Bay Area Humane Society Holds Annual PetWalk on June 6th, 2015!

Green Bay, WI – The Bay Area Humane Society will hold its 16th annual PetWalk on Saturday, June 6th. Activities and registration start at 8:00 a.m. and the walk begins at 9:30 a.m. This year’s PetWalk is presented by Capital Credit Union. The PetWalk is a non-competitive 5K walk that starts and ends at the Shelter. This year’s goal is to raise $65,000.

Participants can register ahead of time online at, where they’ll find a great list of incentives they can receive for meeting their fundraising goals. The rewards start at $75 and go through $3,000, with the $3,000 prize being a $300 Best Buy Gift Card!

Over 600 pets and people take part in the walk that starts at 9:30 a.m. It’s not just for dogs – all sorts of well-behaved pets and people without pets are welcome. People can also participate without a pet.

Steve and Laura from Star 98 host the day for a fun morning with lots of family activities including:

Food and beverages

FREE pet photos offered by Ambrosius Studios

Portraits with a pony

A pet obstacle course

Kids activities

Vendor tables and more!

Because Bay Area Humane Society does not receive funding from government or national animal welfare organizations, PetWalk is a critical fundraiser that helps cover the costs of providing care, protection and placement for thousands of lost and abandoned animals in our area each year.
