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!
Looking for a puppy, like Poco? He'll melt away your winter blues, keep you fit all year round and brighten up every morning with exuberant kisses. It's a joy to raise a puppy into a happy adult and there is no better time to adopt than right now! Poco, an 8-week-old Labrador Retriever mix, is among many other puppies hoping to find homes for the holidays.
The Wisconsin Humane Society hopes that if you are looking for a puppy or younger dog, you'll check out local shelters and rescue groups in lieu of heading to the pet store. Most puppies at large pet stores come from large-scale breeding facilities that ignore the social, emotional and physical needs of dogs. The pups may look cute, but their parents are suffering back at the mill. Don't support this cycle! Adopt a shelter dog and save more than one life.
