Paws for a Cause Run/Walk

Paws for a Cause Run/Walk to benefit the Humane Society of Jefferson County

The inaugural Paws for a Cause 5K Run/Walk is coming to Fort Atkinson on Sunday, September 17.  This family friendly, and dog friendly, event will take place at Koshkonong Mounds Country Club (W7670 Koshkonong Mounds Rd.) and will benefit the Humane Society of Jefferson County.  The race starts promptly at 9 a.m. and is sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and their Vodka for Dog People program.  Register soon as a morning of fun is in store…all to help support our furry friends.

Your $39.00 race day registration includes a custom finisher medal, t-shirt, goodie bag, complimentary photo magnet to commemorate this fun event, and one drink ticket from Tito’s Handmade Vodka for the post-race social (for those 21 and over).

The Humane Society of Jefferson County has proudly served the community for 95 years.  It is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, which relies on donations and fundraising.  In addition to reuniting lost pets with their owners, the HSJC provides pet adoption, 24 hour stray animal pick up, low cost rabies vaccination clinics, a safe keep program, the Furry Friends Kids Camp, humane education classes and pet therapy visits.  All of these efforts are done with the hope of creating a more informed, compassionate and humane community.

If you’re looking for a day filled with excitement, fun, fellowship and lots of tail wagging, plan to take part in the Paws for a Cause Run/Walk on September 17.  To learn more about the event and register go to
