Savanna’s act of kindness

When you show someone an act of kindness- they might forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” -Savanna Brooks

Savanna Brooks surprised the shelter staff with a very generous donation after she won the Think Kindness National Kindness Speech Contest. Savanna and her mom, Heather, donated baskets of supplies then presented the Humane Society with a check for $300 to benefit the homeless animals of Wicomico County. After her presentation Savanna toured the shelter to see how her act of kindness will impact the over 3,500 animals who enter our facility each year. Keep an eye out as Savanna spreads kindness to three more organizations in our community.

Peace 1 Day

Thank you to the many volunteers who came out on Sunday, April 14 with Oak Ridge Baptist Church for the annual Peace 1 Day. 

It was no easy task but everyone came together and with the help of some generous donations and coordination from the Harper family the shelter was transformed in a whirlwind of activity. The landscaping received some much needed sprucing up, our cat room received a fresh coat of paint and the shed was overhauled and organized. 

We are so grateful to everyone who came out to help. #peace1day
