WISCONSIN – The Wisconsin Humane Society has reduced all adoption fees for adult dogs through this Friday, Feb. 18. Additionally, dogs who have been available for adoption for 10 days or longer, called “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.

Pet Adoptions at WHS

All pet adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis, as long as it’s a good fit.

Adoption Fees include:

  • Spay/Neuter
  • Microchipping
  • Initial vaccinations administered
  • Certificate for a free vet exam
  • Starter bag of food
