MADISON (WKOW) -- Marissa DeGroot from the Dane County Human Society stopped by Wake Up to show off this week’s pet pal, Henson.

Henson is a 3-year-old Lab/Catahoula Leopard mix.  DeGroot says Henson gets along with other animals and should do great with children. 

The Dane County Humane Society is also gearing up for Dogtoberfest.  The event, presented by Spectrum Brands on Sunday, September 18 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm!

DCHS will welcome over 500 guests and their canine companions to Capital Brewery's beautiful Bier Garten. Come and enjoy some lively bluegrass tunes, tip back a few Capital brews and purchase a great lunch from Madison favorite, OSS.

Get creative and enter the dog costume contest, or the brand new couples costume contest where you and your pooch can show off your coordinating outfits. This event will be sure to bring a wag to every tail this fall!

Guests are asked for a $10 donation at the door to join in on the fun all day. DCHS also asks that all dogs are up-to-date on vaccinations, are friendly in social environments and are held on leashes that do not flex.
