The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness. For more than 128 years, WHS has been saving the lives of animals in need. We offer adoption services that place 9,000 animals in new homes annually, veterinary services that save thousands of lives, educational programs that instill respect for animals, behavior services to assist guardians and a myriad of other initiatives that help end suffering for animals. We depend entirely on private donations to fund our programs and rely on volunteers in nearly every department. If you are interested in adopting, volunteering, enrolling in a class, taking a tour or making a donation, check out our comprehensive web site at wihumane.org. The adoptable animals' web pages are updated every 30 minutes!
Nearly 100 dogs available at the Wisconsin Humane Society
The Wisconsin Humane Society reports that there are nearly 100 dogs and puppies available for adoption at their Milwaukee and Ozaukee campuses, making this the largest number of dogs they’ve had at one time all year. With four additional transfers scheduled to arrive next week, the organization expects their number of available dogs to remain high in days to come.
Some of these lucky pups owe their good fortune to the PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin’ program, which works hard to bring dogs from small, overcrowded shelters to larger shelters like the Wisconsin Humane Society who can place them in new homes.
“October happens to be National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, so we’re hoping that families in our community will open their hearts and homes to the many wonderful dogs and puppies currently in our care,” said Anne Reed, executive director at WHS.
WHS encourages potential adopters to visit their websites or stop by the Milwaukee or Saukville shelters if they’re interested in adopting an animal.
