This week’s featured pet from the Wisconsin Humane Society is Venus. This 1-year-old sweetheart loves to run on his wheel, eat tasty treats, and take long naps. Venus would love to find a home with you and show you just how much fun he can be! 

This super cool mouse is available for adoption from the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Foster Program and has a name-your-own adoption fee! If you’re interested in meeting Venus, please reach out to his foster parent by visiting the Humane Society’s adoption page today.
