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!
The Dog Days of Summer are Over... but Not at the Wisconsin Humane Society.
Today, the veterinary clinic at the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) will be spaying or neutering about 40 puppies and dogs, who will be ready for adoption Friday and Saturday. They will be joining over 60 dogs currently available for adoption, and we hope to find them all homes this weekend.
“We have a very large population of puppies and dogs right now,” said Anne Reed, executive director, “and our veterinarians are working extra hard to make sure that they are all ready for adoption this weekend. We have an incredibly diverse group of puppies and dogs of all breeds and ages. They range from dogs surrendered because of financial problems, to puppies whose transfer to WHS prevented them from being euthanized at overcrowded shelters.”
The WHS clinic is a state-of-the-art operation, with four full-time veterinarians and eight veterinary staff members. The clinic treats conditions ranging from broken legs to severe trauma from abuse, and every cat, dog and rabbit is sterilized prior to adoption.
You are invited to witness the transformation of these homeless puppies as they graduate into adoption. They'll be bathed, given behavior evaluations, microchipped, photographed for the web site, examined by veterinary staff and spayed or neutered.
