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!
UPDATE: These four have been adopted, but keep checking the site. We are closed on Mondays, but check back every day to see the new pups available for adoption.
Meet Mae. She's the kind of girl willing to throw all caution against the wind and propel herself through the air, across the room and into unknown territory simply to catch that sneaky catnip mouse. Mae is also a very lovely feline with round emerald eyes and a dense tiger-striped coat. She's a healthy weight and maintains her figure by practicing gymnastics.
Mario met his match and went home last weekend with a great family!
You may not be able to tell from her photos, but Amelia is nearly 100 lbs... of pure love! She's what dog people call a "leaner," a dog who loves to brush up against you and lean into your body, wanting to be as close to you as possible. Amelia loves to be cuddled, brushed, nuzzled and given belly rubs. At 3.5 years old, this Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier prefers praise over toys and slow walks over triathalons. She likes to play with the occasional plush toy but isn't very fond of fetching or aerobic exercise.
