Paws and Claws HSWC Newsletter
We’re excited to re-vamp our Humane Society Newsletter! Paws and Claws will be published twice a year and sent out through email. Our newsletter used to go out quarterly, but since our social media and website are so active, we thought it’ll be bigger and better just twice a year. Paper copies will be available upon request.
Sign up below to keep up to date with all the great things happening at the shelter!

Paw Tails Beer Release
Keep an eye out for Paw Tails in beer stores near you! We are so excited to partner with Tall Tales Brewing Company for this yummy Hazy IPA! The Paw Tails Beer release party is set for Thursday, June 10th from 4-9 pm. 10% of sales will be donated to our shelter.
- Adoptions & Fostering
We are now allowing the public to fill out foster and adoption applications at home, and email them to us. Take a picture of your completed application or use a typing program and email it to us at [email protected]!
The pandemic gave us good insight in what was best for our dogs. We are no longer allowing the public back into the dog kennels. If there is a specific dog you are interested in, shelter staff will bring that dog out to you.
You can find the Foster Application below, and you can find the Cat and Dog Adoption Applications on the corresponding AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION page.

- Food Bank
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are in need of assistance. We have pet food of various types set aside in our food bank, designed to help out Wicomico County residents in times of need. All you need is a valid ID proving Wicomico County residency, and proof of your pet’s current rabies vaccination. Give us a call. We’re here to help!
Visit our adoption page to learn how to adopt one of these animals!
