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!
The Wisconsin Humane Society will be shining brightly this holiday season with more than 5,000 holiday lights in honor of homeless animals on Sunday, December 7. The Hope’s Lights Celebration will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Wisconsin Humane Society, 4500 W. Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee.
In addition to the building and grounds being brilliantly illuminated with lights, the celebration will include activities such as programs featuring tours of WHS and appearances by several furry and featured guests. Sign up online.
