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!
Mark your calendars! The Ozaukee Humane Society will be hosting an Open House from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 4. Participate in fun activities for both kids and dogs, learn about the new shelter planned for Ozaukee County, meet adoptable animals and more! All activities will be free, although monetary donations for the new OHS shelter are encouraged.
There will be interactive activities for dogs, adults and children, including:
• Pet Costume Contest
• Bone Dig
• Hot Dog Bobbing
• Kids Crafts
• Face Painting
• Spin the Wheel for prizes
• Jackson Paw-lock Paw Paintings
• Plus much, much more!
The architectural plans for the new shelter in Saukville will also be on display for the general public. Well-socialized, vaccinated dogs are welcome to attend. For more information about this event, or to view available animals for adoption, visit www.ozaukeehumane.org or call (262) 377-7580.
