Non-profit organizations, such as the OMHS, rely a great deal on generous donations from people – people just like you – who genuinely care about animals and their welfare. A small donation can go a very long way to help a homeless pet. A larger donation benefits more animals and thus, transforms more of these animals' lives.
We don't need to remind you that times are financially very hard for most of us at the moment. If you are able to donate even a small amount, know that it is truly appreciated by a great many people that also donate their own time working for the OMHS but even more so by the animals that are lonely and awaiting unification with a new home environment.
If you are able to contribute a larger amount, the same is also true but the appreciation is more widespread, since you will be helping a larger number of pets that are looking for their forever homes. If you are considering a donation but aren't really sure what to do, consider this:
What can you realistically afford? Enough for a can of cat food? That would be one more can of cat food that the stranded cat didn't have before you stepped in. That would be greatly appreciated.
Enough for a play toy? Many of the pets we have in our care, until they came to us, had no experience of even knowing what a play toy is!
Enough for a bag of dog food? A 20lb bag of dog food could feed an average dog for a couple of weeks or so.
Appreciated? You bet – the "wagginess" of the tail at feeding time is a huge indicator of this! No matter the size of your donation, rest assured that the members of the OMHS appreciate every single penny …and so do the animals. No contribution is too small and every donation is very, very much appreciated in these hard economic times. The animals in our care can't thank you directly but we can assure you that your kindness won't go unnoticed or unappreciated by the cats and dogs that have ended up in our care due to no fault of their own.
If you feel that you are able and would like to donate, there are several options open to you: The quickest way is to donate via credit/debit card or via PayPal. Either way is processed by PayPal but you don't need to have a PayPal account to donate with your credit or debit card. It is processed like any other online card transaction. If this option suits you, you can get started here.
You can donate with a check made payable to "The Ocooch Mountain Humane Society". Send your check to: "I'm Helping", OMHS, P.O. Box 229 Richland Center WI 53581
If cash is your only option, please do not send this in the mail. Please call 608-604-7848 to talk to a member of our staff to work out a mutually convenient time/location to receive the donation.
If you have any questions at all about donations or any other aspect of the OMHS, we would love to hear from you. Please do contact us! Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and for considering making a donation to the OMHS to help the animals in our care. It is only because of the benefit of many individuals' time, contributions and caring, that we are able to exist at all.
