Greenfield Park Goes to the Dogs

Wisconsin Humane Society to host hundreds of dogs at “Tails on the Trail” dog walk

MILWAUKEE - Join the Wisconsin Humane Society for the very first “Tails on the Trail” dog walk on Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Greenfield Park in West Allis. There are already 550 people pre-registered to walk with their dogs, and the organization expects a total of 750 or more walkers. 

The one-mile dog walk will support animals in need at the Wisconsin Humane Society, the largest and oldest animal shelter in the state of Wisconsin. The goal for the first year is to raise $50,000.

The fun continues after the walk with a Bark Bash festival! Bark Bash is free, open to the public and will offer festivities for everyone, including food, vendors, music by radiomilwaukee, children’s activities, an agility course, interactive games for dogs, and much more.

Day-of registration is $30 for adults (16+) and $20 for kids. Children 5 years old and under are free with a registered adult. Dogs must be vaccinated, well-socialized, and leashed at all times.
