Brown County Humane Society creates an afternoon of Dawg-gone fun for humans and their furry canine companions. We have games, contests, pampering stations, information booths, and even shopping!

Funds raised for the event go directly to the feeding and care of homeless pets at the shelter. This helps us maintain and improve our amazing 98% save rate, one of the nation’s best.

Come out and join the fun.
