Join us for Paws in the Park 2017!

Our largest fundraiser and dog walkathon!


Last year, more than 400 animal lovers came out to support the Cascades Humane Society and raised over $30,000 to help care for abandoned animals. This year, we hope you will join us and consider bringing your own Pack (team).

Our goal this year is $35,000 and we can’t do it without your help!

When you participate, you are raising funds for Cascades Humane Society. Proceeds go to help save the lives of more than 1,000 animals each year. Each animal that enters our doors receives care (including, feeding, grooming, training, and medical care) that averages $650 per animal. What can you do to provide care for one animal? Check out our Fundraising Tips to help you get started.
