Every animal up for adoption at WHS found a home amid coronavirus pandemic!

The Wisconsin Humane Society has been overwhelmed with support for their animals amid the coronavirus outbreak. 

Worried they wouldn't have enough staff and volunteers to care for animals, on Sunday, March 15, WHS asked for the public's help to foster cats and dogs. 

Despite the chaos and uncertainty of the pandemic, WHS said the community stepped up in a big way. 

In just five days, 159 animals found a new home, and another 160 animals found foster homes. 

WHS said there is not a single animal available for adoption -- they're all in homes! Of course, WHS said there will be more animals coming in that will need help in the coming days. 

CBS 58 in Milwaukee says that for now, WHS will be facilitating adoptions at the Milwaukee and Green Bay campuses by appointment only. Racine, Ozaukee, and Door County campuses are closed at

this time. 

"We’re so grateful to our community for taking all of these changes in stride. We wish we could thank you all in person, but for now, we send our love virtually. You. are. amazing," WHS said on Facebook.
