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!
A very special conference, Saving the Sweet-Tempered Pit Bull, will be held on Saturday, March 15 from 9:30a.m. to 4:30p.m. at the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC), 3839 West Burnham Street in West Milwaukee. The event includes speakers, demonstrations and innovative programs from nationally recognized groups that have extensive experience helping Pit Bulls and building safe communities. The goal is to raise awareness about Pit Bulls, encourage people to foster and ultimately, adopt more sweet-natured Pit Bulls. Sponsors of the event include MADACC, the Wisconsin Humane Society, ASPCA, Central Bark and McCabe Group Insurance Services.
Thanks to a very loving guardian, Sammy and Adrian are still together - in their new home!
UPDATE! OATMEAL IS THRIVING IN HIS NEW HOME... AND HIS GUARDIAN IS A REAL FIREFIGHTER!
Oatmeal is the sweetest boy you could possibly imagine, plus he's got the cutest spots ever! This Dalmation is amazingly gentle, polite and well-behaved. He's 10 years old and looking for a retirement home where he'll be loved and taken care of. A brief daily walk will suffice for Oatmeal and he'd love a soft bed and some toys to play with! Give him a little affection and Oatmeal will provide you with loving companionship and be your friend forever.
Sierra is a calm dog with a very sweet, loving personality. This 6 year old American Pit Bull Terrier mix is happy to relax quietly with her family and would just as soon watch sports on TV than chase a ball herself. Sierra does enjoy short walks, but is not dog who needs to run for miles everyday. If you have a relaxed, low-key lifestyle and a lot of love to give, then this beautiful girl just may be your perfect match. Check her out at wihumane.org.
