Inspire collaborative efforts to decrease the homeless pet population.

We started with a wish.

A wish for a better future for homeless animals – better than one being euthanized every 4 seconds in a shelter. Better than 45 kittens and 15 puppies born for every human birth. Better than thousands upon thousands of kittens being born outside to feral mothers, destined to fall victim to wild animals, vehicles or disease.

Our wish is for a future where every homeless pet will be treated with respect, and be cared for, living in a safe environment.

Because when kindness and respect guide our actions toward every other living being, the world is a better place for everyone.

Guided by the model of Best Friends Animal Society, we’re working toward no more homeless pets – starting with Wisconsin.

WISH was founded in May, 2011 by Emily Anderson and Natalie Nelson, both of whom have volunteered in animal welfare for many years. Emily volunteered extensively with local animal rescues, and went on to found two no-kill rescues in the Fox Valley area. Natalie has also volunteered with various animal welfare organizations and served as the Director of a local animal shelter and was also a founder of a no-kill animal rescue.
Using their combined experience, they hope to reach out to animal welfare groups across the Midwest to help them strengthen their organizations, increase adoptions, garner volunteer and community support, and do their part to reduce the homeless pet overpopulation epidemic. Consulting services are offered at no charge.
We will also be implementing Trap-Neuter-Release programs to help prevent unwanted babies from being born into a world where there are not enough homes for them.
WISH is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and operates as a 100% volunteer-run, no-kill, foster-home-based animal welfare organization that is based in the Fox Cities. We receive no federal or local funding; we rely completely on donations to fund our consulting efforts, trips to shelters and rescues, TNR program and care for the homeless kittens and special needs cats in our foster homes.
Since June 2011 we've adopted out over 90 cats, kittens, puppies and dogs. We've also spay/neutered countless others as well as supported various shelters and rescues across Wisconsin with marketing and business support so they can save additional lives.

This last December Natalie at WISH helped me with all my 200 questions relating to a stray(AKA Parker) that was found outside in the cold WI December(Friday night) weather. Parker was nothing but a lover boy to myself and two other people that actually found him and brought him to me. I was able to... more »

As a veterinarian I work with many homeless pets. Often these forgotten animals are not only starved for attention but suffering from serious health problems. They face a long road to physical and emotional recovery. WISH has impressed me with their dedication to their charges. They go the extra 100... more »
