Welcome to the Ocooch Mountain Humane Society

Mascot of the Year Contest!

Do you have a pet that you'd like to see honored as the very special cat or dog that he or she is?

If so, now is the time to get started campaigning for him or her to win the honor of representing OMHS as one of this year's Mascots of the Year!


So, how can your beloved dog or cat become an entrant in this year's OMHS Mascot of the Year Contest?

To enter the 2022 Contest, you will need to submit to OMHS a photo of your pet and its name, along with your name, address, email address, phone number, and the name of the pet and its age, sending all of this information to spanske32@gmail.com. The due date for you to send this information is April 5.


Then it's time for you to start raising money for OMHS on behalf of your pet!  Contact family members, friends, people at work, at church, and at other places that you go and/or events that you attend, and ask them to donate to OMHS on behalf of your pet, making sure when they donate to name the pet that they're supporting for Mascot of the Year,  If a donation is made on-line via PayPal, be sure to complete BOTH STEPS and be sure to put the name of the pet in the “Comments” section as well clicking on Mascot of the Year under Reason for Donation (just above the “SUBMIT” button) so that OMHS knows which pet to credit with the donation.


Donations by mail will also be accepted; these should be mailed to OMHS Pet Mascot, 261 N Park St, Richland Center, WI 53581 ATTN: Sharon Panske and need to be postmarked by May 20. The window for making donations on behalf of Mascot of the Year entries will be April 10 to May 20.  It's that simple! 


Meanwhile, if you have questions or want more details about the contest or how to enter your pet or make donations, check out OMHS on Facebook or call Sharon at 608-647-8406.
