The annual Festival of Trees is a beautiful holiday celebration of lights and unique designs. During the weekend of the event, the training center will be turned into a magical Christmas wonderland complete with refreshment cafe, continuous holiday entertainment and gift boutique.

The Festival has become a very popular community event with individuals and businesses sponsoring trees, wreaths, swags, and centerpieces, and then decorating them according to a particular theme. Festival-goers delight in strolling along the “snowy” paths, and choosing their favorites for the People’s Choice awards. Attendees can also enjoy refreshments from the cafe, and visit the beautiful holiday boutique filled with crafts from artists throughout southeastern Wisconsin.

All proceeds go towards the care and treatment of animals in the shelter.

TNR Homes Needed

imgres

Do you have a barn or out building where you need a little rodent control? Or perhaps you’d just like to have some feline friends on your property? Look no further, WCHS is looking for OUTDOOR cat homes for our feral (unfriendly) cats that others unfortunately can’t put back on their property.

The qualifications to “adopt” are:

    • Barn/Out building where the cats can be safe from harsh weathers/seek shelter from predators
    • Ability to do a 2-3 week quarantine for each new cat in a room/crate they cat cannot get out of
    • Provide food and water
    • The new caretaker should want to make verbal attempts to bond with them. Even though these cats are not friendly in shelter environments, they may become friendly to the caretakers.


All cats put through our TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) program get spayed/neutered, a left ear tip, which signifies they are part of an outdoor community that is cared for and have been fixed, and a rabies shot (depended on age/weight).  All of this comes at no cost to you if you are in Washington County!

Interested? Call WCHS at 262-677-4388 and ask for Jessie or Tina for more details!
