WKOW Pet of the Week

Every other Friday, ABC 27 WKOW helps us spotlight a special pet by featuring them on their Pet of the Week segment! Our latest featured pet on ABC 27 is Diesel! Watch Diesel's news segment HERE (coming soon!).

Update: Diesel has found his forever home! 

Hi, I'm Diesel, and I'm ready to find my forever home. At 8-years-old, the shelter is no place for me. I'd much prefer the comforts of a home where I can go outside and lay in the sun. I am most content when I can be near my favorite humans with the warm rays shining on my face. The staff here treats me great, but the kennels are noisy and stressful for me. I can't wait to meet my new forever family and leave this place behind. Is that you? Call The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin at 608-752-5622 to schedule your meet and greet with me!
