Worcester County Humane Society to host Open House, Saturday

A local animal rescue organization is getting ready to show the community what they do, and welcoming visitors to their facility.

The Worcester County Humane Society is holding their annual Open House on Saturday, October 28th from 12-3 PM. The big day is being held in conjunction with Adopt-A-Shelter Dog month.

Everyone is invited to visit WCHS's Eagles Nest Road facility, in Berlin, to see and meet all of the sweet dogs and cats that are available for adoption. The shelter is also offering $25 cat adoptions and $100 dog adoptions on the day of the open house.  Applications must be turned in on October 28th to receive the discounted adoption fee.

Officials say there will be kid’s activities, a bake sale, and local artists and vendors, and at 2:00 PM the Worcester County K-9 Unit will host a demonstration. No need to eat before you go, because lunch will be available with a $5 donation.

For a $10 donation from 12- 2 PM, you can get a portrait of your pet with a fall themed background. Or bring your furry family members for a Blessing of the Animals by Father Matthew D’Amario from St. Paul’s By the Sea. Father Matthew will be at the open house from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM. Organizers ask that dogs be leashed, and cats in a carrier or leashed.

The Worcester County Humane Society is a private, nonprofit, no-kill shelter. It is located on 12330 Eagles Nest Road in Berlin. They are open 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM every day, except Mondays. For more information, call 410-213-0146 or visit the website.
