Maxwell Wright Real Estate Nerd

Every month, Maxwell sponsors one lucky pet and contributes to that pet's care during their stay here at the shelter! This month's spotlighted pet is Beamer!

Update: Beamer has found his forever home! 

That smile is sure to get you beaming with joy! Meet Beamer! He may be 8-years-old, but that doesn't stop this go-lucky guy from enjoying play time! Pets and belly rubs are the way to his heart and the key to developing a forever friendship! Beamer loves to meet new people - his smile says it all! If you're looking for a loyal and loving companion, Beamer is your guy! Would you like to meet Beamer? Call The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin at 608-752-5622 to schedule your meet and greet!
