Who we are
Established in 1970, Wonderland Humane Society was one of the first animal welfare groups to operate in Northern Michigan. WHS has served many community needs over the years including spay/neuter assistance, pet fostering, humane education and even operating the county animal shelter for a while during a period of funding shortage.
WHS is a very small group of people who try to make a difference and need your help to do it. We are your family members, friends, neighbors and coworkers . We are local community members who love animals and care about their health and welfare.
What we are
WHS is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) animal welfare volunteer organization. We receive no funding from any governmental agency and we are not affiliated with any larger humane organizations.
Where we are
We work out of our homes. We do not have an office or a run an animal shelter. We hold our monthly meetings at a public location (currently Horizon Book Store).
How we are funded
We are funded by local donations. We have no paid officers or employees, so all of our funding goes to our Spay/Neuter Assistance Program and humane education projects..
Why we exist
• To promote the health and welfare of the animals in our community.
• To educate the community about animal welfare and the groups and resources available to help them.
• To be a communication link between local animal organizations to better serve and educate the public; and civic and local governmental organizations.
