Montgomery County Humane Society's "Holiday with the Shelter Dogs"

"Big Bruno and Baxter"

My friend "Big Bruno" sent me  information about a special Christmas event happening at the Montgomery County Humane Society in Maryland.  It's a really cool event, so I had to share with you what it's about.

While waiting for their loving "Forever Homes", shelter pets welcome extra attention, toys, and treats this time of year. Here's how a group of volunteers, and you, are helping:

A group of Montgomery County Humane Society (MCHS) volunteer dog walkers are hosting a special Holiday with the Shelter Dogs on Thursday, December 20. Want to support the event?  Bark! Pet Supply Stores in Rockville, Gaithersburg/Kentlands, and Olney are accepting donations no later than December 19, to include blankets, bones (not rawhide), toys and other items on the MCHS Wish List located on our website.

You drop off your your donations to the Holiday with the Shelter Dogs box at the shelter lobby. Volunteers will distribute the gifts to the dogs on December 20, as well as give them some extra time and attention.

For our friends who prefer to shop online, the MCHS Wish Lists is on
Amazon.com, and features an array of needed items for Cats and Kittens, Dogs and Puppies, and Other Animals, as well as General Care and Supplies.

Happy shopping! Thank you to our contributors and volunteers for making life a little more comfortable for shelter pets awaiting adoption during the holidays.
