This little puggle spends his days lying on wire mesh in a brightly-lit "state-of-the-art" cube in a Petland pet store. No blankie, no mat, no toys -- no hope.

"Most of the important things in this world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all."
           ~ Dale Carnegie

       There are so many protests and informational events coming up in the near future that we decided to start a calendar to post them all. If you have a pet shop protest or other event taking place in Wisconsin that you'd like to see added, please Email us the details for review. We must have a contact email for confirmation, and either an email address or a website URL for more information for people who want to participate. We also ask that you please read and abide by WPMP's policy for peaceful protest, as found in the Protesters' Pledge on our Peaceful Protest page.

       You are MORE than welcome to join any of the protests listed below! Please click on the "More Information" links for the details. Remember, dress for the weather, as you will be outside, and bring a sign or a poster if you can. If you don't have one, don't let that stop you -- there may be extras on-site, and your just being there is very important!

South Wood County Humane Society Compassion Fatigue & Volunteer Management Seminars
Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce
1120 Lincoln Street
Wis. Rapids, WI 54494I
Hilary Hager, HSUS Director of Volunteer Engagement will be the presenter.

8:30 am - Noon: Compassion fatigue in animal care environments. Compassion fatigue is a normal and natural response to working in the field of animal protection. Awareness of suffering, our desire to take action to alleviate it, and the weariness that results from the volume of work and depth of caring, all lead to exhaustion and burn out if not carefully managed. This workshop will explore the reasons why we do this work and what’s hard about it, the signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue and burnout, and provide a variety of tools and strategies to sustain our involvement in a challenging field. Attendees will leave with ideas to help them help themselves, their organizations and the animals in their care.

1:00 pm - 4:30 pm: Working successfuly with Volunteers. Volunteers are critical to the success of most animal welfare organizations. Too often, organizations put more emphasis on simply finding enough volunteer help than establishing the right culture among staff to ensure the program can succeed. In our haste to bring people on board, we sometimes skip important steps that will save a lot of trouble down the road. This workshop will explore the ways that every member of an organization, from the executive to the volunteer manager to the animal care staff, can help to ensure a high quality and highly functioning program. We’ll also explore how to master the challenges that come with working with a passionate group of advocates in the midst of a hectic animal care environment .

All who work and volunteer with animals are encouraged to attend. There is no fee, but registration is suggested. Please RSVP to 715-423-0505 or email: swchs@swchs.com

2015 Spring Hearing Questionaire Results Available Here!

     One night every year, EVERYONE in Wisconsin can weigh in and voice opinions on WI wildlife and outdoor issues by non-binding vote and testimony on proposed rule changes and advisory questions relating to fish and wildlife management in Wisconsin. Please see the General Spring Hearing Guidelines for an explanation of the entire process.

     County residents have the option to run for a seat on the Conservation Congress, or elect other delegates from their county to represent their county views regarding natural resources on the Conservation Congress. For those of you who would like to become more involved for wildlife in Wisconsin -- did you realize that ANYONE can run for election as a Wisconsin Conservation Congress Delegate? The election will be the first item on the hearing agenda, and would be a great opportunity to get some non-hunter or trapper voices heard. Please see: Conservation Congress Delegate Election for complete information on the election process.

     Also, individuals have the opportunity to bring forth new conservation issues of a statewide nature to the attention of the Conservation Congress through the citizen resolution process. Please see The Conservation Congress Resolution Process, How To Write a Resolution, and Resolution Template (fillable Word document) for complete information on resolutions.
