The homeless animals of Wisconsin got a lot of support on Saturday.

The Humane Society of Douglas County held the Eighth Annual Paws for Love fundraiser. Nearly 170 people attended to bid on dozens of auction items.

Humane Society President Michelle Porter said this is an important time for them.

"We are on a new adventure," she said. "Starting in about six days we're going to be taking over the city animals, plus continuing taking over the county animals. So we are working really hard to build a new shelter and hope to be in it by next summer."

Porter said when all is said and done, the Humane Society of Douglas County will be caring for 1,200 pets.
