Welcome to the Sauk County Humane Society's PAWS Walk and Fun Festival site!

You can also search for other participants and donate toward their goals. So, leash up Fido, and join us for a fun-filled day while helping animals in need!
We are proud to announce that this year, Christine Bellport, co-host of NBC15’s The Morning Show and SCHS adopter, will lead the three-mile walk. Ms. Bellport is the proud owner of Halle, a dog she adopted from our very own shelter after she appeared on the morning Pet of the Week segment!
Owner-accompanied dogs and dog-free humans of all ages may collect pledges, and the more pledges you bring in, the better the goodie bag!!
Paws Walk is the Humane Society's biggest fundraiser of the year, and is more than "just" a walk. It is a fun family event for young and old.
***This year we're featuring dog agility, the Sauk County Sheriff's Department K-9 unit demonstrations, reptile demos courtesy of the Madison Area Herpetology Society, live music (provided by "Old Gray Cats"), demonstrations, over 50 vendors, and food!***
If you would rather register and/or collect pledges using a paper form, PAWS brochures will be available at the Shelter and at many Sauk County businesses after April 15th. Pledges are due at the time of registration on Saturday May 21st.
New this year!! The more pledges you get the better the prizes!! You have an opportunity to win pledge prizes as an individual AND as a team member! Individual prizes start at pet items (tags, treat, etc.) and go all the way to the top prize of VIP parking and the chance to lead next year’s one mile walk! Team prizes start with fleece blankets and doggies balm all the way to the top prize spa products for both you and your pet!!
