Pet Adoption of Wisconsin

This Pet Adoption of Wisconsin page is focused on shelters and pet rescues in Wisconsin. There are a lot of places to consider and I have summarized some of them here to help you in your search for a pet that you will love.

Pet Adoption of Wisconsin SPCA and Humane Societies

If you are going to adopt a pet in Wisconsin I suggest that you consider a local Humane Society or SPCA. The SPCA and Humane Societies do their best to save pets lives and have the best interests of animals at heart.

It has always upset me that animals are euthanized in some shelters. Maybe you feel that way too? I have realized that this is usually reserved for very aggressive or ill animals. I try to focus on ways that animals can be best cared for and prevention of issues that cause pets to end up in shelters. This can be done by for having pets spayed or neutered to control overpopulation. And adopting a pet instead of purchasing is the other key way to help. These two actions reduce the pressure on shelters everywhere.

Most, if not all, pets that are adopted out are spayed or neutered first. This helps to control the over population of unwanted pets. Even with this measure there are thousands of pets that end up in shelters every year. Often it is for reasons that are not serious – there are simply too many dogs and cats born each year.
