2020 has been a wild ride so far, and the busy “kitten season” of spring and summer isn’t slowing down one bit. It’s quickly becoming a CRAZY fall, and we’ve got plenty of cats to show for it!

Right now, there are 208 cats in the shelter (and 220 more in foster care!). Due to the high volume of felines coming into the shelter daily, we urgently need your help to open up space! That’s why our staff has been challenged to find loving homes for 50 CATS by Wednesday, October 7th!

All cat adoption fees are WAIVED through October 7th, and we need YOUR help to reach our goal! Visit the shelter and pick your purr-fect pal. Together, we can place 50 cats and kittens into wonderful forever homes!!


Subaru of America, Inc. and Sheehy Subaru Hagerstown will be generously donating $100 for every dog or cat adopted from HSWC in October (up to $3,100) as part of their Make a Pet’s Day campaign!!!! If we meet our goal of finding homes for 50 cats by Wednesday, we’ll earn $3,100 along the way! Now THAT’s something to wag your tail at!

Please visit our website to see all available felines!

(Normal adoption procedures apply! Don’t forget that cats must leave the shelter in a carrier. You may bring your own, purchase one from our retail area, or use a cardboard carrier for $5.)
