Humane Society adoption promotion campaign begins

November 20, 2009

The Humane Society of Washington County (HSWC) has started its Home 4 the Holidays adoption promotion campaign.

In the past, students and staff of Washington County Public Schools, local businesses, and organizations have helped by becoming Shelter SANTAs, which stands for Send A Nifty Treat Along. Each organization that participates receives an oversized stocking to fill with nonperishable items.

The items collected are used to fill a stocking that will accompany each adopted pet to their new home. Pets who are awaiting new homes also receive a stocking full of goodies.

Schools, businesses or other organizations wishing to participate should contact Katherine Cooker at 301-733-2060, ext. 237, or Kim McGlaughlin at ext. 239. Members of the public who wish to donate nonperishable items can call Cooker for names of drop-off sites.
