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 Emotional Life of Animals

Learn the biology behind emotion in both you and your companion animal, and why it’s reasonable to believe that all mammals share the emotions of love, fear, sadness, happiness and anger. This entertaining and informative presentation includes slides and videos that illustrate what emotions really are, what emotions we share with our animals, and what ones we might not. Included is practical information about how to handle problematic emotions like fear and anger. The evening ends in a celebration of the amazing emotional bond between us and our beloved pets.
