Wisc Humane Society Urgently Needs Foster Homes

Today, the Wisconsin Humane Society put out a plea to find more foster parents after taking in several dogs from a northern Wisconsin shelter that was struggling to house dozens of dogs from a seizure: 

We need your help with an urgent situation. We were contacted by another Wisconsin shelter struggling to lodge dozens of dogs who came to them in a seizure. They were seized due to suspicion of neglect/mistreatment and they are being held as the legal process plays out.

We are looking for new foster parents willing to open up their hearts and homes to care for them. Most are larger (40 lbs.+) breed dogs who have been housed for 1-2 years prior to the seizure; they can only go to currently dog-less homes. They likely haven't gotten the attention they deserve for a long time, and we’re honored to help them. We don’t know at this time how long they’ll need foster care, but we are asking for a minimum commitment of at least 1-2 weeks. The ultimate goal is to have them released by the legal process and place them up for adoption through WHS.

We hope you can help. It's your support that makes it possible for us to say "yes" when we're asked to help animals in need. 
If you are able to foster one of these dogs – or any others seeking foster at this time – please let us know at pvolkert@wihumane.org and someone from the foster team will follow up with you as soon as we can. And if you can't, will you consider sharing this email with friends, family or co-workers?
 
One last note - we are always seeking to on board new foster parents, both for dogs and cats, so even if you aren't able to foster in this particular situation, please consider becoming a foster parent for the many other animals who need extra TLC. Thank you!
