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!
Smile for the Camera, Scout!
Is your pooch the cutest on the block? Was your kitty destined to model? The Wisconsin and Ozaukee Humane Societies invite you to send your best shot of Scout or Sassy for our 2010 calendar. Local celebrity judges will determine the top thirteen photos, and one lucky companion animal to be chosen for the highly coveted cover photo. Twelve others will be selected for “Pets of the Month.” The first 500 photographs submitted are guaranteed to be included in the calendar!
Entries are now being accepted. There is a $15 non-refundable entry fee for one photo, or $10 each for multiple entries. All proceeds from the calendar benefit the animals at the Wisconsin Humane Society. There are also advertising opportunities available to area businesses!
