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!
Last night's transfer couldn't have been cuter! We were delighted to welcome dozens of dogs and puppies to Milwaukee, all of whom will soon be in new loving homes. Plus, WHS set a new record today! The veterinary staff performed 67 spay/neuter surgeries on adoptable animals this morning, topping the 2009 record of 65 surgeries. Three full-time veterinarians and several support staff aided in the surgeries.
The puppies and dogs will be available for adoption starting Saturday at both the Wisconsin and Ozaukee Humane Societies. The available animals pages at www.wihumane.org and www.ozaukeehumane.org are updated every 30 minutes, so bookmark them and share!
