Wisconsin animal welfare agencies and adoption resources

Is the Wisconsin Humane Society a statewide organization?

No. WHS operates 5 sheltering locations in Racine, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Green Bay, and Door County, as well as our Spay/Neuter Clinic and Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. Our name can be confusing for those who aren't familiar with us, but we were founded as the Wisconsin Humane Society in 1879 when we were the only animal welfare organization in the state. In relatively recent history, four other shelters have reached out to us asking to merge, leading to our current locations. Aside from our five campuses, every other shelter in the state (and in most states) operates independently from one another, and there is no national affiliation or umbrella group.
