What is Paws in the Park?

Paws in the Park is an annual outdoor fundraising event where pets, their families and people who believe in the Washington County Humane Society (WCHS) mission come together to celebrate pet ownership.

The main event is a 1.5 or 2.5 mile walk through neighborhoods in Jackson. Walkers are encouraged to collect pledges for their participation and awards are given for the top pledge earners. After the walk, the festivities continue with pet games and activities, vendors, music, food and raffle prizes. The event concludes at 1:00 p.m. 

Our Event Sponsors:

In its 30-plus year history, Paws in the Park has drawn tens of thousands of people and raised more than $250,000 for WCHS.

Join us for all the fun!

Paws in the Park is a great opportunity to show off your pet, swap stories with other animal lovers and enjoy the onset of fall—all while supporting WCHS.
