our community who have the least access to information and services, improving quality of life for both animals and families.
