Angel’s Wish

We are cat specialists! Over 99% of the animals we help are cats. In 2019, we took in 764 cats and 1 dog from nearly 20 different counties in Wisconsin (and a few from other states). Many are kittens found by Good Samaritans or by volunteers doing TNR (trap-neuter-release) of outdoor cats. Others are surrendered by owners, while a few are found strays that are not reclaimed. And whenever we can, we work with humane societies and rescue groups in Wisconsin to transfer their animals to us where they will have a better chance of being adopted. In 2019, we adopted out 694 cats and 1 dog. Angel’s Wish is considered “limited-admission” as we limit the number of animals we take in to the number we can care for and that will likely be adoptable. We are also considered “no-kill” or “adoption guarantee” as we humanely euthanize animals who are suffering with severe behavior and/or medical conditions, but never for space.
