Wisconsin Humane Society needs volunteers to foster these animals

Like everybody right now, the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is navigating the challenges of Covid-19. Amid pandemic-related volunteer and staff shortages, WHS announced today that it will be closing its Racine, Ozaukee and Door County campuses to adoption.

Those locations will still be open for surrender intake by appointment, but for the near future adoption will only be offered at the humane society's Milwaukee and Green Bay campuses.

To help offset their staffing shortages, WHS has also reiterated the need for volunteers to foster animals. Interested volunteers can sign up here; the process takes about 15 minutes.

You can browse some of the foster candidates here. Foster parents get first dibs on adopting their animal if they choose.

And, of course, the humane society has plenty of animals ready for adoption right now, too. You can browse them here.
