When a houseful of sweet little old ladies discover that a handsome bachelor lives across the street, they are delighted. When they learn that he is none other than Detective Dennis O'Finn, of Homicide, they are faced with the problem of how to attract his attention. The answer is simplicity itself: a nice, genteel homicide with a cup of tea as the murder weapon. When a brash young woman reporter begins to suspect the truth, she becomes the next target. O'Finn is terribly embarrassed when at last he discovers that he himself is the motive for these madcap goings-on, and, in desperation, manages to solve the case. But the dear old ladies are too fond of him and in the end they turn the tables on him! First a short story in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, later a success on "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," and now a stage veteran of hundreds of performances around the country, Bull in a China Shop continues to enchant audiences everywhere! Performances are Friday, November 13 at 7:00 and Saturday, November 14 at 5:30.

  • A Buddy For Life, Inc. & Cecil County Animal Care and Control
    A Buddy For Life, Inc. was started in 2006 as a small foster based rescue. Our founder was inspired to do rescue by a Chocolate Lab that she found wondering along a busy road. The owner of the dog was never found. A new family for “Buddy” was found through a local rescue. A Buddy For Life Inc. was created in honor of “Buddy.” Since our inception we have grown into a larger foster network, and now into our own shelter. Our Mission At A Buddy for Life Inc, we believe that every living creature deserves love and security, and to be treated with the respect and responsibility that come with belonging to a family. Our goal is to save the lives of as many dogs as possible, making sure that each of those lives, in turn, touches another. To support that goal, AB4L finds foster families to protect those who would otherwise be discarded and to teach the abused that they are worth our time and affection; we provide a chance to those who have been forgotten or never even known, and the dogs we rescue bring joy to those who open their homes and hearts to our ever-growing family. Through the hard work of many and the grace of second chances, we are working to make sure that more lives may be changed for the better by having A Buddy for life. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our EIN number is 22-3921170.

  • The Humane Society of Harford County Inc. (HSHC) and Pets for Patriots, Inc.
    The Humane Society of Harford County Inc. (HSHC) and Pets for Patriots, Inc. have joined forces to give active, disabled and retired military service members and their families the gift of a pet’s unconditional love, while providing dogs and cats with a second chance at life. Through this partnership, Pets for Patriots will connect our area’s loyal service men and women to HSHC, and HSHC will introduce them to eligible homeless dogs and cats that are looking for permanent homes. Individuals are eligible from any United States armed forces and at any stage of their careers – active, reserve, National Guard, retired or veteran. Eligible adoptions must meet one of the following criteria: dogs or cats two years and older, dogs 40-pounds or larger regardless of age, and special needs dogs and cats. The Humane Society of Harford County will help any veteran in the Pets for Patriots program find a needs- and lifestyle-appropriate pet. Enrolling in the Pets for Patriots program is free and in return, HSHC will provide a 20% adoption discount. In addition, several local veterinary clinics are offering discounts on veterinary services for approved Pets for Patriots members. Additional veterinarians are added to the program as they are approved. “Our goal is to help our adoption partners re-home harder-to-place pets that still have years of love and life to give,” says Beth Zimmerman, founder and executive director of Pets for Patriots. "Companion pets are known to provide real physical and emotional benefits to their guardians, including those suffering from post-combat stress, depression, isolation or physical disability. We’re delighted to work with The Humane Society of Harford County to give these at-risk pets a second chance at life and, in so doing, to enhance the lives of veterans living in the community." HSHC quickly saw the potential to find adult dogs and cats permanent homes with service members. “We are able to place about 1,500 pets each year,” says Mary Leavens, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Harford County. “Through our partnership with Pets for Patriots, we hope to provide forever homes to even more loving animals with the many military personnel and veterans in our area.” Service men and women interested in the program must first apply through Pets for Patriots and provide proof of their military service. Approval typically takes one or two business days, after which the military member can visit HSHC for assistance in choosing a new pet friend. About The Humane Society of Harford County, Inc.

  • The Humane Society of Harford County is building a new shelter
    Everyone has the opportunity to contribute to the new facility, whether making a general donation toward the care and comfort of the animals, naming a room in the building, purchasing a commemorative “Leaf of Love” on our Donor Tree or more. We encourage you to make a gift to the area that is most meaningful to you. Gifts can also be made in honor of or in memory of a person or a pet. Give by credit card via our secure online giving form or call 410-836-1090, x101. Gifts by check should be made payable to The Humane Society of Harford County and mailed to: The Humane Society of Harford County, Attn: New Building Fund, 2208 Connolly Road, Fallston, MD 21047. You can make a one-time donation, or pledge to give over a period of up to three years.

Click here to make a gift. Naming Opportunities. There are still many naming opportunities for those that want to endorse this project and permanently inscribe their name in the new building. Outside the building, donors can name benches and trees for $500 or more, and inside the building, there are rooms to be named for $2,500 or more. An example of a premiere space yet to be named is the Education, Training & Meeting Center. This will be the place where the HSHC Board and volunteers can meet, where volunteers will be trained, where educational programs will occur, dog training classes, and even birthday parties for kids can happen – right next to all of our furry friends. This will be an ideal place to name for the donor that enjoys high visibility. “Leaves of Love” Gifts. Become part of this attractive, hand-carved wooden interior tree displayed prominently in the new Adoption Center Lobby with stone, acorns, and brass and copper leaves bearing the names of special animals or people. Donors can honor a pet, person or family, either living or deceased, or a business on this beautiful tree to be seen by thousands of visitors for years to come. Donate Stock or Securities. A gift of stocks or securities to The Humane Society of Harford County can be arranged via electronic transfer or by receipt of stock certificates. The gift provides a full income tax deduction, negates capital gains tax, and may also avoid estate taxes. We would be happy to talk to you, your lawyer, or tax adviser about the advantages of making a gift of appreciated assets such as stocks or bonds. For more information, please email Mary Leavens or call 410-836-1090, x101. Donate a Vehicle. You can donate not just your car, but also motorcycles, jet skis, boats, mobile homes, snowmobiles, and more. Email Kim Aumiller or call 410-836-1090, x111. Employer Matching Gifts.

If you have questions, please email Mary Leavens or call 410-836-1090, x101.

  • You Are Not Alone Veterans Foundation
    You Are Not Alone Veterans Foundation proudly serves Veterans and their Families! We provide resources and expertise to assist with obtaining housing, recieving entitled benefits, maximizing employment opportunities, and providing counseling whenever needed. Our veterans are returning to an economy challenged by record unemployment rates and a stagnant job market. At the federal, state and local levels we are failing to help veterans transition from military service to the civilian work force. After World War II, exemplary programs and support for veterans created the American middle class and helped the “greatest generation” to become great. We owe this generation nothing less. We are dedicated to helping our veteran’s who are in need. It is our mission to help by responding to the emergency needs, personal or financial, of every veteran that is in need throughout the united states, and acting as liaison between the government and the community in safeguarding the rights of these veterans. According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, far too many veterans are homeless in America—between 130,000 and 200,000 on any given night—representing between one fourth and one-fifth of the homeless population in the united states. It is our mission to lower this percentage by helping veterans to overcome all obstacles to employment and obtaining VA compensation and benefits in order to obtain adequate housing and living essentials. ~ With your support we can make this country a better place for all veteran’s who have fought for this country. Please visit, email or call 302-751-0177 for ways to help, see upcoming events and to find out more on how you can be a hero to past, present and future United States veterans.
