Wisconsin Humane Society Buying Out Puppy Kennel Haven

In an unprecedented move, the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is buying out one of the largest dog breeding facilities in the nation. At least 1,200 dogs will have vastly improved lives.

The dogs are to be spayed and neutered thus ending the production cycle. Please join me in applauding the WHS for taking this action and ending the Puppy Kennel Haven. Chiva and I will be making a visit to the WHS August 10th, and will be writing a check to help officials and volunteers find good homes for the 1,200 incoming dogs. Thank you to those who have donated and thus enabled Chiva and me to help with such an urgent and worthy project. If you would like to contribute to this check, please donate here.

We met David and Chiva today at the Wisconsin Humane Society and it was obvious how passionate David is about helping animals. Chiva is a beautiful, patient and a great ambassador for this life changing adventure. Thank you David for your commitment and taking time to visit us while touring the USA.

Best wishes,
Victoria Wellens
Executive Director
