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 2016, we took in 658 cats and 5 dogs from nearly 20 different counties in Wisconsin (and a few from other states). In 2016, we adopted out 627 cats and 4 dogs and ended the year with 1 dog and 106 cats in foster care. For more animal statistics from 2016, check out our 2016 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.
