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.

A purrrfect Birthday Celebration!
The epic battle between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears has polarized our residents, and now our best friends are getting into the rivalry! This Sunday, the Elmbrook Humane Society in Brookfield, WI. and The Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago, IL. are betting high humiliation stakes on their respective home teams!
There are a lot of people who think I am nuts. I live with 2 dogs, one cat, and 3 humans. The cat is the perfect housemate unless he wants to eat. Then he gets rather testy. The dogs go on walks (with me, of course) twice daily. The younger dog is involved in competitive obedience so we go to training sessions twice weekly and we also visit with people at nursing homes, schools, and adult day cares once or twice a month. The 3 humans are a ton of work. Still, you can find me most weekday mornings walking a few dogs at EBHS. When I walk through the gate, the greeting I get is beyond belief. If the dogs know me from previous walks, they are barking or wagging their tails. New dogs often stand there, shivering with anticipation. If I speak to them, they get even more excited. I am happy when I can get them outside; the barking in the kennel area inside can be annoying. Dogs are such social animals. Walking up and down the street for any amount of time or playing in the back, you’d think they’d gone to heaven. They don’t care who you are or what you look like or what you feel like. Just being with you is enough for them. If the weather isn’t that conducive to walking, they are happy to be brushed, petted, and talked to. I can come to the shelter feeling tired or in a bad mood and I always leave refreshed. The time I spend there is truly fur for the soul. Monica
