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.

I feel especially rested after getting back the hour I lost in the spring due to daylight savings time. I have gotten through the mountain of paperwork on my desk, and I am feeling chatty today! So let's share!
How many times have I written, and lectured, and warned people about deer this time of year? I thought I was doing a good job at cautioning people and advocating for the deer. Apparently, the deer did not think so.
Wow! I just heard on TV and the radio that Petland sells puppies from puppy mills! What an incredible development that the HSUS spent much time and money investigating. They could have saved those resources by calling me, because anyone that works in animal welfare in this area could have told them without any doubt that of course Petland sells puppies from puppy mills. We know the puppy mill breeders, so we know exactly where they come from.
What reputable breeder would hand over a puppy to be sold in a pet store? Not any reputable ones that I know of. I cannot tell you how many people surrender puppies here at the shelter, that they bought on impulse, had them overnight, realized they were overwhelmed and tried to return the dog to the store only to find out that the store would not take the dog back. No refunds! They would not even take the dog back and not offer a refund. How is that for being responsible, Petland?
