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


In 2014 we took in 417 cats, 10 dogs, and one bird. We adopted 434 cats, 8 dogs, and one bird. All cats and dogs were spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and tested prior to adoption. All dogs were microchipped prior to adoption. Starting in the 4th quarter of 2014, we microchipped all cats prior to adoption as well.

the inventory in our retail area consists of good quality animal care supplies necessary for new adopters. We also carry products that serve to educate and further our mission and prevent behavioral issues that lead to unnecessary surrender of companion animals.

our organization microchipped 251 cats and 42 dogs in 2014. We now aim to microchip all cats and dogs prior to adoption. We microchipped almost 40% more animals than the previous year.

Angel's Wish is somewhat unique in the animal sheltering business in that the cats and kittens helped by AW spend 90% of their week in a home surrounded by kids, dogs, other cats, noise, and all the other things that an animal will encounter in any forever home. On the weekend they are brought to the shelter for people to meet them 1:1 and (with luck) go home. AW is an all volunteer organization with no paid staff existing entirely on donations it receives from its supporters and local businesses. People often find us on Petfinder.com and come in to see certain pets based on looks and wind up going home with that pet or another one (or two!) entirely based on their interactions. It's a very special place.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have adopted a cat and she's so well adjusted and comfortable in a home it's like she never spent a day in a shelter.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Greater organization by the board, but seeing as it's ALL volunteer we manage surprisingly well.
