Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

WISCONSIN – In August, every single dollar donated to the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) will be matched up to $200,000!

Donations made to the WHS Green Bay and Door County Campuses will be generously matched up to $100,000 thanks to the George Kress Family Foundation; donations made to the Milwaukee, Ozaukee, and Racine Campuses will be matched by the Nicholas Family Foundation, Joyce Madsen & pups, Jude Ford, the Robertson Family, Nancy Behrens, Todd & Kim James, Kathleen Ryan, and other friends of the Wisconsin Humane Society. 

You can double your impact for animals now with this dollar-for-dollar match! That means…

  • $30 will become $60 to provide training for dogs with special behavior needs.
  • $50 will become $100 to help spay or neuter animals so they can be adopted and given the second chance they deserve.
  • $100 will become $200 to help rescued animals receive emergency surgery, medical treatment, and behavioral support.

“We are in the middle of our busiest season, caring for about 900 animals a day, all at a time when donations traditionally slow down,” said Angela Speed, vice president of communications at WHS. “This opportunity couldn’t come at a better time and we’re so grateful to those donors who will undoubtedly inspire others with their generosity.”

As WHS doesn’t receive general government funding and is not part of any national umbrella group, the local nonprofit depends the generosity of the community to annually serve 40,000 animals and their families.
