  1. I lost my cat since June 13, 2018 in the village of Bruce. Do you have any suggestions on how and what I should do in order to find her. I’m very sad and worry on how she is surviving all alone outside. Please email me back ASAP, Thank You, Sincerely, Lupe Smilowski

    1. Lost Cats of Wisconsin has many great resources listed on their site. We have strays brought into the shelter regularly so make sure to keep an eye on our facebook as well.
