Pam McCloud Smith, Executive Director

Dear Friends, In this Family Tails issue, we are featuring Dane County Humane Society’s wildlife rehabilitation program, Four Lakes Wildlife Center (FLWC). We are very proud to help Wisconsin’s ill, injured or orphaned native wild animals. We think it’s important that you, our supporters, understand why wildlife rehabilitation is a vital part of our mission of “Helping People Help Animals.” The goal of wildlife rehabilitation is to provide care to wild animals so they can be returned to their natural habitat. We are saving animals that would not be able to care for themselves and are here to relieve pain and suffering for animals that are beyond the ability to recover. Positive outcomes for our patients are increased due to our partnership with UW Veterinary Care’s Special Species Service. We are also helping to conserve threatened species, such as crevice dwelling bats, that play a very important role in the ecosystem. By saving these animals, we are helping to keep our local ecosystem thriving and diverse. In addition, wildlife rehabilitation is important for public health. Cases seen at FLWC can be an environmental indicator for disease transmission and environmental toxins. Rehabilitators are trained to identify not only common conditions seen like shock, dehydration and wounds, but more importantly, they are watchful for any indicators of zoonotic diseases, toxins and other conditions that could harm people. One of the most important facets of our wildlife program is education. We educate the public about encounters with wildlife through the thousands of phone calls we take every year and by providing guidance via our Dane County Humane Society website. Each summer is filled with giving species-specific information on what to do if you find a baby wild animal. A wild baby’s best chance for survival is with its mother in the wild and our FLWC staff and volunteers help the public understand the natural history of the wild animals we share the community with. Through this shared knowledge, concerned citizens can better understand when to intervene and when a baby is best left alone. As the human population in our community increases and wildlife habitats shrink, human-wildlife encounters will increase. Our wildlife admissions have steadily increased over the years, demonstrating the great need for this program. We feel that in addition to our lifesaving work for companion animals, our efforts saving and rehabilitating Wisconsin’s wildlife are together helping to build a more humane community. Thank you, as always, for your continued support which makes this work possible.

Family Scrapbook

Alumni Updates Haiku came to DCHS as a stray - skinny and

scared. It didn’t take long, however, for Haiku to find his new forever family and start learning how good the good life can be! “Haiku slept right next to me in bed on his first night in our house, and I didn’t even mind when he tried to push me off my pillow because he seemed so happy. Thank you to everyone at (Dane County)Humane Society who helped him get better and who helped us meet Haiku and bring him home,” says Alyson, Haiku’s new person.

Bat-ham “I just wanted to say that Lewis the hamster is the softest, friendliest little guy I’ve ever had the pleasure of adopting. I renamed him Bat-ham, because he’s the color of a bat and I like Batman,” says Catherine, Bat-ham’s new mom. “I had promised to send a photo when I adopted him last year but never did, so here he is wearing a tiny Santa hat my mom made for him.” “Thanks, he has added a lot of fun and joy to my life!”

Skippy and Buddy (formerly Tubs) were surrendered to DCHS

after having lived in the same house together most of their lives. They were a bonded pair, meaning we were looking for a family to adopt them together, which they were near the end of 2015. Skippy and Buddy, with canine siblings Shelby and Ellie, join their new family on adventures across the country! Most recently Skippy and Buddy could be found enjoying the sunshine on a beach in Hawaii!

Barn Grand Opening! Sunday, June 26 1:30 – 3:30 PM rand G n r a B e h t r o Y’all join us fg, ya hear?! Openin

Dane County Humane Society staff and volunteers are particularly enjoying the warmer weather because it means the completion of construction for our new barn has stayed on schedule! Many in our community don’t know that DCHS is often asked to take in horses, goats, chickens and other livestock when these animals can no longer be cared for at home. These animals require special care and facilities, which we will now be able to provide onsite with our new barn! Join us for our Barn Grand Opening Celebration on Sunday, June 26, from 1:30pm-3:30 pm. We’ll have cold beverages and treats, kids’ activities and toe-tapping barnyard music. You’ll be able to explore the new building and maybe even meet some of our first barn residents! We look forward to welcoming all our supporters to this free community event.

