The Tri-County Humane Society’s Annual Companion Walk for animals is held the first Saturday after Labor Day in September each year.
This event draws hundreds of people and their pets every year. As one of our larger fundraisers, walkers raise a substantial amount of money for the animals in our care!

Why the Walk is Important:
Each year, the Society provides services for over 3,000 animals. 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 we regularly place well over 90% of the pets that enter 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!
In addition to the 1K or 5K walk, join us for family fun from 9:00 am-1:00 pm. There will be picnic-style food, great exhibitors, games for pets and people, a silent auction, and much more!
Registration begins at 9:00, the walkers depart at 10:00! Meanwhile back at Wilson Park the fun will continue all during the walk and conclude by 1:00 PM with the prize announcements.
