As you change your clocks tomorrow morning for daylight savings time, don't forget to also change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector are the only things in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire or carbon monoxide problem 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whether you’re awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke or carbon monoxide, yet without a working battery, these devices cannot do their job.

Meet Hadley, a 2-year-old Chocolate Labrador Retriever!

The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) has launched a new “virtual re-homing” service for people seeking a new home for their animal. The Pets Seeking People page of the WHS web site features a listing of animals in the Milwaukee area who are in need of new homes. These animals are not in the WHS shelter, but are instead in their current homes until they find new guardians.
“We understand that people are sometimes faced with circumstances in which they can no longer keep their animal, but they prefer to find their companion a new home on their own. We are excited to offer this new free service to them, which also frees up more space in the shelter for animals who don’t already have an advocate,” said Angela Speed, director of community relations and development at WHS.
