Special thanks to all who attended our 2016 Woofstock 5k Companion Walk! Whether you were able to make it or not, please consider taking a 3 minute survey to help us plan for our 2017 event.
The Tri-County Humane Society’s Annual 5k walk for animals is held the first Saturday after Labor Day in September each year at Wilson Park in St. Cloud. Registration is from 9am to 10am, the 5k walk begins at 10am, and the event goes until 1pm, in which a preliminary grand total is announced. In addition to the 5k walk, the event will include prizes for the top fundraisers and top fundraising team, games for pets and people, food, a silent auction, demos, music, exhibits, a costume contest for pets and people, the annual hotdog eating contest, and much more! In 2016, we had over 575 enthusiastic pet lovers with other to 225 companion animals join us and we raised a net profit of over $48,000 for the animals in our care!
Purpose of Woofstock:
The Tri-County Humane Society provides services for over 3,000 animals every year. Each pet is evaluated, examined, given appropriate vaccinations and dewormings, spayed/neutered, treated for ailments and injuries as needed, and given lots of TLC. There is no time limit for pets in our care, and provided they pass our health and behavior screening, they will remain in our care as long as necessary to find the perfect match. On average, pets are adopted in less than ten days, and in 2015, we placed 93.5% of the pets that entered our doors in homes—amazing for an open-admission animal shelter! This fundraising event is vital for us to continue providing these important services to pets in need. It is also a really good opportunity for pet-lovers to unite and celebrate the human-animal bond!
Participate as a Woofstock Fundraiser and Walk With Us! By registering online you will receive event emails updating you on fundraising incentives such as prize package content for the top fundraisers, silent auction item previews, event schedule with demos and contest times, fundraising ideas and encouragement, and more!
