Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin

The Lakes Edition

Each week, The Lakes Edition spotlights an adoptable pet on its website and social media. The latest Pet of the Week is Maggie!

My name's Maggie! I was brought to the humane society and now I'm in search of my new forever home! I'm a bit apprehensive if people come on a little too fast, but once I warm up, it's all butt wiggles and kisses from there. I may not be winning any fetch awards, but I will definitely win over your heart with my mad snuggling skills! If a night of snack, snuggling, and reality tv is your thing - we may be a perfect match! Call the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin to schedule a meet with me today!
