Spotlight on Rock County Humane Society


As heartbreaking as it is for any animal lover to see a pet without a loving home and family,  Rock County Humane Society knows that homeless pets are, unfortunately, a reality.  Since 1910, RCHS has been making the transition from homelessness to loving home easier on both the animals and the selfless families willing to take them in.

Rock County Humane Society is not just a boarding facility for needy animals.  Everything from education to microchipping to spaying and neutering are part of the services that RCHS provides.  Their website contains a plethora of information and some pretty handy tools.  The Lost Pet Search links families who have lost a pet to a database covering most municipalities in Rock County.  Simply enter your pet's vital information to see if  he or she has been entered into the database.  The Lost Pet Search is not to be confused with another outstanding tool provided by RCHS, the Adoptable Animal Search.  By simply entering the type of animal you're looking to adopt, along with things like breed and gender, you'll quickly be on the way to giving the pet of your choice a forever home.

Rock County Humane Society is completely funded using donations and without government assistance.   A popular fundraiser, the Photo Calendar, is currently taking place.  To find out more, or to upload a photo of your pet to the Photo Contest, visit the 1st Annual "Make Your Pet a PIN-UP" Contest Page.   RCHS has also offered a discounted rate of $12 to Email Contact Spotlight readers who would like to pre-order the 2012 Pet Photo Calendar.  All proceeds benefit RCHS, and further the cause of finding a safe and loving home for every adoptable animal and humane treatment for all.

RCHS uses Email Contact to send monthly newsletters to their supporters, keeping them informed of important dates - shelter events, fundraisers and promotions - and new adoptable animals.  A separate newsletter goes out to volunteers.  RCHS also utilizes postcards to send out quick updates between newsletters if something special is happening.

To learn more about RCHS and to stay up to date on new adoptable animals, visit their website or "like" them on Facebook.
