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!
On Thursday night, fifty-five puppies and adult dogs arrived at the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) from a rural animal shelter in Kentucky. The transfer was one of the largest this year for WHS.
These lucky pups owe their good luck to the PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin’ program, who works hard to bring dogs from small, overcrowded shelters to larger shelters like the Wisconsin Humane Society that can place them in new homes. They would have likely been euthanized without this lifesaving partnership.
The pups will go through behavior evaluations on Friday morning, then head to the veterinary clinic, where they will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. You’ll have a chance to adopt one of these wonderful puppies on Saturday morning, and if you’re feeling lucky, there might be even more reasons to adopt from WHS this weekend!
Every puppy, dog and kitten adopter will get a chance to win a prize or discounts ranging from 25-100% off their adoption fee. In honor of Irish Fest, this promotion runs Friday, August 20 through Sunday, August 22.
