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!
A very special conference, Saving the Sweet-Tempered Pit Bull, will be held on Saturday, March 15 from 9:30a.m. to 4:30p.m. at the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC), 3839 West Burnham Street in West Milwaukee. The event includes speakers, demonstrations and innovative programs from nationally recognized groups that have extensive experience helping Pit Bulls and building safe communities. The goal is to raise awareness about Pit Bulls, encourage people to foster and ultimately, adopt more sweet-natured Pit Bulls. Sponsors of the event include MADACC, the Wisconsin Humane Society, ASPCA, Central Bark and McCabe Group Insurance Services.
To register for the event, go to www.wihumane.org or call 414-ANIMALS. The fee is $10 and includes lunch and refreshments. It is limited to the first 50 people. For more information about the event, including directions, please contact MADACC at 414-649-8640.
