Dog adoption fees slashed 50% through Feb. 18 at Wisconsin Humane Society

WISCONSIN — The Wisconsin Humane Society has reduced all adoption fees for adult dogs through Friday, Feb. 18. Additionally, dogs available for adoption for 10 days or more, called “Benchwarmers,” have a fee of just $25.

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