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.

Two and four-legged friends from Elmbrook Humane Society's Therapy Team hope to spread love and kindness to the residents of Care-Age of Brookfield this Valentine's Day. Members of Elmbrook Humane Society's Therapy Team will be visiting residents at this senior facility on February 14, 2012 from 4-5pm.
This year Valentine's Day arrives on a Tuesday and many of the residents may not have family or friends visiting so the team is thrilled to give the residents of Care-Age a special Valentine’s Day visit. Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love and what better way to spread love than with a group of canines! The dogs and their handlers will be passing out homemade cookies, candy, Valentine’s Day cards, and flowers donated by Dolores Kopp owner of D’s City Chic Flowers and Gifts in Brookfield.
The EBHS Therapy Team is comprised of all volunteers and their dogs that donate their time to senior programs, library reading programs and children's programs in the community. All dogs on the team are registered therapy dogs and most are Elmbrook Humane Society alumni and/or rescue dogs. Many of the volunteers and their dogs visit the residents at Care-Age on a regular basis.
