South Wood County Humane Society’s caring and dedicated staff are here to serve our communities stray and unwanted animals.
Executive Director – TBD
Director of Animal Care – Beth Peabody
I started at the Humane Society in 2006! I have seen everything from 98 surrendered puppy mill dogs to a stray, standoffish German Shepherd, who now lives on a 200+ acre ranch spoiled by horses and children. I have chased down dogs in the freezing cold and tried to capture a crane with an arrow through its belly on the hottest day. I wouldn’t change a thing! I live with 7 dogs (2 senior Great Danes, 2 middle aged Shepherds, 1 Australian Shepherd, 1 Shiba Inu and 1 West Highland Terrier) and 8 cats of all different ages. I am forever grateful and honored to be part of this amazing place and I hope you will stop by the shelter and witness the magic that is South Wood County Humane Society.
Front Office Coordinator – Stephanie Mraz
I started volunteering at a rescue in Minnesota, shortly after I adopted my first puppy. I’ve always had a passion for animals and we always had dogs and cats growing up. After moving to Wisconsin and establishing a life here, I couldn’t wait to get back into the rescue world! I currently have 2 dogs, Huntar & Molly, and 4 cats!
Kennel Manager – Jessie Shearier
I have always loved animals! When I was 13 I began volunteering at the South Wood County Humane Society. After life took me down another path, I found myself back at SWCHS. Animals have always been my passion and I couldn’t be happier to be back. After 1 year of working in dog room, I accepted the position of Kennel Manager and have also begun classes to become a certified dog trainer. At home I live with my daughter, 2 German Shepherds (Elsa & Eve), 1 Collie/Staffordshire Terrier mix (Patch-Rick) and 3 cats (Squirtle, Sprout & Umbreon). If you are looking for something to do on a nice day or looking to adopt a dog, stop in and see me!
