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!
Do you have a handsome lobster outfit like the one modeled by Nimbus? Dig out the doggie costumes and head to Halloween Howl!!! It's the premier Halloween event for dogs and their humans, featuring a canine costume contest, tricks for treats, bobbing for hot dogs, a bone dig and more! The little sheriffs and ballerinas are well worth the $20 registration fee, which goes right back to the animals at the shelter. There are two sessions this year on October 17, too! Sign up for 6:00 p.m. - 7:15 p.m. or the later session from 7:45 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Dog must be well-socialized for this indoor event. Register here!
