Foster Volunteers Wanted to Help with PAL Program

Mabel, a 2-month-old Corgi/Terrier mix is looking for her forever home. The brindle puppy is up for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society's Milwaukee campus at noon on Tuesday. She is one of four puppies available for adoption. Staff calls her an "expert cuddler."

The Humane Society is also looking for volunteers to foster dogs during their summer "PAL Program." PAL stands for People and Animals Learning. The program offers under-served youth the chance to work with and train shelter dogs. The kids are nominated by a teacher or social worker. The program is free to participants, and the shelter provides busing services. 

The teens have already been nominated, but the shelter is looking for foster volunteers to help with the program. Volunteers will bring a shelter dog into their home for two weeks, during the program. Those volunteers will be asked to drop off the dog in the morning and pick the dog up in the afternoon or evening. It gives the dogs socialization opportunities.
