31 Dogs Rescued From Brown County Residence
Wednesday evening, the Wisconsin Humane Society assisted law enforcement in the removal of 31 dogs and one parrot from a single residence in Brown County. WHS staff from our Green Bay and Door County Campuses were heartbroken to find dozens of scared pups in a single home; the conditions were deplorable. They are now recovering at the WHS Green Bay Campus, where they can receive the care they desperately need.
Most of the pups are smaller dogs resembling Australian Shepherds, although there are also a few larger dogs; the majority of them are adults. Today we are focused on making sure they receive initial exams, a safe and comfortable place to relax, and any emergency care they need. None of them are available for adoption at this time; we cannot pursue adoption until they are surrendered by the owner, or the case works itself through the legal process. We're not sure how long they will be with us, but if you can help with a donation of any size toward their food, medical care, and supplies, it would be deeply appreciated.

If you believe someone is struggling with animal hoarding, it’s important to reach out for help. It’s a serious mental health problem that can quickly spiral out of control, affecting not only the animals, but the owners, their families and community. Call your local law enforcement, animal welfare organization, health department or mental health agency for supportive resources.
