Boardwalkin’ for Pets

April 18, 2020

Join us for our annual walk, rain or shine at the Boardwalk!

The Worcester County Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) private non-profit organization. They are a no-kill animal shelter, and operate mainly on donations. Boardwalkin’ for Pets is our largest fundraiser held every year. All money raised is used to care for the many dogs and cats that call the shelter home. In addition to providing everyday care, their animals also receive veterinary care, which can be quite expensive. Their animals receive loving care until they are adopted into suitable homes!

9AM – NOON on the Boardwalk!
