Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin

Memorial Bricks – Path to Paws

Recognize your pet, honor a family member, and
celebrate animals finding loving homes!

Path to Paws is the perfect way to leave your permanent mark of care and compassion for your local lost and homeless shelter animals. This engraved brick campaign provides a great, visible opportunity to create a long-lasting gift that will help support enhanced animal care at the shelter and place beautiful pets into kind, warm homes.

Each brick will become part of a 20' x 20' patio where Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin holds a variety of public events, including microchip clinics, outdoor educational seminars, special events, and more. For more information, please download the program brochure here.

Thank you for supporting our mission: to inspire compassion for all animals, provide shelter and humane care to homeless animals, and promote adoptions and responsible pet guardianship in our community.

Two sizes of Paw Pavers are available:

  • 4" x 8" Standard - $100
  • 8" x 8" Family - $250
  • 8” x 8” Corporate Brick - $1000

A complimentary paw print will accompany your personalized message! Click here to order online!
