Race for the rescues

Thank you for your interest in our annual 4K run/walk event, Race for the Rescues! This family-friendly event will unite pet-owners and animal-lovers alike to raise funds for the hundreds of homeless dogs, cats and small animals in need at the shelter. 

In addition to a 4-kilometer run/walk throughout the scenic county park, the event also includes a pet expo, featuring local animal welfare businesses and organizations, activities and other opportunities to support the animals in need.

Introducing: Fundraising Entry Option!

The Race for the Rescues is one of the Coulee Region Humane Society's three major events. Therefore, it is one of our largest fundraisers.

As a certified 501c3 nonprofit organization, we rely 100 percent on the generosity of pet lovers like you to operate. So the more money we can raise, the more lives we can save!

In order to do just that, we've introduced an alternative way for you to get involved and attend this year's race--through fundraising. 

You can now sign up to collect donations instead of registering as usual. For every $50 an individuals raises, he or she will receive one free admission to this year's Race for the Rescues.

This year's event is now passed. Stay tuned for details about the 2018 Race for the Rescues next Spring!
