Shelter from the Storm

When Shelter from the Storm Animal Rescue (SFTS) formed in 2005, its founder’s goal was to help reduce pet overpopulation and euthanasia in area shelters by finding good homes for rescued dogs and cats. SFTS does this by rescuing dogs and cats at the local shelter and providing veterinary care at their clinic, Wisconsin Community Veterinary Center (WCVC). The clinic allows SFTS to take in animals that other humane organizations may not be equipped to care for, including senior pets, dogs and cats with ongoing medical conditions, and injured animals. WCVC is open to the public and other humane organizations, offering spay/neuter for owned pets, services for outdoor cats, a primary care and wellness program, specialty surgeries, dental services, and emergency care. 

Funded from 2018 to 2020 and 2022
How we help: 

Funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization will allow Shelter from the Storm to increase the number of senior dogs receiving veterinary care and reduce the number of senior dogs surrendered. This two-pronged approach will: 1) help senior dogs like sweet senior Smooshie get adoption-ready and 2) support senior dogs in underserved communities to get needed veterinary services their guardians could not otherwise afford. The grant will ensure senior dogs receive the comprehensive medical and dental care they need to live happy, healthy lives.
