2021 Companion Walk

33rd Annual Companion Walk - A Fundraiser for Animals


Tri-County Humane Society is excited to announce that our Companion Walk for Animals will be an in-person event with hybrid elements! Nothing says party like MARDI PAWS and we have so many reasons to celebrate. Not only did we stay open during COVID but we provided services for over 3700 animals last year with examinations, evalulations, vaccinations, dewormings, microchips, spay/neuter, and care for ailment and injuries as needed. All this before we helped them find their perfect match adopter. But our work continues only because of the hard work of donors and supporters like YOU.

About our Companion Walk Fundraiser

Held along the beautiful Mississippi River at Wilson Park in St. Cloud from 9am-1pm on September 11th, our 1k and 5k walks are led by the Benton County Mounted Patrol at 10am. From 9-1pm, participants can enjoy food, games for people and pets, crafts for kids, a silent auction, demos, music, a costume contest, and take a stroll through our various vendors and exhibitors! Over 500 people and 300 pets participated every year before COVID. Well, we are back to raising funds and having fun in 2021!
