Animal shelter in need of supplies

November 04, 2012|Staci Clipp | Around South Hagerstown

The Humane Society of Washington County continues to experience shortages of supplies due to the continued large intake of kittens, puppies, cats and dogs.

It is asking the public for its assistance.

The shelter is asking for donations of the following food items: cheese in spray cans, canned chicken, Vienna sausages and peanut butter.

The shelter also needs toys for dogs and cats, but especially dogs. Interactive toys for the dogs such as Kongs, stuffable toys, puzzle-type toys, etc., would be appreciated.

Drop off the items at the shelter, which is at 13011 Maugansville Road in Hagerstown.
