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!
Wisconsin Humane Society Rolls Back Dog and Puppy Adoption Fees
Some Fees Drop to 6-Year Low
It’s would be a dream at the Wisconsin Humane Society to have a "Going Out of Business" Sale. It would mean that our work is done. All animals would have a loving, committed family with the resources to care for them forever. Everyone in our community would value animals and treat them with kindness and respect.
While we’re on the right track, WHS is not yet ready to go out of business. But we can help animals find loving homes even faster this spring, by rolling back our adoption fees for dogs and puppies (some to levels not seen in over 6 years!).
“The community is still pulling out of the economic downturn and we have found that reduced fees are an incentive for some families looking to add a new furry family member to their lives,” said Alison Fotsch, counseling services manager.
Fees still vary by dog, and most Rollback fees range from $109-289. Each dog's profile reflects the reduced fee. View dogs and puppies at wihumane.org.
Included in all dog adoptions are spay/neuter surgery, first distemper vaccination, initial deworming, micro-chip implant, heartworm testing, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, and a 30-day gift of ShelterCare Pet Insurance with a valid email address.
*SPECIAL ADOPTION HOURS: WHS will be open on Monday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in honor of President’s Day. The shelter is normally closed on Mondays.
