WISCONSIN HUMANE SOCIETY HOSTS FIRST-EVER
BOW WOW BLIZZARD CAMP
MILWAUKEE – The Wisconsin Humane Society is hosting its first-ever Bow Wow Blizzard Camp today at 4500 W. Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee. This new one-day winter camp at WHS is for 20 children ages 8 to 11 years old who love animals. It's a wonderful way for kids to learn all about the Wisconsin Humane Society and ways that they can help critters of all different shapes and sizes. There will be a variety of humane activities offered throughout the day including crafts, games, a behind-the-scenes tour and even a chance to meet some of the animal guests at the Wisconsin Humane Society.
