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!
Max Needs Some Spring Cheer
When our veterinarians approach this tiny puppy in the Intensive Care Unit of WHS, they are welcomed by the thump-thump-thump of Max’s tail. Despite his painful fall from a porch and missing front leg, Max enthusiastically greets his visitors.
He wasn’t always so cheerful. Max arrived at WHS in bad shape. The three-month-old Terrier mix so severely fractured his leg that our only option was to amputate. The surgery, however, saved his life. After he is fully recovered, Max will move into our regular adoption program and he'll begin a happier journey with a new family.
We were only able to help because of donations from people like you. We do not receive government funding and depend on the community’s support to fund all of our lifesaving initiatives, including the care provided to Max. The cost of his surgery and medical care is expected to reach $1,500.
