VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

ALL of our volunteers are STARS of course, and we appreciate each and every one of them!!

It is difficult to pick just one, so we didn’t!

We would like to give a special thank you to Kris James in the Dog area for his dedication. He has been coming in on a daily basis to help! Thank you so much for your time Kris!

We would also like to thank Alyssa for her keen eye and observation in the cat area and all the HARD work she does!

Thank you guys SO much for all that you do, we love your dedication and your work ethics!

 

P.S. If you have the time and desire, we are still in need of volunteers in office area!

 

NEWS

Veterans Day is coming up and we at WAHS would like to support our troops!

This week Tuesday through Friday we will waive our adoption fee to veterans who would like to adopt. Military ID or proof of service must be presented with your adoption application to be eligible. Regular adoption process will still apply.

We have a fun event happening this month at WAHS. All Adopters in the month of November will be entered into a raffle to win the ADORABLE Cleo the Catfish kitty bed generously donated by Angela and Luke Lallemont. What a creative way to be involved at WAHS!

Winona! What a great community! We have had a very busy kitten season. My heart leaps for joy when I hear the stories of kittens found and re-homed via friends, family, Face-book, and co-workers. We all share in the reward when we share the responsibility of caring for the lost and unwanted animals in our community. You are truly amazing in your compassion.

If you have or know someone with cat needing spay or neuter procedure. Contact WAHS for resource information! Lets all be part of the solution to overpopulation, reducing the number of unwanted pets.

 

FUNDRAISER UPDATES

 

MOOLA CAPS

A big THANK YOU to everyone who saves their Kwik Trip Moola caps, bag labels and donut ovals for the WAHS. A special shout out to Blooming Grounds for taking the time to save all their Moolas for us. Just one easy way to make a difference in the life of a furry friend!

 

WTSA

We had a great turn out for the Affair for the Animals and a good time was had by all.  We are grateful for all who came out to support Winona Area Humane Society!

 

MERCHANDISE EXTRAVAGANZA

Attention WAHS fans, We still have “I Would Cuddle You So Hard” t-shirts available and they are now on sale for $10.00 each. Also wristbands are 50% off. Stop in and stock up for friends, family, or yourself! We have glow in the dark wristbands as well, fun for Halloween!

 

 

We value your input

Do you have questions, comments, or concerns regarding our facility? If so, you can email those to wahscomments@gmail.com. This is the official way to submit your comments. Please do not email individual board members. Board members and facility staff will review these comments and appropriate action will be taken if necessary.

 

HELPING IN A DIFFERENT WAY

The WAHS Wish List is available on amazon.com for those wishing to donate specific, much-needed supplies to WAHS. The Wish List is also available in our office and on our website in the Get Involved section.

 

Would you like to do your normal shopping AND help WAHS at the same time? Amazon Smile is a program offered by Amazon. When you make a purchase on Amazon, you can also make a donation. For more information go to  http://smile.amazon.com/about.

 

Kwik Trip offers two ways for their customers to give back to the community. First, the Milk Moola program. If you buy Kwik Trip bottled drinks (milk, orange juice, water, etc), Glazers donuts, and/or bagged milk/juice, before you throw the empty containers in the trash, consider cutting off the top of the bag, saving those caps or cutting off the price label from the front of the glazers boxes and dropping them off in the WAHS office. We can turn these in to Kwik Trip for a donation. Second, if you have a Kwik Card, you can set it up to send a percentage of your purchases to WAHS.

 

The smartphone app WoofTrax also will donate to WAHS each time you walk while using the app!

 

PAYPAL

The WAHS now has a PayPal account for those looking for a more convenient way to donate to our organization. You can find a link to our PayPal on our Facebook page and on our website’s homepage (winonahumanesociety.org) near the bottom.
