Elmbrook Humane Society Charity Profile
The mission of the Elmbrook Humane Society is to promote the human-animal bond through adoption and education, to provide shelter to homeless animals, and to prevent animal cruelty and neglect.
EBHS has service contracts with the City of Brookfield, Villages of Butler, Chenequa, Elm Grove, Nashotah and the Towns of Brookfield and Delafield. These contracts provide for taking unwanted pets and strays, and rescuing injured domestic animals and wildlife. The society supports the communities by requiring proof of licensing when individuals claim strays.
EBHS has no geographic limits for adoptions. In addition, the Society will take releases from communities other than our contracted municipalities for a small release fee when, and if, space permits.
EBHS has no deadline for the animals in its care. Animals are placed for adoption as long as they have an adoptable temperament, have reasonable health, and there is room at the shelter.
EBHS is a high-placement shelter with a 98% adoption rate compared to the national average of 35% as stated by the American Humane Association, which means that we are introducing new companion animals every day for you to view and adopt.
Elmbrook Humane Society Volunteer Information
Volunteers play an important role at EBHS as they allow us to offer high quality care to our animals while helping to contain costs. Volunteers can be found in all aspects of our organization from those who assist with special events to those who work hand in hand with our staff. Currently we have over 200 volunteers that help with everything from brushing cats and dogs to cleaning their cages.
Students aged 15 and up (or Freshman in High School) will learn many aspects of animal care while participating in a variety of shelter activities. Adults don't have to feel left out; you can also participate in shelter activities, fundraising, and our numerous special events. WE DO WORK WITH COMMUNITY SERVICE VOLUNTEERS.
Elmbrook Humane Society Donation Information
Our shelter relies on private contributions to fund our programs and services and provide a means for caring for homeless animals. Your gift will help unfortunate animals get back on their paws and into loving homes.
