“When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul.”

~A.D. Williams

Kay Amland

Executive Director 

My first animals came from WCHS, along with my earliest childhood memories of watching my mother work to end animal abuse and neglect as a charter member in the 1960s.  It is rewarding to “come home” and continue the laudable work she and others began.

Chris Fleischmann 

Office Manager

What I love about working at WCHS is knowing that I am part of a great team who takes care of animals temporarily who haven’t found their “forever” homes yet. These animals are safe, warm & fed and love us no matter what has happened to them before they came to WCHS. Then, after they have been adopted and we get to read the letters from their happy owners – who has a better job than us?

Jessica Wermager

Operations Manager

I love my job because every animal deserves a second chance to be loved.

Joe Poczkalski

Communication Specialist

There is no greater feeling of success than when good people come together in an organization and accomplish something meaningful. I see this happen every day at WCHS and am so proud to be a part of it.
