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!
You may not be able to tell from her photos, but Amelia is nearly 100 lbs... of pure love! She's what dog people call a "leaner," a dog who loves to brush up against you and lean into your body, wanting to be as close to you as possible. Amelia loves to be cuddled, brushed, nuzzled and given belly rubs. At 3.5 years old, this Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier prefers praise over toys and slow walks over triathalons. She likes to play with the occasional plush toy but isn't very fond of fetching or aerobic exercise.
Despite her fondness for the low key lifestyle, Amelia is in great shape and has a gorgeous, shiny black coat with unique white patches on her chest and paws. Amelia is also very bright and enjoys learning new tricks. She'll be a star in Manner's Class and already knows "sit" and "down."
