2016 Holiday Craft Fair!

The weather is getting cooler and we know what that means.... THE HOLIDAYS will be upon us soon!  We are hosting the 2016 Holiday Craft Fair on December 4, from 10:00 - 4:00 pm at Thomas Stone High School.  Crafters from all over the area will be available for you to browse from and purchase unique gifts for everyone on your holiday list.  If you are a crafter and would like to join us for this fair, please submit your application soon, as there are a few spaces available.   CLICK HERE to print the 2016 Holiday Craft Fair Form and follow the instructions to submit your form.  All proceeds from the selling of crafter spaces, our bake table and white elephant sale go directly to the Humane Society of Charles County to continue to care for the lost, abandoned and surrendered pets that come through our doors.

We will also have a very special guest appear spreading holiday cheer!  

We had a blast!

The weather wasn't doing much cooperating in the morning, but by afternoon, it was a beautiful sunny Fall day and everyone came out to play!  

We'll be back again next year with even more fun for the family and pets  in your lives!  In the meantime, check out the pictures throughout the event provided by our very own "Mutt Madness" official photographer Eva Lightfoot.

September Adoption Numbers

September 2016 saw 158 pets adopted into new homes.  We'd love to see that number constantly increase with ever month!  Please share that adopting a pet saves lives!
