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!
Caravan of Costumed Canines
Come watch four-legged ghouls and goblins stroll down Wisconsin Avenue at the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Halloween parade! On Friday, October 30 at 1:00 p.m., see little lobsters, princesses, rock stars and other dogs-in-disguise strut their stuff.
All the dogs in the parade will be walked by cats, so you don’t want to stray from this photo opportunity! Plus, all of the dogs are available for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society.
The public is invited to the parade, which will include treats for kids and pumpkin decorating, too!
