Post an announcement on your social media platforms letting folks know that you’re walking in Pet Walk and ask them to join you. If you have certain people in mind, make it a personal invitation by tagging them in your post (it’s bold, but effective!).

Subject Line: Can you help me help them?

I'm heading to the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Pet Walk Ozaukee on August 24 to walk for animals who need our help.

This fundraising walk/festival isn’t just a fun day out with friends, family and pets; it’s a show of compassion for the voiceless and a promise to help WHS provide both animals and people in the communities it serves with vital resources: pet food, low-cost vaccines and spay-neuter services, and training classes, among other things.

I’m raising funds and awareness for WHS so they can continue to give shelter, care, and support to animals with nowhere else to go. The money we raise is put to work immediately, helping to provide urgent veterinary care, shelter, a new home and a brighter future to the near 40,000 animals that come through the Wisconsin Humane Society's doors every year.

I’ve set an ambitious fundraising goal, and I can’t reach it without you! Please consider supporting my efforts by making a donation to my Pet Walk fundraiser here: [INSERT PERSONAL URL]




Subject Line: It's that time of year again - time to help animals!

I’m once again joining an amazing group of people for the Pet Walk Ozaukee fundraising walk/festival this summer, raising money and awareness for the Wisconsin Humane Society. WHS is an aewsome place - it of course provides safe shelter for animals when they have no one else to turn to, but you may be surprised to learn that people are also at the heart of WHS's mission. The Wisconsin Humane Society also provides youth, adult, and family outreach to the areas it serves so together we can continue to build a community that values animals, and treats them with respect and kindness.

The animals who come through their doors are full of love in so many ways - they're cuddly, they're looking to play, they're goofy - but they are also some of the most resilient animals you will ever meet with their own unique stories.

As hard as it can be to ask you - my friends and family - for donations year after year, seeing the amazing success stories of these animals makes it so worth it! Life has thrown a lot of curveballs at them, yet they still eagerly wait to find their place in their new perfect family. While at the shelter, they heal, play, and grow and WHS is there to encourage them every step of the way.

Please consider making a donation again this year if animals are near and dear to your heart like they are to mine. I am so grateful for your continued support and couldn’t do it without you! [INSERT PERSONAL URL]
