WHS Adoptable Animals

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 The adoptable animals' web pages are updated every 30 minutes!

Spay Day offers low-cost surgeries for cats

The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) invites low-income cat guardians to have their cat spayed or neutered in celebration of Spay Day USA on Tuesday, February 22, 2011.  Spay Day USA is a national day of action to reduce animal overpopulation and thus, prevent animal suffering.

Guardians will be charged veterinary fees on a sliding scale ranging from only $10 and up, based on family income, size and other factors. Last year on Spay Day alone, WHS spayed 110 animals!  WHS veterinarians, volunteer veterinarians and WHS vet technicians all contribute to this impressive effort.
