Friends of Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center:
It is with mixed emotions that I notify you of our intent to cease operations.
Throughout the last few months, we have carefully and thoughtfully been reviewing our program for sustainability. We have come to the conclusion that it is in the best interest of the animals and the community we serve to cease operations. We have saved many lives and achieved many goals. Unfortunately, the costs associated with maintaining a property and providing extremely high quality care for the animals are more than we can support.
We sincerely believe that our time and talents will be embraced by one or more of the other reputable local animal welfare organizations and utilized in a more economical manner. In fact, many of our volunteers have already begun searching for their next opportunity to serve the animals and our community.
We do not consider this announcement a failure. We are very proud of all that we have accomplished. We simply feel that the available community resources should be directed towards animal care and programming instead of property maintenance and overhead.
All of the animals in our program have been successfully adopted!
ATTN ADOPTERS: If you should require assistance at any time, please do not hesitate to call 414-421-8881 or email email@example.com for guidance and support. To surrender an animal adopted from the Center, please contact the Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County by calling 262-542-8851. HAWS has graciously agreed to provide care and re-adoption services for any animal adopted through the Center.
We expect to close on the property sale in December.
Brick pavers are now available for pick up or shipping. If you have not yet made arrangements to receive your brick, please call 414-421-8881 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Daniel has always fit in well with my family and we have officially adopted him! Don’t worry…he will remain active in the animal welfare community as an ambassador for homeless animals!
Additional details will be shared as soon as they are finalized and available.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone 414.421.8881 or email email@example.com!
