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!

CPR Course and First Aid for Pets

He was alone, abused, and helpless. A little grey and black tabby was living outside, which wasn’t ideal. But his circumstances went from bad to worse when a couple of kids forced his body to the ground and cut off his whiskers. Then they tried to drown the poor boy.
A sweet Miniature Schnauzer pup arrived at WHS with a lame rear leg, hobbling unsteadily as if her leg wasn’t there at all. When our veterinarian did x-rays, she found that Ruffles had broken her leg not long before arriving at WHS. It’s scary to think about the force that was needed to break the sweet girl’s leg. She had to have been terrified and in great pain.
Looking for a young pooch? There are several puppies at WHS right now looking for loving homes. Meet Tina, Tatum and Tonya, three Chihuahua puppies! Looking for a larger breed dog? Eve and Eva are two Great Pyrenees mix sisters who are also available. Plus, we have Labrador Retriever mix puppies, and some really special adult dogs who already know the ropes! See all the available dogs (updated every 20-30 minutes) here: http://wihumane.org/animals/dogs.aspx.
We are open 10-8 Tues - Fri; 10-6 Sat; 11-5 Sunday.
The Wisconsin Humane Society is hoping to place hundreds of homeless animals into loving homes in December. What better way to express the spirit and compassion of the holiday season than by helping an animal find a home? For many families that are taking vacation time to spend at home this season, there is no better time to adopt.
