The PROMISE FUND goal is to build and establish a permanent fund of assets sufficient in size that, when invested prudently, will provide a perpetual source of operating income to:

  • Shelter all animals in a clean, safe and compassionate environment until owners or adoptive homes are found.
  • Adopt homeless pets into loving permanent homes.
  • Partner with other friends of animals to ensure that all our pets are provided the opportunity to live a healthy & peaceful life.
  • Assist Brown County residents who need help to find, feed or adequately care for their animal companions.
  • Educate people of all ages about the positive benefits of spaying and neutering, responsible pet ownership, and how to successfully integrate companion animals into family life.

Help Us Keep the Promise – forever!
