Meet Kris Kringle!

Kris Kringle is an adult Labrador Retriever, Newfoundland Mix. We found Kris at the Wisconsin Humane Society.

Founded in 1879, the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is a private nonprofit organization that is funded through the generosity of individual donors and receives no government support. As the largest and most recognized shelter in the State of Wisconsin, WHS offers specialized adoption services to match homeless companion animals with new families and provide follow up and support.

WHS receives animals from the community, the local animal control facility and other shelters inundated with animals. WHS also provides medical care for nearly 20,000 animals annually. Some of those animals are patients in our clinic and more than 5,000 are wild animals in need of rehabilitation. WHS maintains a spay/neuter clinic for animals from low-income households and provides education for children and adults to respect and care for animals and to end neglect and abuse. WHS also offers manners and puppy classes for dogs from the public.

The WHS Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is one of the largest in the nation. WHS merged with the Ozaukee Humane Society in 2004 to more effectively meet the needs of animals. Both the organizations remain focused on a shared mission and service to animals and people in their community.
