Tom Forrer Memorial Fund
Tom E. Forrer was born on March 6, 1944, and died at his rural Ettrick farm on June 5, 2022. Tom served as chairman of the Trempealeau County Humane
Society for many years. He was instrumental in the building of our current location between Blair & Ettrick. Tom adopted the first dog (Sparky) ever placed
under protection of the shelter. Sparky was found starving and vermin-infested near Strum in 2004. Sparky lived with Tom until Sparky passed in September 2016.
Tom's passion for animals continues with the Tom Forrer Memorial Fund. The fund assists lower income families with spay/neuter costs for their dog. If you are interested in applying for these funds, please complete and return the application below to our shelter.
