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!
Halloween is almost here, and to celebrate, the Wisconsin Humane Society will be hosting Halloween Howl 2009! You are invited to bring your dog-friendly dogs for a party at the Wisconsin Humane Society. This howling night will include a canine costume contest, tricks for treats, bobbing for hot dogs, a bone dig and more. There will be prizes and treats for dogs and people, too! Dogs are encouraged to come in costume! Halloween Howl is on Tuesday, October 27 at the Wisconsin Humane Society. The Early Party will take place from 5:45 p.m.-7:00 p.m. and the late party from 7:30 p.m.- 8:45 p.m. To purchase a ticket for the Halloween Howl, please visit www.wihumane.org. All proceeds from the event go right back to help animals at the shelter.
