Every day of the year, homeless pets
require food, shelter, and medical attention.

Our Feline Friends and Puppy Pals

program is dedicated to providing the best possible care
and meeting the ‘basic needs’ of these animals.

With your pledge of $25 a month for one year,
Your name or business will be displayed

Feline Friend

Puppy Pal.”

It may not seem like much, but here are just a few things $25 buys:
oEnough food to feed all the shelter residents for one day.
oVaccinations and microchip to prepare one cat or dog for adoption.
oFlea/tick and heartworm preventative for one dog.
oFlea/earmite/deworming for two cats.

There are two ways to donate:
Send your monthly check to GLAAS,
PO Box 86, Green Lake, WI 54941
(and note Puppy Pal or Feline Friend in the memo)
Choose Puppy Pal or Feline Friend
From our online giving options here.

Thank you for your commitment to our mission.
Remember, the animals count on YOU!

We are desperately in need of quite a few supplies:

Clorox Clean Up, or any brand disinfecting cleaner WITH bleach

Clorox Wipes, or any brand disinfecting wipes

Any brand of non-clumping cat litter

Laundry Soap  &  Bleach

Iams or Nutro ( or better! ) dry pet food

Paper Towels  &  Kleenex

We also accept gift cards to any stores that sell these supplies - we'll make the shopping trip if you send us the gift card!
All donations are tax-deductible

Know any store owners or managers?  Ask them if they might consider donating damaged or open packages of merchandise to us.  Instead of throwing things away, they could help the animals!
Pick up can be arranged, and receipts are available!



We are still looking for a full time staff person. We've been looking for several months and still have not found the right fit for our shelter.

Admittedly, this is not a job for everyone. It can be emotionally exhausting most days, and there are as many philosophies about animal sheltering as there are applicants.

We've had a handful of people start and not work out, and, to be honest, I think it is because the job is not even close to what some might think it will be. There is a ton of cleaning, every day, and the work is pretty physical (bending, lifting, carrying, working on your hands and knees, stairs, hauling 100 feet of hose around, etc.). That said, it is not difficult work, but we have standards that we will not compromise. I want the place to be CLEAN!!!

While we certainly spend time with the animals, it is a very small percentage of what staff members do during the course of the work day. The volunteers tend to spend more time socializing and playing with the pets than we do!

We don't have a huge payroll budget, so the right person would be someone who understands this and is not looking to build a nest egg on animal shelter pay! At this time, we do not offer benefits.

Full time includes 3-4 weekdays, and every other weekend. You must be available for spay & neuter transport days, and have some flexibility in case of special circumstances, fundraisers, and holidays. This is a 365 day a year business, and we share the workload evenly between the whole staff.

Feel free to apply, or to forward or share this information as you see fit. 

Applicants - PLEASE apply by email only. (The phone already rings about 30 times a day, you'll save us both time by using email, please!) Include any previous animal care experience, which does NOT include your own pets, sorry. Animal care experience means a veterinary clinic, shelter or boarding kennel, etc. Also include any business references.
