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!
Meet Henry. He's a 10-year-old senior Beagle who enjoys a daily stroll and fine dining. This sweet dog does best with older kids and he'd excel with a companion who would enjoy teaching him new cues and tricks. He deserves to be the center of your attention and would prefer to be the only canine in your heart and home! Henry was surrendered to us because he "wasn't a good hunting dog," but we can attest to the fact that he is a world-class, champion snuggler.
Learn more about Henry or meet him at the Wisconsin Humane Society, 45th & Wisconsin Avenue. Would he be a good match for you?

In April, a driver killed their mom on Highway 100 when they were only one day old. But on Thursday at 11:00 a.m., all fourteen babies were released back into the wild with a brand new future! Thanks to everyone who helped the baby ducklings with a donation for their care.
See more pictures of their release in Greenfield yesterday.
