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!
Update! Riggins was adopted by a great family.
Riggins is a 7-year-old Cocker Spaniel who came to WHS as a stray. He's such a sweet boy and loves to be brushed and petted. Riggins is playful, but doesn't bounce off the walls like his younger friends. Polite, gentle and quiet, Riggins would be a great first dog for just about any family. If you have kids, though, make sure to bring them to WHS to meet any future addition to the family before bringing him home. If you are interested in Riggins, stop by this weekend! It may be cold, but Riggins will warm your heart.
