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!
UPDATE! This sweet dog went home to a great family thrilled with their new companion!
Mattie is an amazing dog. Not only is she absolutely adorable with her huge brown eyes and funny markings on her rump, she is wise beyond her 1.2 years. This lovely dog recently attended a special seminar with 100 human guests and she was the best behaved of everyone! She greeted each person with kisses, never barked during presentations and somehow had the self-control to avoid the cheese and avocado subs (although there is photographic evidence that her human cohorts tossed some provolone her way)!
Mattie is a 1 year old American Pitbull Terrier mix. She is gentle, affectionate and eager to please. Mattie already knows how to sit, shake and stay. In addition, she has been previously housetrained. Mattie would do great with a loving guardian who can spend time playing outside, hanging out on the couch or simply going for a car ride, which Mattie loves.
