WHS reduces dog adoption fees by 50% through Friday, February 18

Looking for love this Valentine’s Day? 

WISCONSIN - Looking for unconditional love this Valentine’s Day? The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is excited to help you on that quest and have announced that all adoption fees for adult dogs have been reduced by 50% through Friday, February 18. Dogs who have been available for adoption for 10 days or longer, dubbed “Benchwarmers,” have fees of just $25. 

Across the organization’s five campuses, there are nearly 40 dogs available for adoption, including several dogs who have unique behavioral or medical conditions that make finding a good match a bit more challenging. WHS hopes that this special promotion will inspire potential adopters to consider taking the leap and bringing home a new canine companion. 

Adoptions at WHS are first-come, first-served, as long as it’s a good fit. As part of the adoption fee, dogs available for adoption been spayed or neutered, microchipped, and have received initial vaccinations. Adopters also go home with a certificate for a free vet exam and a starter bag of food. For information about available animals and the adoption process at each location, please visit
