Help us to raise funds assisting us in our continuing mission to: Improve our community for animals and people by: sheltering and protecting animals from harm; placing them into caring, responsible environments; increasing awareness through humane education and community outreach; endeavoring to reduce animal overpopulation and to eliminate cruelty; serving as an advocate for animals by promoting humane standards; and enhancing the relationship between animals and people. The Humane Society of Calvert County has been a “No-Kill” animal shelter since established in 1975. HSCC is looking forward to a growing crowd this year. The funds raised will help continue our mission of rescuing homeless animals that would otherwise have no chance.
