Companionship, friendship, loyalty and … unconditional love. These are all things we think of when it comes to our pets. In good times and bad, our pets have been there. They are an important part of our families. But, some animals are not so fortunate. Lost, abused, injured or turned loose because they are simply unwanted, they need your help.  Why not remember those animals with a gift to the Elmbrook Humane Society? Our shelter relies on private contributions to fund our programs and services and provide a means for caring for homeless animals. Your gift will help unfortunate animals get back on their paws and into loving homes. Making a donation to the shelter is easy and every dollar we receive truly counts!  And you can be assured that your gift is maximized to its fullest potential as our organization has received a four star rating from Charity Navigator, the highest rating possible.
