Staff and volunteers of the Elmbrook Humane Society will be blogging about what's going on at the society, as well as other observations about life in Wisconsin.
The mission of the Elmbrook Humane Society is to promote the human-animal bond through adoption and education, to provide shelter to homeless animals, and to prevent animal cruelty and neglect. EBHS services the city of Brookfield, the villages of Butler, Chenequa, Elm Grove and Nashotah, and the towns of Brookfield and Delafield. EBHS shelters unwanted pets and strays, and rescues injured domestic animals and wildlife, provides resources for individuals with companion animals and provides Humane Education to schools and civic groups.

Elmbrook Humane Society (EBHS) was founded in 1964. Our founders had no idea how much EBHS would need to grow and evolve in order to help the increasing number of animals and residents in our community. Animal welfare has changed a great deal over the past 45 years and there is a need to focus on the issue of senseless euthanasia faced by adult animals, especially cats and large dogs, right here in Wisconsin.
A day in the life of a volunteer is like none other. We look forward to sharing our time and talents for the good of humanity. Some have more time. Others have more talents. But each is willing to take time from their busy lives to help in worthy causes of which there are so many in every community. Volunteering can be done on a very local, a state or national level depending on each person’s interest.
There is no way anyone can take better care of my best four-legged friend than me. (Said like a true parent.) So when I was faced with an overseas trip to China, I was thrown into a state of panic. Where will Skippie (said four-legged friend) stay? I was ready to schedule him at a kennel and ask for his forgiveness upon my return, when a dear friend rescued me and offered to watch my beloved for two weeks. Great!
Once again our shelter in inundated with kittens of all sizes and shapes.
It has been nearly a month since eight puppies landed on the doorstep of the Elmbrook Humane Society, some after being left in the trash.
