 PURPOSE

 The Waupun Area Animal Shelter, Inc. was established to serve the City of Waupun and the surrounding areas through responsible, legal and humane handling of strays and unwanted pets and to raise the consciousness in the Waupun area in order to promote responsible pet ownership.  The Shelter will provide humane care and treatment for cats and dogs needing protection in our area.  We will seek to return lost cats and dogs to their owners, seek suitable homes for cats and dogs without owners, and attempt to assist with care and placement of unmentioned species.

We do not support the movement by some national humane groups to abolish the raising of animals for food or clothing, etc., or the raising of companion animals to serve or accompany man.  Nor do we support any movement to abolish the responsible hunting of un-endangered species of wild game animals.  But rather we feel that because domestic animals do serve man in a variety of ways, they are entitled to humane and responsible lifetime care from their human friends.

 

 


HISTORY

 

The Waupun Area Animal Shelter was incorporated on May 23, 2005.

 


THE PLAN

 

The Waupun Area Animal Shelter, Inc. is contracted with the City of Waupun to care for stray cats and dogs.  Surrenders are accepted on a case-by-case basis. This care will include but not be limited to, veterinary care, food, shelter, training, emotional support, humane euthanasia.  This care will continue until the animal can be placed with a loving family or until euthanasia is deemed necessary.  We will set in place educational opportunities for caring for animals.  This activity will begin as soon as a building is either purchased or constructed that can be used to shelter homeless animals.  The founding members of the Shelter, and any and all volunteers will be responsible for the care of the animals.  The Waupun Area Animal Shelter, Inc. will rely solely on donations and volunteers.
