WHS has an unusually high population of dogs (87 available), and they hope this inspires people to consider opening their hearts and homes to a new friend this Memorial Day weekend.
“Our current dog population isn’t a result of a hoarding or seizure situation, and it’s not unusual to see slows adoptions during the first nice stretch of weather in Wisconsin. But we have a LOT of dogs, and we need the community’s help in getting these lovebugs home.”
At WHS, the average stay on the adoption floor for a dog is about 1.5 days, but there are more than a dozen dogs who have been at the shelter for several weeks, even a couple months in a few cases.
WHS opens at 12pm in Milwaukee and 2pm in Racine and Saukville. You can view all available dogs by clicking this link: Wisconsin Humane Society available loveable dogs for adoption
