The Sauk County Humane Society is gearing up for our 15th Annual PAWS Pledge Walk and Fun Festival, to be held on Saturday, May 3rd at the Sauk County Fairgrounds.
PAWS is more than “just” a walk. It is a fun family event for young and old, with kids games, live music by Old Gray Cats, demonstrations, vendors, activities, and food!
We are thrilled to announce our PAWS Walk and Fun Festival will be kicked off with our celebrity walker, Christine Bellport of NBC-15’s The Morning Show! Our MC is local dancer and actor Michael Etzwiler!

Princess is a two-year-old pomeranian/chihuahua mix surrendered to the shelter because her previous owner had too many animals. She has a gentle demeanor and enjoys a quiet environment, though should do okay going to a household with children of any age, or any other pets. Princess is up to date on all initial vaccinations and will be spayed prior to adoption.
Bourbon is a three-year-old solid white domestic shorthair cat who was found wandering in the country, fending for himself. He is a laid back, gentle guy who has adjusted extremely well to all kinds of different situations. He doesn’t mind being around dogs, and did extremely well when he was taken to visit a nursing home. Bourbon is neutered and current on all initial vaccinations.
We provide comfort and care to more than 2300 animals each year and turn no animal away. We provide rescue, adoptions, pet lost & found, emergency assistance to low-income pet owners, community programs, and humane education.
