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!
Cat Season in Full Swing
Wisconsin Humane Society seeing dramatic increase in cats and kittens
The Wisconsin Humane Society reports that it currently has over 300 cats in its care at the Milwaukee and Ozaukee locations, and over 100 kittens and cats are ready to go home today. The shelter has launched a promotion in which the fee for a second kitten adoption is 50% off, and fees for adult cats are entirely waived. The shelter hopes to see all 300 cats go home this month.
“It’s a great time to adopt a cat or kitten! There is an enormous variety of cats and kittens available,” says Angela Speed, director of community relations. “Not only will your adoption provide an animal a loving home, but it will open up more space for us to take in more cats and kittens.” The Milwaukee shelter is currently asking the public to call and schedule appointments for cat surrenders unless the surrender is due to an emergency.
The shelter is open Tuesday – Friday 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.; Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. See available animals (updated every 20-30 minutes) at www.wihumane.org.
