Two cuties

Our organization saves abandoned cats and kittens, providing foster homes for them until they are adopted. Your part would be working at weekend events at our Verona Center. You will greet potential adopters, help maintain a clean, safe environment for the kittens, provide assistance with various cleaning chores such as laundry, dishes, stocking shelves, and so much more. The time spent interacting with these animals and their new families is so rewarding.

We are staffed by 100% volunteers who all love what they do. We are open only on weekends and offer various shifts to suit your schedule.

New kittens and cats arrive every week. We always need good foster homes for these cuties. Read the listing for Foster Homes to get more information.

Mission Statement

Angel's Wish is dedicated to reducing animal overpopulation, rehoming companion animals, and raising awareness of animal welfare issues in South Central Wisconsin.

Description

Angel's Wish is a non-profit, 501c3 agency, staffed entirely by volunteers. We do not maintain a shelter, but instead use volunteer foster homes to provide a less-stressful environment until our animals find new homes. We actively seek out new adoptive homes via our website, Petfinder.com, and through adoption events at our adoption center, at Mound's Petfood Warehouse, PETsMART East, and PETsMART West. We promote spaying/neutering of companion animals to help reduce pet overpopulation, and practice neuter before adoption. We also provide microchipping to the public to help lost animals find their way home.
