Toto's Gala

**Save the Date for the Next Toto's Gala: Friday, March 15, 2024!**

Thank You for a Wonderful Event!

Thank you to ALL of you who made Toto's Gala a fantastic success! With our caring supporters, generous sponsors, giving partners, talented volunteers, dedicated staff, and (of course) adorable animal greeters all in attendance, we were thrilled to celebrate the lifesaving work happening at DCHS every day.

Whether you support DCHS in remembrance of a favorite childhood pet, in honor of the kitty or pup waiting to greet you at the door, or maybe the inspiring wildlife you saw on your hike last weekend - your donations make a difference! We come together to celebrate our love of animals and to ensure that we can help every animal get their second chance. Thank you for being a part of this family!


Join Dane County Humane Society as we return to Toto’s Gala – back in person at Monona Terrace! This event brings over 300 supporters, sponsors, and friends together to celebrate our love of animals. Toto's Gala is presented by The BerbeeWalsh Foundation.

Your generosity reunites lost pets with their families, provides care for thousands of injured or orphaned wild animals, connects the next generation of animal lovers with unique educational experiences, helps keep pets with the families who love them, and helps thousands of companion animals find their way home each year.
