WI Humane Society Rescues 12 Samoyeds from Northern Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Humane Society is caring for 12 Samoyed dogs they rescued from a Burnett County residence on Wednesday. The Burnett County Health and Human Services and Sheriff’s Departments contacted WHS for assistance in the situation a few days prior and were also on-site during the rescue, according to a release from the Humane Society. 

Overwhelmed by trying to care for too many dogs, the owner surrendered 12 of the dogs to WHS. They were transported Wednesday to the WHS Milwaukee Campus, where they are now receiving veterinary exams, behavior support and loving care from a team of dedicated staff and volunteers. The Samoyeds will all receive medical exams on Thursday to better assess their conditions.  

"Many of the dogs are quite timid because they've been deprived of regular human contact, but we're confident they will warm up with patience and love," said Angela Speed, vice president of communications at WHS. "Some may need foster care and others may be available for adoption as soon as this weekend."

All of the dogs are behind housed at the Milwaukee Campus located at 4500 W Wisconsin Avenue.
