The Worcester County Humane Society would like you to help with their 11th annual Boardwalkin’ For Pets fundraiser!
The Worcester County Humane Society, located in West Ocean City, is a non-profit, no-kill organization for the rescue of animals. This humane society receives no county, state, or federal funds and relies solely on the donations of animal-lovers.
Every dollar raised and donated to the humane society goes directly to the animals. Boardwalkin’ For Pets is a great way for the shelter to raise money. At last years Boardwalkin’ nearly $42,000 were raised and went directly to the animals at the humane society!
The Worcester County Humane Society tries to unite every animal in the shelter with a loving, suitable, and caring home. Before adoption, all animals in the shelter are looked after, and taken care of by a small staff and volunteers.
Would you like to help? On Saturday, April 24th, between 9 a.m. and noon, bring your pledges, donations, and dog to the 11th annual Boardwalkin’ For Pets fundraiser! Stop by the Worcester County Humane Society and pick up a pledge form to begin collecting donations.
Everyone participating in the event will meet on the Ocean City boardwalk at the inlet. The event will be held rain or shine. Refreshments will be provided by Harrison’s Harbor Watch Restaurant. Smooth Jazz 97.1 is one of over 18 sponsors of the event and will be on the boardwalk playing music, holding contests, and giving away prizes.
Water dishes for the dogs and refreshments for the walkers will be available along the designated 2.5 or 5 mile walks. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the walk at the inlet. Gift baskets will be awarded to those individuals who raised the most money for the organization. Dog walk bandannas, t-shirts, and travel coffee mugs are prizes delivered to those who raise between $20 and $100. Have a good picture of your pet cat? Bring your feline’s picture and enter them in the 4th annual Cutest Cat Photo Contest to win a special prize basket!
