From the Wisconsin Humane Society-Underweight and distrustful of people, Tres and Pickles have some obstacles to climb, but they can do it with your help. They were among the most frightened of the 18 pups we rescued on Monday from a hoarding situation. But yesterday afternoon, little Tres left the security of his carrier, too curious about the soft voice that was coaxing him out with a tasty treat. It’s a small step for Tres, but it brought tears to our eyes.
Nearly all the pups are shy and fearful, having been deprived of human contact and normal socialization opportunities. Our “RELAX dog socializers” will be reading to them so they can get used to different human voices, which will help to boost their confidence when they encounter new people.
Some of the dogs may be ready for adoption later this week (no holds are being taken for them), and others will take several days, or even weeks, before they are ready.
Interested in becoming a foster parent? If you’d like to sign up for a foster information session, there is one offered next Monday, March 22. RSVP here: WHS FOSTER INFO SESSION . Foster is one of our highest needs and we always have a need for people willing to open up their homes to sick and injured animals who would recover best in a home environment.
Can you make a donation to support their medical care? SUPPORT THE CHIS. WHS doesn’t receive general government funding and is not part of any national group, so as an independent nonprofit, we depend on the support of the public (that’s you!) to provide lifesaving services for animals.
Thank you for your amazing and generous support of Tres, Pickles and all their friends.
