The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness. For more than 128 years, WHS has been saving the lives of animals in need. We offer adoption services that place 9,000 animals in new homes annually, veterinary services that save thousands of lives, educational programs that instill respect for animals, behavior services to assist guardians and a myriad of other initiatives that help end suffering for animals. We depend entirely on private donations to fund our programs and rely on volunteers in nearly every department. If you are interested in adopting, volunteering, enrolling in a class, taking a tour or making a donation, check out our comprehensive web site at wihumane.org. The adoptable animals' web pages are updated every 30 minutes!
Join the Wisconsin Humane Society for the very first Tails on the Trail dog walk on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at Greenfield Park in West Allis.
This fun, one-mile walk will support animals in need right here in our community. Join a team, participate as an individual, or become a "Virtual Walker" and raise funds for the animals from home! Everyone who participates will have a chance to earn great prizes! It's easy; the more funds you raise, the more prizes you win!
The fun continues after the walk with our very own Bark Bash festival! Bark Bash is free, open to the public and will offer festivities for everyone, including food, vendors, music, fun activities for children, an agility course, interactive games for you and your dog and so much more!
You can register day-of on Saturday, May 11th at Greenfield Park! Just visit the registration tent starting at 9 a.m. (walk starts at 10 a.m.) Day -of registration fees are $30 for adults 16 years old and up, and $20 for children 6-15 years old.
