Wisconsin Humane Society launches “virtual re-homing” service
MILWAUKEE - The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) has launched a new “virtual re-homing” service for people seeking a new home for their animal. The Pets Seeking People page of the WHS web site features a listing of animals in the Milwaukee area who are in need of new homes. These animals are not in the WHS shelter, but are instead in their current homes until they find new guardians.
“We understand that people are sometimes faced with circumstances in which they can no longer keep their animal, but they prefer to find their companion a new home on their own. We are excited to offer this new free service to them, which also frees up more space in the shelter for animals who don’t already have an advocate,” said Angela Speed, director of community relations and development at WHS.
If you are interested in listing your companion animal on the WHS website, visit http://savinglives.wihumane.org/site/PageNavigator/Rehoming. The posting and pictures will be reviewed by staff and posted within 48 hours of submission.
If you are seeking to adopt a new companion, there are many wonderful animals already posted on the Pets Seeking People page, in addition to the many homeless animals at the shelter. Visit www.wihumane.org for more information.
