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

Are animals emotional beings?

Wisconsin Humane Society Speaker Series
Marc Bekoff - Expanding our Compassion Footprint 
Thursday, August 2, 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Location: Radisson Mayfair

 

The latest and greatest scientific research clearly shows that animals are smart, emotional, and moral beings. And there are many "surprises." Birds make and use more sophisticated tools than chimpanzees, mice and chickens display empathy, and ravens and other animals show they know what's right and wrong in various social situations. Animals care very much about what happens to them and to their friends and we must too. We need to be very careful when we intrude into their lives and redecorate nature. Rewilding our hearts and expanding our compassion footprint provide avenues for fostering more respect for nonhuman beings and for peaceful coexistence with our animal friends.
 
Marc Bekoff, noted author, will discuss these and other topics at a seminar on Thursday, August 2 from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. at the Radisson.
