Who are we?
Angel’s Wish is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)3 charitable organization founded in 2000.
Angel’s Wish is dedicated to reducing animal overpopulation, rehoming companion animals, and raising awareness of animal welfare issues in South Central Wisconsin.
The Animals We Help
In 2015, we took in 582 cats and 4 dogs from nearly 20 different counties in Wisconsin (and a few from other states). The top three counties we took in animals from were Dane (238 animals), Iowa (89), Green (37), Rock (32), and Milwaukee (30) . In 2015, we adopted out 561 cats and 5 dogs. For more details on 2015, check out our 2015 Asilomar Records. In the last ten years, we have helped over 5,000 animals find their new homes.
Why are we called Angel’s Wish?
Lois Lawrence, a founding member of Angel’s Wish, once rescued a kitten from a construction site. Weak with starvation, dehydration, and a severe upper respiratory infection, neither veterinary treatment nor Lois’ love and care could save the kitten from the effects of that hot June day. Angel died that night in Lois’ arms. We believe that Angel’s wish would have been that no other animal be subjected to pain, suffering, abandonment or neglect.
