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!
This 7.5-year-old Siamese cat will also gently nudge your hand to encourage you to pet her. In addition to her sparkling personality, Baby has beautiful cream and black fur. Her luminous blue eyes are stunning and they will sparkle even more when she gets adopted!
Ursula is like a giant puppy. Happy, energetic, curious and loving, this black Labrador Retriever will have you laughing several times a day. She is 4 years young and wants to play and run all morning long, then flop on her doggie bed for a nap. She's a riot to hang out with and performs silly antics. A good teacher will have no trouble teaching Ursula new skills and manners; she'd love to enroll in a manners class where she could show off her skills, too!
Comet has one of those amazing personalities. He's a confident, up-front kind of guy who immediately comes up and introduces himself. He seems to be oblivious that he's so handsome and unique-looking. His markings include blue patches of fur that create cool shapes on his back. Comet's face looks like it's been painted!
Comet was previously declawed, so it's especially imperative that he always stays indoors where he'll be safe. He seems to get along well with his roommate and would likely adjust fine to a home with another cat. This photo, actually, was taken when Comet was concerned about a little kitten meowing next door (the kitty was a bit lonely because her sister had just been adopted, but she went home moments later, so no worries!). Still, Comet stood up on his hind legs to make sure she was okay!
Bongo never pounds on the drums or makes much noise, except for the occasional squeal of delight when you allow him to climb onto your lap for a intensive belly rub session! It's surprising that this stunning Australian Shepherd mix is only 7 months old, because he has a rather mature disposition. He's thoughtful, kind and always polite with strangers. He's curious but cautious in his explorations around our neighborhood and doesn't pull hard on the leash or jump up on strangers. Bongo always delights in returning to his suite for a cuddling session afterwards, too!