Spring has sprung, the flowers are blooming and the baby owls are falling from the trees. At Dane County Humane Society’s Four Lakes Wildlife Center (FLWC), the first call that a baby owl has tumbled from its nest is a sure sign of the changing season. This year, that call came on March 14 when a 4-6 week old great horned owl fell into the yard of a Madison resident. They called FLWC, and volunteers John Kraak and Michael Minardi went to see about the young bird. The baby owl was brought to FLWC for a veterinary evaluation to be sure she wasn’t injured in the fall. She was given a clean bill of health and a good meal while she waited to return home. Strong winds creating dangerous renesting conditions persisted for two days, but on the third day, the weather was clear and she was ready to go. A combination of the original nest tree being rotted through, needing to make a new nest site in an adjacent tree and a sibling needing to make the move as well, resulted in a highly technical and difficult, four hour renesting. What a way to kick off the owl renesting season! From March to May, DCHS’s wildlife rehabilitation program will get 15 to 20 calls that a baby owl, mostly great horned owls, has fallen out of its nest. Already in 2016, they have renested nine baby great horned owls. “Great horned owls typically rely on vacant nests from other species to raise their young. Since the nests have been used before, they are often times in poor repair or simply not big enough to accommodate the growing owlets, resulting in one or more of them tumbling to the ground,” says Brooke Lewis, DCHS Wildlife Rehabilitation Supervisor. “Once there they become easy targets for predators. ”

Giving a Hoot! When baby owls fall from the sky

Even though this happens every year around the same time, every case is a little different, every story unique. Thanks to generous supporters of DCHS, our professional FLWC staff and experienced volunteers are able to constantly adapt to give every baby owl their best chance, which is with their parents in the wild. Most of the time, Kraak and Minardi renest young owls who tumble out of small, crumbling nests, but sometimes they are called in to aid a brancher who needs a little help finding his way home. A brancher is a baby owl at the stage when they are getting ready to learn to fly. They will hop out of the nest onto nearby branches and eventually build up the courage to test out their wings and go fluttering through the air before landing on the ground. If all goes well they will climb back up to the safety of the tree. On March 23, however, a couple in Middleton heard a knocking on their door. When they went to see who was there they found a great horned owl brancher tapping his beak on their front door. A call to FLWC soon had Kraak and a team of interns coming to check on the brancher. With no nest in site, they had the young owl call out to his parents and were soon able to spot Mom and Dad near the nest site. It turned out the young brancher had tumbled into a fenced in yard where he met the family dogs, climbed the fence and then walked two blocks up the road to the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s porch he was found on.

Nemo needed some additional To ensure the young owl did not receive any injuries during his encounter with the dogs, Kraak brought him to FLWC to be tender loving care. He went to a examined by the rehabilitation staff. The brancher was found to be in foster home and just look at his good condition and the next day he was back in the steady hands of Kraak and Minardi. Minardi, a certified arborist, donning climbing transformation! With some extra and safety equipment, scaled the tree to reach the nest 45 feet up. love, we found a wonderful guy Kraak managed the ropes below and prepared the young bird for a named Nemo. safe ascent up to the nest. <<Story continues on page 8

It takes a special combination of dedication, training and guts to do what these volunteers do. Around the shelter they are referred to as the Dynamic Duo. They jokingly call themselves the Dorky Duo, but it’s no joke when it comes to how many young birds this duo helps save every year.

Cover Story Continued...

“It is a total team effort, from the concerned finder who calls us; to the volunteers, staff and interns who rescue, examine and treat the animal; to the people who renest, reunite and release. The entire process depends on everyone working as a team,” says Kraak, a retired Marine and long-time DCHS volunteer. In addition to owls, thousands of other wild animals have been able to survive, receive rehabilitative care and be released back into the wild thanks to the dedicated FLWC staff and volunteers. FLWC is the third largest wildlife rehabilitation program in the state and takes in more than 3,000 wild animals every year. By having a sustainable wildlife program, we can continue to develop a community of people committed to helping wild animals and Wisconsin’s ecosystem. Please consider a donation to support our FLWC program. Your generosity can help ensure the thousands of wild animals that come to our wildlife center receive the best treatment possible. >> Written by Marissa DeGroot, Public Relations Coordinator >>Photos taken by Jenn Jackson and Mike Minardi

