WHS Adoptable Animals

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!

Is your dog a wallflower who needs a little help coming out of his shell?

This four-week course is designed for dogs who are fearful or shy of people, other dogs, objects, noises, etc.  In these sessions, we use desensitizing and counter conditioning techniques.  You will also learn basic training cues that help your dog to build confidence and make you proud, too. The course is based on the following:
  • Identifying and understanding the TRIGGERS that cause the fear or reaction
  • Improving your LEADERSHIP skills to redirect and reinforce good behavior
  • Using CALMING techniques such as essential oils, massage and calming signals
