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.

PLUS: The first 125 people to register get a free goody bag

Your Dog Could Be King or Queen of the Fiesta

The male dog and female dog (and their owners) that raise the most in donations will win our coveted King & Queen baskets. These baskets include goodies for both the dog and their human and is valued at over $150 each! The more you raise, the better your chances of winning.  More information coming soon! 

If you cannot attend the Dawg Gone Walk & Fiesta, but still want to support the shelter or a dog in your life – the King and Queen contest is a great way to do that! You can donate to any dog’s campaign and the proceeds will help them get that much closer to the crown at this year’s event.  Attendance is not required to support this campaign.
