SALISBURY, Md. – This month’s 3rd Friday’s theme was ‘Paw Prints’ and along with bringing furry friends to the event, it’s also highlighting finding pets their forever homes.

We spoke with the Wicomico Humane Society earlier and they tell us the uptick in animals is still a huge concern. As much as they love animals, they tell me they are almost at capacity and they’re even making use of their outside kennels, which is something they say they don’t like doing.

They tell us they’re in need of kitten formulas, kitten food, cat toys, dog toys and much more. They say they’ve almost exhausted their foster network and they’re asking the community for help to get their dogs, puppies, cats and kittens adopted. “So we really do need to expand we need people to come meet some of our dogs if you’re interested in adopting, now is the best time to do it we really are just truly running out of space,” Megan Koester, event coordinator and community relations coordinator with the Wicomico Humane Society. “We just really want people to see us in the community and show what we’re offering and that we do have lot of awesome animals that do need homes.”

The humane society also tells us, they have multiple events planned in hopes of expanding, getting resources for their animals and getting their pets adopted.

If you want to learn how you can adopt a furry friend, just call the humane society at 410-749-7603.
