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!
We just picked up this sweet Collie puppy from MADACC this week and she needs your help. There is a local campaign to raise funds to help cover the cost of her surgery to repair a fractured pelvis. Learn more here: http://saveourcol

Wisconsin Humane Society – Milwaukee Campus, 4500 W. Wisconsin Avenue
De-stress your dog and yourself with the therapeutic effects of Tellington Touch (TTouch).
Tellington Touch is a gentle and easy to learn method of touch and movement. TTouch can help with challenges such as barking, biting, chewing, digging, noise sensitivity, aging, anxiety, aggressive or reactive behavior, shyness, grooming or vet visit concerns and more!
This workshop is for dogs of all ages and their families to discuss what causes stress, signs of stress and how you can help free yourself and your dog from it.
This two-hour hands-on session with your dog will introduce you to the benefits of incorporating TTouch into your pet’s life and will help you and your pet achieve the highest quality of life through mental, physical and emotional balance.
TTouch uses gentle movements and manipulations that help change behavior patterns and teach the animal to think, rather than react, improves learning ability and performance and helps to calm and focus. Register here.
