November 27, 2018 – Reisterstown, MD — Baltimore Humane Society’s shelter managers are locked in cages! Katie Dixon, Shelter Program Director, and Dawn Hallam, Dog Kennel Manager, are unable to care for the no-kill shelter’s animals this Giving Tuesday.
Dixon, locked in a cat cage with adoptable cats and Hallam, locked in a dog run with adoptable dogs, need the shelter to reach its fundraising goal on this national day of giving in order to get the key to open the cage doors.
On November 27th the whole nation joins together for Giving Tuesday, a day of giving. The day kicks off the holiday season with the spirit of love and caring. Baltimore Humane Society is counting on animal lovers to make donations so that it can care for the area’s countless homeless pets who cannot speak for themselves. The no-kill shelter runs solely on the support of the community. As a private, non-profit it receives no operating funds from the government or from any national humane society.
Baltimore Humane Society’s mission includes:
- rescuing, caring, and finding homes for homeless pets
- striving to end the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals by promoting and offering affordable spaying and neutering to control the population of unwanted animals in our area and addressing the issues that cause people to give up animals
- ensuring a peaceful final resting place for beloved pets through the operation of a beautiful and well-maintained cemetery for companion animals.
The magic number that will free the shelter managers so they can care for the dogs, cats, and small animals at Baltimore Humane Society is $15,000. Donations can be made online at bmorehumane.org/giving-Tuesday, by calling 410-833-8848 ext. 212, or texting the word ‘wag’ to 50155.
In the past year, Baltimore Humane Society has worked tirelessly to help the entire region’s homeless pets. In addition to the pets surrendered directly to the no-kill shelter, it also transferred in almost 600 dogs and cats from the region’s bulging open admission shelter cages.
