To find puppies to adopt in Milwaukee, check the official websites of the Wisconsin Humane Society and the Milwaukee Animal Alliance. The MAA provides a list of animal shelters and rescue organizations in Milwaukee County and other counties in the state of Wisconsin.
To check for adoptable puppies on the WHS website, visit Wihumane.org and click Adopt on the top menu. Filter the list of adoptable dogs by selecting Dogs under Animal Type, choose a gender, and select Milwaukee under Location. The list shows all adoptable dogs housed in the WHS' Milwaukee Campus. The Milwaukee Campus takes care of puppies as young as one month old; most dogs are still considered puppies up to 2 years of age. To adopt a puppy, you may need to submit an online application form and visit the puppy during adoption hours.
The Milwaukee Animal Alliance encourages residents of the city and of the state of Wisconsin to adopt a local animal. To find a list of rescue groups and local animal shelters, go to MilwaukeeAnimalAlliance.org and click Adopt Local on the top menu. Choose Milwaukee County under Shelters and Rescues, and choose an organization or shelter. The Canine Cupids, for example, houses mixed dog and puppy breeds, while the New Beginning Shih Tzu Rescue is dedicated to rescuing abandoned and homeless Shih Tzus. Both sites contain information about the adoption process and encourage interested adopters to submit an online adoption application prior to visiting the puppies and dogs under their care.
