Fundraiser Programs

Throughout the year we hold a variety of fundraisers and events that help us continue to accomplish our mission. We always appreciate excited, hardworking volunteers to help us plan for and host these events.

Fundraising volunteer opportunities include a Silent Auction, our Fido & Friends Fun Run dog walk, raffles, our Holiday Bazaar and Bake Sale, and our Santa Paws Ornaments sale, just to name a few.

Fundraising/Education Committee
The Fundraising/Education committee plans and organizes our fundraisers. They are constantly looking for new and creative ways to increase our revenue, so that we can continue to accomplish our mission. This committee meets once every 4-6 weeks at the shelter- a weekday evening. (no set day or time- usually either a tues or wed. around 6)

For more information on our Fundraising Programs, contact our Executive Director at 715-839-4747 ext. 25 or email at .
