You may have heard that across the country animal shelters have been reaching capacity limits and are trying to get more pets out the door and into loving homes. Locally, this issue is no different as the campuses of the Wisconsin Humane Society are starting to take in more and more animals, without sending some animals home with new owners. Some common reasons dogs and other animals end up in shelters can be due to things like lifestyle changes, owners losing their jobs, and health problems. Across the organization's five campuses, there are approximately 40 dogs that are available for adoption. One of the challenges that comes with trying to find these dogs new homes is that some of them have behavioral or medical conditions that make finding a match a little more difficult. To help this issue, the Wisconsin Humane Society has announced that they are cutting dog adoption fees by 50% through February 18th. Dogs that have been available for adoption for 10 days or longer will have adoption fees of only $25. Adoptions at WHS are on a first-come, first-served basis, as long as it’s a good fit. As part of the adoption fee, dogs available for adoption have been spayed or neutered and have received initial vaccinations. When a dog is adopted, the owner will also go home with a certificate for a free vet exam and a starter bag of food.
