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 The adoptable animals' web pages are updated every 30 minutes!

ADOPTED! Double the fun

BJ and PeeWee are 8-year-old Schipperkes who are seeking a family with room for two!  These inseparable sisters will keep you laughing as they play together with their favorite squeaky toys.  At 8-years-old, they already know the ropes and understand basic cues like "sit" and "come."  You'd never guess that they are 8-years-old, despite the cute gray beards they've both developed.  These two are quite spunky, outgoing and play off each other's energy in very silly displays of play.

Calvin is never far behind Hobbes and will eagerly crawl into your lap for chin rubs and neck scratches.

These amazing cats have lived together their whole lives and have formed a deep bond of love and friendship. We don't want to split them up. Do you have the room in your heart and home for two? See them at

Good-humored Gloria

Gloria is a gorgeous 10-month-old Pit-Bull mix. A sweet-tempered girl, Gloria is full of friendliness. She is enormously affectionate and would be a very loving companion animal. She likes nothing more than a nice game of fetch and some playtime outdoors. Gloria has good manners and is quite polite.This well-behaved Pit Bull mix would fit in perfectly with a family who is happy to make the commitment for training, exercise and of course some time spent snuggling. Like all of the dogs at the Wisconsin Humane Society, Gloria has been spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. Crazy about Gloria? Check her out on our site, which is updated every 30 minutes, so you can always see who is available for adoption before you drop in to visit us at 4500 West Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee.
