Violet - Foster to Adopt!

Hi! I'm looking for a special foster home and I'm hoping you might be the one! I am currently being treated for heartworm disease, so I'm not quite ready for adoption. Heartworm is a blood parasite that can be transmitted to dogs through a mosquito bite. It can take several months after infection before a heartworm test will display as positive. Heartworm disease can cause respiratory issues, heart failure, and if left untreated, death. Fortunately for me, I'm in great hands and the Wisconsin Humane Society has started me on treatment to get rid of my heartworms. Treatment is successful in most cases, but can pose some risks, and I'm looking for a foster home to see me through my treatment before I embark on my adoption journey! If you are interested in fostering me (and let's be honest, who wouldn't be?) then email our Foster Team at foster@wihumane.org! P.S. if you decide I might be a good permanent fit after my treatment is completed, please let us know!

Before your visit, please read our adoption process and fill out an adoption profile. Please note that the adopter profile is not an application, but rather some basic information we'll use during your visit to help you make a great match.

Sponsor animals in need!

From food to vaccines, collars to beds, medical care to behavioral support… this work is critical to homeless animals in our community, but the expenses add up quickly. Please consider sponsoring some of the costs of care for animals at WHS!

Please Note

Every animal is an individual and WHS works hard to make great matches for our animals and adopters.  Some animals may have placement restrictions or requirements established by WHS based on shelter observations and previous home histories.  When meeting with your adoption counselor, they review each animal’s medical, behavior, and placement needs with you to help you find an animal who is compatible with your home environment and your lifestyle.  There are no time limits at WHS, all animals in adoption have as long as it takes to find a new loving home.  Stop in and speak with our adoption counseling team today – we look forward to meeting with you.
