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! Jake was adopted on Saturday by a great young couple who report that he's already sharing the couch with the cat. Congrats, Jake!
Jake was the subject of an earlier post, which you can still read by clicking on this link, but we wanted to share a little update on this special dog. One of our volunteers spent a lot of time outside with him in the recent snows and sent a quick note: "He was so cute as he took all the fuzzy cloth toys that I tossed him and buried them in the snow... He also was burying himself in the snow and then he did the Indy 500 all around the play area about 5 to 6 times! Inside, he was an absolute angel and laid in my lap for belly rubs and lots of TLC and petting..."
Jake is still patiently waiting for a very special valentine who loves to go walking, delights in playing outside and enjoys being a consistent, nurturing teacher. Will he find a way into your heart? Check him out at www.wihumane.org.
