Together, we can give injured and abused animals a second chance at life. One step at a time, one animal at a time.
Join us for our Woof Walk on October 26th as we walk to save animal lives. The event is free, family-friendly, and open to the public. The Woof Walk welcomes over 500 animal-lovers and dogs!
It costs the Humane Society $18 a day to care for an animal. Walkers that raise $18 will receive a Woof Walk 2019 t-shirt! Those who raise $50 or more will be eligible for additional prizes as they advance to higher fundraising levels. Example prizes include, but are not limited to, a bandana for your pup, a long-sleeve premium Humane Hero t-shirt, and VIP event benefits. For detailed fundraising incentives, click here.
Register, form a team, and invite your friends and family to join our cause. Then, bring your best animal friends and join us for a fun-filled morning, starting with a walk from the Humane Society Campus through beautiful Shelby Farms. Afterward, hang around for a costume contest, pet tricks for treats, food trucks, music, a kid zone, crafts, and more for you, your furry friends, and your family!
