Donation to help Coulee Humane Society get ducks in a row with better enclosures

Wildlife program is funded largely with community donations

ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) — A big check will help some small bills — on ducks.

La Crosse’s 95.7’s “Rock Foundation” presented a $800 donation to the Coulee Region Humane Society’s Wildlife program.

The money will be used to improve duckling enclosures.

Animal Control rescues and rehabilitates numerous orphaned and injured ducklings.

In 2021 , the program took in 324 ducklings — about 100 more than the previous year.

While the society has a structure now, it needs to plan for the future.

“It’s good but it’s not good enough,” said animal control officer Kathy Kasakaitas. “And it’s not big enough. So just always planning ahead for improvements on better care and better housing for the animals.”

The wildlife program is funded largely with community donations, which can be made online.
