Hank raising thousands of dollars for WI Humane Society

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Since becoming the Brewers' unofficial mascot, Hank the dog has helped raise thousands of dollars for the Wisconsin Humane Society.

The team says everything from Hank T-shirts, to plush toys are flying off the shelves, and 20% of those sales goes straight to the animal shelter.

With about 20,000 animals a year coming through, Jenny Mueller with the humane society says it'll be put to good use.

"Our medical costs are going up and up as we see more challenged animals coming into the shelter system. So this money will help us to serve even more animals."

The humane society and the Brewers say it's not just about the Hank swag.

Their goal is to treat animals with respect and kindness, and raise awareness of shelters, and animals in need.
