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!
Jake is a treasured dog among the staff and volunteer dog walkers at the Wisconsin Humane Society. He always greets you with a huge smile, like you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to him. A bad day at work or school is quickly cured by his cheerful demeanor and eagerness to entertain you. Jake LOVES to go for walks and play in the snow, regardless of the temperature. He is an active, silly boy who thinks independently yet cherishes the companionship of humans.
Jake is a 2 ½ year old Labrador Retriever/Newfoundland mix. He’s been called a “goofy newfie” on more than one occasion. He enjoys the pursuit of tennis balls and proudly demonstrates his ability to catch balls mid-air. This seventy pound dog is also very affectionate and loving; after a good bout of exercise, Jake adores getting tummy rubs and ear scratches. Jake will undoubtedly bring great joy into someone’s life.
Does he sound like a good match for you? Check him out at www.wihumane.org or call 414-ANIMALS for adoption information.
Jake, like many dogs, barrels through snow piles with glee and is entranced by snow falling from the sky. However, all dog guardians should be aware that cold weather can be very dangerous for dogs. From frostbite and cracked paws to antifreeze and sidewalk salt, winter can pose many threats to your dog’s safety. Check out cold weather safety tips at the WHS web site.
