MADISON (WKOW) -- Six-year-old retriever mix, Eleka, is in need of a forever home.  She is the last of a group of 11 brought to the Dane County Humane Society from a former breeder in Columbia County. 

Reps with DCHS say Eleka is sweet, but can be a little afraid of new people and situations.  She would likely do best in a predictable and quiet home with an owner who has patience.  She has enjoyed being around other dogs, so she might do well in a home with other canines too.  If Eleka sounds like a good fit for you or someone you know, click here to find out more. 

Marissa DeGroot from the Dane County Humane Society brought Eleka on Wake Up Wisconsin Friday morning.  You can see the full segment in the video version of this story. 

DeGroot also talked about the shelter's Wildlife Center.  Now that it's spring, the center is seeing its first baby wild animals of the year.  If you happen to come across wildlife that seems to be in need of help, DeGroot says, before intervening yourself call DCHS at (608) 287-3235.  "Our staff can help guide you through the next steps in helping, because sometimes the best thing to do is wait and observe. A baby's best chance for survival is with its mother in the wild, and we can help you determine when help is truly needed and when a baby is best left alone," says DeGroot.
