The Humane Society of Charles County started in 1978 with the single objective to rescue dogs and cats hit by cars. Their services have expanded over the years, and they now offer shelter and care for homeless, injured and neglected animals, as well as adoption services, fostering, community partnerships, humane education, no-to-low-cost spay/neuter and vaccine services, and affordable well-pet veterinary services.
A grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will help The Humane Society of Charles County expand their Honey's Fund for senior dogs.
Many animals are admitted to the local shelter because they need costly medical care, their medical issues are chronic (often the case in senior animals), or they are found as strays. HSCC's Honey's Fund, a limited pool of money for medical treatment, is used to help these at-risk animals. Grey Muzzle grant funding will expand Honey's Fund, helping senior dogs who need support to live out their golden years in comfort.
