The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) Door County Campus is still buzzing with activity behind the scenes despite having temporarily paused adoption services due to Covid-19 impacts to staffing. Staff at the shelter have been caring for many cats and kittens with ringworm, a fungal infection that takes weeks, if not months, to be effectively cured.
The WHS Door County Campus annually serves the most ringworm-positive animals of any other WHS campus. Their experienced staff, the shelter configuration, and quiet environment make it a uniquely supportive respite for animals requiring ringworm treatment, which involves many sulfur baths over several weeks.
Thanks to these efforts, the number of cats and kittens with ringworm went from 20 to just six in a matter of weeks. Those 14 felines who are now ringworm-free will be transferred to the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Green Bay and Milwaukee Campuses for adoption. The Door County Campus hopes to resume adoption services in early February.
The WHS Door County Campus is still open for stray and surrender intake. If you lost your animal, found a stray, or need to surrender your animal, please call 920-746-1111. For updates regarding adoption services, please visit www.wihumane.org/adopt.
