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.

Many of you may know that I am from NY, and I wanted to give a shout-out to Staten Island Chuck, the groundhog oracle of the Tri-State area where I am from. When they reached in to yank Chuck out of bed this morning to find out if he could predict an early end to winter, he turned on NYC Mayor Bloomberg. Obviously, Chuck is not a morning groundhog, and he is as sick of the winter as the rest of us. Fortunately, Chuck was too busy attacking the Mayor to see his shadow, so there will be an early spring according to him. I am going to roll with that groundhog as Puxatawney Phil was not as accomodating and predicted 6 more weeks of winter. Of course, we are in Wisconsin, and there will still be piles of snow in the back of places like the mall parking lot well into June no matter when winter is officially over.
The Pet Expo is finally over! That is the reason I have been a remiss blogger the past couple of weeks. I was not only neglecting this blog, but my husband and children as well. I have been very bad, but I am back now. Man! That event is a lot of work, but well worth it. We have found some adopters for our dogs, made some new friends, and had a great day with the rest of the western Great Lakes area animal rescue/welfare groups. I am already looking forward to next year!
Some other good news for readers of The Insider - The Dude (Duke) and Boggle were adopted! They were two long term animals here at the shelter, and they both found WONDERFUL new homes! We have already followed up on The Dude and his new family said he is absolutely wonderful and he fit into their family so nicely. Nothing is better than when there are happy endings for animals that have been here for awhile. It is hard on the staff and volunteers seeing them here so long, and hoping that today will be their lucky day.
Well, here is to hoping for an early spring!
