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!
Classical Concert for Canines at Lakefront
Bring your dog to celebrate the Labor Day weekend with Milwaukee’s free “Classical Concert for Canines” at the new Coast Guard Pavilion, 1700 N. Lincoln Memorial Drive, on Friday, September 4 at 5:00 p.m. Cellist Jane Hollander and pianist Wayne Wildman will perform. The first eight donors of $25 or more to WHS can make a "doggie dedication" on-screen during the concert. Those interested in showing a photo of their pet for the "doggie dedication" should bring a flash drive with an electronic image of their dog, and a few sentences describing their pooch!
