HSWC Hosting Open House for Washington County Gives

The Humane Society of Washington County is participating in this year’s Washington County Gives event on May 2.

To celebrate this 24-hour day of online giving, the HSWC is hosting an open house and free lunch sponsored by Shop ‘n Save on May 2 from 11 am – 1 pm. The public is invited to attend. Throughout the event, there will be raffle prizes awarded and freebies for those choosing to make a donation to the HSWC through the Washington County Gives website. The shelter is also offering $20 off all adoptions throughout the day.

As a thank you, each person who gives on May 2 will receive an original piece of artwork created by shelter puppies. The “Paw-casso” paintings are abstract, colorful images made by the paws of walking puppies, so each one is unique.

“Our vision at the Humane Society of Washington County is to be the community’s leading resource for all animal-related issues,” says Kim Intino, President/CEO.  “We are your Humane Society and welcome you to visit and learn more about our animals, the work we do to help them, and how your support makes it all possible.”

According to, Washington County Gives is “a 24-hour, online giving promotion hosted by the Community Foundation of Washington County MD for 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in the county. Celebrating its fifth anniversary, this event gives local nonprofits the opportunity to raise unrestricted dollars and receive pro-rated matching dollars and prize money. Last year’s event brought in more than $400,000 in online donations, matching funds and prizes for 73 local nonprofits.”
