Where's Tom?

During Maryland 2,000, the HSWC is hosting a special “GeoCat” competition, with a $250 cash prize for the winner.  

A play on geocaching, participants are to look for clues on HSWC’s social media throughout July to determine the location of the giant GeoCat, Tom, who is tomcatting around Washington County to raise awareness for cat adoption and Maryland 2,000. Tom will appear at six locations in Washington County from July 1 – 28. Participants must take a selfie with Tom at four out of the six locations and submit all photos upon completion to with their name, address, telephone number, email address, and GeoCat locations.

Qualified participants will be entered in a drawing to win $250, which represents the 250 felines the HSWC plans to find homes for as their part in Maryland 2,000. The winner will be announced August 1 at noon on the HSWC Facebook page.

Good luck!
