Almost all DCHS and Wildlife Center services are by appointment only. If you found a lost animal, need to surrender a pet, found wildlife in need of help, or require another service, please call before coming to the shelter.

Dog Costume Parade

 Wingra Park

Sun. Oct 31st, 2021

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Dogs are invited to have some Halloween fun in the 3rd annual dog costume parade!

Canines in costume (and their owners) are invited to gather at Wingra Park to show off their outfits and then walk to MadCat for a special dog goodie bag!

This year anyone wanting to go inside MadCat will need to bring a mask, but the doggie gift bags will be available outside as well.

Your registration fee will benefit Dane County Humane Society. The number of dog participants is limited to 30. Each dog participant needs to buy a ticket. Tickets are not required for human participants.

By purchasing a ticket, you agree to these rules: all dogs must be held or kept on a leash, and owners are fully liable for any injury or damage caused by their pet. Please plan to dispose of waste properly.

Get your tickets here!
