   This little nocturnal lady is looking for a happy home to set her cage in. Having a hamster involves more than a cage, food, water — they also love to run on wheels, chew and crawl through tunnels. Come visit Gidget and the other hamsters currently at The Humane Society of Washington County.

Gidget and many other animals are available for adoption at The Humane Society of Washington County, 13011 Maugansville Road, north of Hagers-town. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday; 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday; 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Animal visitation begins at 10 a.m. daily. Closed on Sunday.

For more information, call 301-733-2060.

Tune in to HMTV6 Thursdays at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. for "Paws for Thought."
