Twenty-five dogs are calling Door County home for a while and that is a positive for the Wisconsin Humane Society. The humane society campuses in Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Door, and Brown Counties joined forces over a year ago to help cut down on administrative costs and increase its care for animals. The collaboration is why stays for cats at the Wisconsin Humane Society Door County campus have dropped from 40 to 27 days and from 16 to 11 days for dogs. Angela Speed from the Wisconsin Humane Society says it also makes it easier to move animals around when quarantines are needed like what happened recently in Sheboygan and Waukesha.
The quarantine was needed after two dogs were discovered in southeastern Wisconsin with the contagious Canine Brucellosis illness. Speed says none of the dogs at the Door County campus have the illness and could really use some new toys and peanut butter while they wait to be adopted.
