This little puggle spends his days lying on wire mesh in a brightly-lit "state-of-the-art" cube in a Petland pet store. No blankie, no mat, no toys -- no hope.

"Most of the important things in this world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all."
           ~ Dale Carnegie

 pawprint bullet point   2017 Spring Hearing Questionaire   pawprint bullet point   2017 Spring Hearing Flyer   pawprint bullet point

NOTE: Please pay special attention to "QUESTIONS 73-74: Reciprocity dog training privileges" on the Spring Hearing Questionaire -- they concern "the training of dogs on free-roaming animals, including bear, wolf, bobcat, coyote, fox or raccoon without charging a fee. Anecdotal evidence indicates there may be an increase in individuals coming from out-of-state to train their dogs as their home states do not allow the practice."

     One night every year, EVERYONE in Wisconsin can weigh in and voice opinions on WI wildlife and outdoor issues by non-binding vote and testimony on proposed rule changes and advisory questions relating to fish and wildlife management in Wisconsin. Please see the General Spring Hearing Guidelines for an explanation of the entire process, and then help us spread the word! Print and post the flyer above to get your community involved.

     County residents have the option to run for a seat on the Conservation Congress, or elect other delegates from their county to represent their county views regarding natural resources on the Conservation Congress. For those of you who would like to become more involved for wildlife in Wisconsin -- did you realize that ANYONE can run for election as a Wisconsin Conservation Congress Delegate? The election will be the first item on the hearing agenda, and would be a great opportunity to get some non-hunter or trapper voices heard. Please see: Conservation Congress Delegate Election for complete information on the election process.

     Also, individuals have the opportunity to bring forth new conservation issues of a statewide nature to the attention of the Conservation Congress through the citizen resolution process. Please see The Conservation Congress Resolution Process, How To Write a Resolution, and Resolution Template (fillable Word document) for complete information on resolutions.
