HSWC Celebrates Halloween With No Tricks, Just Treats

The Humane Society of Washington County (HSWC) is celebrating Halloween with waived adoption fees for dogs and cats on Tuesday, October 31. The dog adoption fees are being sponsored by Uniting to Save Animals: U2SA.

"Uniting to Save Animals partners with the HSWC as well as with other organizations to save lives,” said Kim Jones, Director of Volunteers and Animal Initiatives. “Our partnership with them has been invaluable and our hope for Tuesday is to find shelter animals forever homes, so we have the resources to help more."

In addition to waived adoption fees, each dog or cat adopted on Halloween will go home with a free bag of food, while supplies last. Cats will also receive a free bag of catnip.

Pictures of all adoptable animals can be found on the shelter website, hswcmd.org. Adoptable animals have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated according to age, and given worm and flea preventatives prior to being placed up for adoption. The HSWC also provides adopters with a complimentary health visit at a participating veterinarian, as well as an option for 30 days of free health insurance for their new family member.

U2SA is a nonprofit organization based in Frederick, MD that offers spay/neuter assistance to those who qualify. The organization promotes adoption of animals from HSWC and rescue groups to reduce pet overpopulation.

The HSWC is located at 13011 Maugansville Road, Hagerstown, and will be open from 10 am – 6 pm on Tuesday, October 31.
