The team at MVS loves being a part of many of the different events in our community. Check back here regularly to see causes we support and where we’ll be.
August 11, 2019 – Barks for Parks!
We love sponsoring this awesome event. It has grown so much the past two years that they have had to move to a larger location. Join us for the 3rd Annual “Barks for Parks!” celebration at Badger Prairie County Park in Verona. This fun afternoon will include live music, food, and entertainment for both pups and their people. Proceeds from this year’s event will be used to build a shade structure at the Badger Prairie Dog Park.
Suggested donation for admission is $5.00 per person. Dogs are free but must have a daily or annual dog permit. These can be purchased at the event or in advance through their website:
A list of activities, a schedule of events, and complete list of Barks for Parks Dog Rules is available on the event website: danecountyparks.com/barks4parks
September 8, 2019 – 3rd Annual Puptoberfest
We love supporting OccuPaws Guide Dog Association, a group that raises and rains guide dogs for the blind at no cost to the individual receiving the dog. This year we are yet again a top sponsor for Puptoberfest.
Come enjoy a day for the dogs with us at Wisconsin Brewing in Verona & help support OccuPaws Guide Dogs. Admission is free to this dog friendly event! Social and leashed dogs are very welcome. There will be live Music from the Red Hot Horn Dawgs! An amazing lunch will be available and of course great beer from Wisconsin Brewing Company.
October 19, 2019 – Bark and Wine
Bark and Wine is a great fundraising event hosted by the Dane County Humane Society . This event always involves great music, food and silent auction items. All of the proceeds benefit DCHS and the countless animals and wildlife in Dane County.
November 28, 2019 – Berbee Derby
The Berbee Derby is an annual 10k run / 5K run or walk that takes place every year on Thanksgiving Day. 100% of the proceeds stay within the Madison Community and support organizations and groups that benefit children, teens and adults who do not have access to technology. Money raised from the event goes directly to grants which in turn provide much-needed technology resources to under-served demographics throughout the community.
Each year, MVS has a team who participates in the derby. It’s a great cause, a great way to get some exercise in and a great way to give yourself an excuse to have an extra slice of pie after Thanksgiving dinner.
