WHS Adoptable Animals

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!

Caravan of Costumed Canines

Come watch four-legged ghouls and goblins stroll down Wisconsin Avenue at the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Halloween parade! On Friday, October 24 at 12:00 p.m., see little lobsters, princesses, rock stars and other dogs-in-disguise strut their stuff.   All the dogs in the parade will be walked by cats, so you don’t want to stray from this photo opportunity!  Plus, they are all available for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society.  The public is invited to this free parade and treats for our little trick-or-treaters would be much appreciated! They love Lean Pupperoni or other soft, healthy dog treats.    WHAT:            Halloween Dog Parade  WHERE:         Wisconsin Humane Society, 4500 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, WI    WHEN:            Friday, October 24, 2008 12:00 noon  

The WHS Halloween Parade is one of several fun events offered at the Wisconsin Humane this month.  October is Adopt-a-Dog Month and the Wisconsin and Ozaukee Humane Societies are hoping to place 500 dogs in new homes in just 31 days! Many of the dogs available for adoption are some of the last remaining that were rescued from Puppy Haven Kennels, the largest breeding facility in Wisconsin, when WHS closed the operation to find good homes for them.
