WISCONSIN — The Wisconsin Humane Society announced Friday that their annual Pet Walks in Milwaukee and Green Bay are going virtual due to COVID-19 health and safety concerns.

The Humane Society decided that switching to an online format was best and is inviting participants to join them for a digital kickoff online, followed by a run or walk through your own neighborhood.

“While we don’t know what the future holds for all community events this summer,” said Anne Reed, President & CEO of WHS. “We know one thing for sure: love for our pets will always endure, and support of our work means that we’ll be able to continue to meet the ongoing needs of animals in our community.”

Pet Walk Green Bay is Saturday, June 7 and Pet Walk Milwaukee is Saturday, June 20. The fundraisers annually raise about $300,000 for animals in need.
