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!
Looking for a puppy? The Wisconsin Humane Society has many adorable pups looking for new homes. Vanessa, an 8-week-old Shepherd mix, is just one of the cuties looking for a new home.
She will brighten your winter with her silly antics, keep you toasty warm, and will help you cheerlead during the big game this weekend. Not only can your family bring home a new companion today, you can also enroll in a Puppy ABC class, held at WHS!
We are open Tues-Fri 10-9, Sat 10-6 and Sun 11-5, and located at 4500 W. Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee.
