The Dog Days of Summer are Over...
but Not at the Wisconsin Humane Society
MILWAUKEE – Today, the veterinary clinic at the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) will be spaying or neutering about 40 puppies and dogs, who will be ready for adoption Friday and Saturday. They will be joining over 60 dogs currently available for adoption, and the society hopes to find them all homes this weekend.
“We have a very large population of puppies and dogs right now,” said Anne Reed, executive director, “and our veterinarians are working extra hard to make sure that they are all ready for adoption this weekend. We have an incredibly diverse group of puppies and dogs of all breeds and ages. They range from dogs surrendered because of financial problems, to puppies whose transfer to WHS prevented them from being euthanized at overcrowded shelters.”
The WHS clinic is a state-of-the-art operation, with four full-time veterinarians and eight veterinary staff members. The clinic treats conditions ranging from broken legs to severe trauma from abuse, and every cat, dog and rabbit is sterilized prior to adoption.
You are invited to witness the transformation of these homeless puppies as they graduate into adoption. They'll be bathed, given behavior evaluations, microchipped, photographed for the web site, examined by veterinary staff and spayed or neutered.
