The Paws & Claws Gala is the Wisconsin Humane Society’s largest fundraising event of the year. Held at the historic Pfister Hotel, the event is attended by nearly 400 business leaders annually and features a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, raffles and games, wine pull, formal dinner, and program.

Did we mention that it’s also the only gala in town where you can mingle with shelter pups, our favorite felines, and some of our very best wildlife ambassadors? You don’t want to miss this!
