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!
Entries are now being accepted for the Wisconsin Humane Society's 2012 Calendar Contest!
One lucky critter will be chosen for the highly coveted cover photo and twelve others will be selected as a "Pet of the Month." . The first 500 photographs submitted are guaranteed to be included in the calendar, and thousands of copies of the calendar will be printed.
There is a $10 nonrefundable entry fee for each photo, and all proceeds from the calendar benefit the animals at the Milwaukee and Ozaukee Campuses. Local celebrity judges will determine the top 13 photos. Be sure to read the contest guidelines at www.wihumane.org or www.ozaukeehumane.org and submit your photo. The deadline is September 16.
