WHS Adoptable Animals

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 The adoptable animals' web pages are updated every 30 minutes!

55 Pups Brought to WHS

On Thursday night, fifty-five puppies and adult dogs arrived at the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) from a rural animal shelter in Kentucky. The transfer was one of the largest this year for WHS.

These lucky pups owe their good luck to the PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin’ program, who works hard to bring dogs from small, overcrowded shelters to larger shelters like the Wisconsin Humane Society that can place them in new homes. They would have likely been euthanized without this lifesaving partnership.
