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!
Ben is a very special dog looking for an equally special guardian. We had a specialist examine the 1.5-year-old Labrador Retriever/Corgi mix because one of his front legs shows signs of lameness. The specialist said that he's not in any pain, but Ben could require surgery in the near future and further diagnostic tests are recommended. We want to find an adopter willing to make that commitment. Believe us, Ben is worth it! Check out his YouTube video and fall in love (or just stop by the Wisconsin Humane Society at 45th & Wisconsin to meet him!).
