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!

Shelter Dog Joins MPD!

The Wisconsin Humane Society is thrilled to announce the acceptance of one of the shelter dogs into the Milwaukee Police Department’s Vice Control Division's Drug Detection Canine Program. Dozer, a 1-year-old yellow Labrador Retriever, was chosen for training after passing aptitude and medical tests.
Detective Glen Bishop recently contacted Natalie Zielinski, WHS behavior manager, about his quest to find a dog to work in law enforcement. A rather exuberant, intelligent canine came to Zielinski’s attention and she suspected that the lab might excel in police work. Curious, confident, highly motivated and eager to learn, this smart dog fit the ideal profile.
“We have assisted the police department in finding good matches for their program in the past,” Zielinski said. “For the right dog, this opportunity is ideal. I can’t imagine a better placement for a dog like Dozer, who really needs a job, in addition to a loving guardian.  We’re so excited for him.”
Like all dogs available for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society, Dozer was neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and tested for heartworm disease.
