Dog Days of Stockholm

Your whole family, including those with fur, is welcome at our one-day, outdoor event in Stockholm Village Park in charming Stockholm, Wisconsin (rain-or-shine)! Minnesota Basset Rescue is excited to be attending this event again!

Please note: Attendees who plan to bring their canine companions to Dog Days of Stockholmmust sign our Waiver of Liability & Release, which can be found here:

2018 Dog Days Liability Waiver

Dogs must be leashed and under owner control at all times.

Dogs Days of Stockholm is about community affecting positive change – for both humans and animals. People who meet shelter and rescue dogs in a relaxed and joyful atmosphere are more inclined to adopt, and that’s the goal of our event: to help place adoptable dogs into good and loving homes. Our last event, hosted by WCCO-TV personality Pat Kessler and his pug, Shelby, resulted in the successful adoption of 53 dogs.