Family Tails|Spring 2016


Community Dog Day People were signing in almost an hour before the Community Dog Day event started on October 10, 2015. Soon, the sidewalks and sunny green grass in front of the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County were dotted with small groups of people and their dogs, patiently waiting for their turn to enter the building. Dorian and his two young nephews were petting their two 9-month-old dogs, Chico and K-Dog, keeping them occupied as they waited. They were at the event because they had come before and got a lot of help for their puppies. Samantha and Simmone were there with 9-year-old ChiChi. “She’s a rescue dog. We were her third chance,” Samantha explained as her daughter held the Chihuahua. “Someone had found her but didn’t want her. They gave her to a friend who couldn’t keep her, so we adopted her.” They have had ChiChi for four years and appreciate DCHS coming to their neighborhood so they can get her the care she needs. Inside, volunteers were receiving their final briefing on their tasks. The 63 volunteers included DCHS staff and volunteers, community volunteers, veterinarians and students attending the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. By 1:00 everyone was ready and in their places, and the first owner and his small black dog approached the information table. Community Dog Day had begun. One hundred six dogs attended this Community Dog Day. “This event was our fourth year running and the fifth Community Dog Day event to take place,” Michelle Livanos, Development Administrative Assistant for DCHS, reported. “Community Dog Day events are held in Madisonarea neighborhoods where we see a high intake of dogs at the shelter. We hold these events to reach out to these neighborhoods and forge new relationships.” “In addition to administering vaccines for rabies and distemper, microchips, and flea and tick treatments and making dog supplies and dog food available to take home at no costs, we also share information about DCHS services and local resources,” explained Michelle. “We also hold these events to encourage spaying and neutering, as a means to decrease the homeless pet population.” Sincere thanks are given to the several organizations that made Community Dog Day possible through their generous support. >>Written by Sue Dottle, DCHS Volunteer Visit giveshelter.org to read the full article

Family Giving Constant Companion

Interested in Leaving a Legacy? Legacy Tea July 21, 2016 Join us on July 21, when we hold an afternoon tea discussion about how our supporters can reach beyond their lifespan in doing good works that support Dane County Humane Society. Hear stories from other donors about what inspired them to make a gift to help animals in our community. Please email us at development@giveshelter.org or call 608-838-0413 x 117 with questions or to get on the guest list. Space is limited.

How Recurring Monthly Donations Help You and DCHS Supporting Dane County Humane Society (DCHS), whether through a monetary donation, in-kind gifts or donating your time and skills, helps us care for thousands of homeless animals and injured and orphaned wildlife every year. There is, however, a way that your support can have an even greater impact. Committing to become a monthly recurring donor, or what we call our Constant Companions, can benefit you, as well as the animals at DCHS. Simplifying the Donation Process When you sign up to give a recurring donation online, there are no checks to mail and no reminders needed. Much of the expense and hassle has been eliminated. For those of you that like being reminded that your recurring donation is about to take place, DCHS can send out an email regarding the upcoming gift. This also helps reduce the amount of paper that we use to run our fundraising department, which means more money goes directly to the animals! Spreading Out Financial Impact for You and Improving Cash Flow for Dane County Humane Society A monthly gift allows you to spread the financial impact of your giving across the entire year. For many, this is the easiest way for someone, wishing to begin the move, to become a major donor to DCHS. Generally, DCHSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operating costs are spread out evenly throughout the year, but we receive a majority of our income in the last fiscal quarter of the year. Making monthly donations helps DCHS build a steady stream of recurring gifts which helps reduce this imbalance and provides much needed support during fallow periods. A strong monthly recurring donation program can also help an organization improve its long-range planning and decision-making. Revenue from recurring donations is far more predictable than revenue from one time gifts. Using these numbers, DCHS will be able to better forecast revenue with a high degree of accuracy. Being able to predict income in advance allows us to better plan and make decisions for the shelter and the growing needs of our community.

A Gift that Honors a Life Our friends and loved ones inspire us, change our lives, make us better people.

Little Supporters Giving Big! At DCHS we appreciate all donations made, but we are especially inspired when children decide to give!

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by their love of animals, establishing a one-time or annual memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor them while also making a difference in the lives of animals in our community. Make a gift in honor of someone who is an animal lover to mark a special occasion such as a birthday, holiday, accomplishment, wedding or anniversary. Make a gift in memory of a loved one that has passed or to show support and comfort for someone who is mourning the passing of a person or pet.
