Somerset County Animal Shelter Bake Sale for Kitten Fund - and Adoption

"Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms."  ~ George Eliot

I was shooting an assignment today at the Somerset County Animal Pound and these ladies pulled out the below banner. Being an animal lover, and being owned by 5 cats, I had to give them a plug. 

So head on over to the Pocomoke Farm and Lawn Center between 9-12 on Saturday, April 24, and adopt a dog or cat. Even if you don't have room for another pet, you can contribute to the kitten fund by buying some fresh baked goodies at low, low prices. Smith Island cake is only $1.50 a slice. Cup cakes are 2 for $1.00, and cookies, brownies, and Rice Crispy treats are only $1.00.

 From left, Cindy Pruitt and Michele Warner. They will be providing some of the goodies.

 I want to add that I have done a lot of volunteer work for large humane shelters over the years, and I have seen some bad county pounds. This one is excellent, and the workers really care about the animals. Pruitt and Warner take half of the animals home. I know. I did, too.

So get out and support our pound. They have dogs and several darling kittens who need a good home. And there is one Calico cat that I almost brought home.  She is being spayed tomorrow and will be waiting for you. And remember, the Calico cat is the official Maryland State cat. 
 She'll be waiting for you.

Given our love of the feline persuasion we could easily be on TV for one of those houses with too many cats if we didn't have restraint!! So-o-o-o....our shelter is one of our main donations we do!!

Oh that calico is a cutie, for sure! We adopted a little blue creme a few years ago. She was in the humane society for nearly 5 months waiting for a home, and has blessed our life every day since then.
