    Wisconsin Humane Society Needs Help
    A friend of mine sent this. The Watertown (Wisconsin) Humane Society shelter is home to about 150 homeless animals. Donations are down 75% this year and they are in danger of closing. They are trying to get bank loans to stay open, but they've made an appeal to the public for donations. I'm sure many of you might have the same happening to your local shelters, but if any of you can donate anything, please do. We'll be donating. If you do donate, please PM so I can tell my friend. She'd be please with any help you all can give.

    Searched all over for a donation page. I think they are not ready to accept online donations yet. :-( Maybe you could help her set up a PayPal account so she can accept online donations. Would make a huge difference for her plight. I would have donated tonight if there was a way.
    Peace,

    I'll see what I can do about PayPal. I think you can send checks by mail (though I realize that's not as convenient).

    Ok, I've heard from my friend that PayPal is not an option for them. Apparently, a previous manager did something that caused PayPal to sever their relationship with the shelter and though that manager is no longer working there, PayPal will not reconsider allowing them to have an account.

    Does anyone know of a good PayPal alternative?

    In the meantime, they do have a credit card processor and can accept credit cards over the phone.

    Thanks to everyone who has helped out with this. There are many shelters struggling right now, but this one is in particularly dire straits and they're hoping to turn it around.

    Update! The shelter was unable to resolve its issue with PayPal, so they have implemented Google Checkout for online donations.

    The donation box is in the upper right under the main header:
