2021 Wellies Chosen Charity: Dane County Humane Society

In teaching the importance of giving back and helping our community, our Wellies voted to support Dane County Humane Society this season. The Dane County Humane Society provides refuge, healing and new beginnings to over 9,000 companion animals, exotic species, farm animals and injured or orphaned wild animals every year. We invite you to help support them with us!

This year, we are collecting items on their wish list. These can be things you find already in your home (used towels and blankets) or items you buy for furry friends while out doing your regular shopping. Starting December 1, we will have a box in each classroom to collect donated items!
