    Love Kittens but you’re not ready for a long-term commitment? Please consider Fostering!! Please visit the www.wxcyfm.com pet page for contact information and to learn more about fostering opportunities. Last year, HSHC received over 400 kittens that required foster care. This litter season will be just as busy. HSHC has already received dozens of kittens this spring and expects to receive hundreds more as the summer goes on. “It happens every spring and summer, and the sheer number of incoming animals can be overwhelming,” says Mary Leavens, Executive Director. “We need foster parents to provide love and care until the kittens are old enough to be adopted.” Foster parents provide temporary homes so kittens can grow in loving, nurturing environments until they are 8 weeks of age and will return to the shelter and be adopted into forever homes. Please call to learn about how you can help homeless animals in Harford County!!

  • Pitties and Purrs Rescue Inc.
    The Rescue with a Heart …Pitties and Purrs Rescue Inc. is a 501©(3) Foster-based Rescue grounded out of Baltimore, MD. Our President, Mary Sullivan, is an amazing woman that spends her life caring for the well-being of animals in need. She is never afraid to aid in rescue as she is always extending a loving hand to any animal that may need help. Mary instills this in her Rescue group every day. We rescue hundreds of Pit Bulls country-wide to be rehabilitated and to ultimately find their forever homes. We work tirelessly to change the public’s misperception of Pit Bull-type-dogs, and to always convey what a wonderful and loving breed they are. This Rescue’s mission is also about Educating and Advocating for Animals in need. Due to the fact that we are a Foster-based Rescue, we function completely off of donations, as well as our wonderful volunteers that care for & temporarily welcome the dogs and cats into their homes, and prepare them for adoption. You can see a lot of the wonderful work including ‘Happy Tails’, our Adoptables, and our Calendar of Events here – https://www.facebook.com/pittiesandpurrs If you would like to see some of our adoptable animals, please go to http://www.adoptapet.com/pittiesandpurrs/ We try to host as many fundraisers as possible because there is always a dire need for food, medicine, toys and of course monetary assistance for our always revolving Veterinary Bills. Our fosters and volunteers work diligently to raise funds for the medical care of the dogs & cats that we pull from local shelters (including Baltimore County, AA County, BARCS), and outlying shelters (in PA, WV, NC). There can be a spay/neuter needed (almost always), and many other medical conditions such as mange, entropion eyelids, Heartworm Treatment, biopsies needed, etc. We mostly handle all the tough medical cases that others are not willing to. Not to mention the monthly & yearly vaccinations and grooming for all animals in our care. Training is also a necessity to set up the future Adoptable for success in life. We treat these animals like family, until we can find the perfect home for them to call their own, forever. I would like to thank you for your generous donation to our rescue, Pitties & Purrs, the Rescue with a Heart. We will always be determined to save more animals, however, we welcome & are grateful for any & all support from our Communities.
  • Survivors of Abuse in Recovery, Inc. (SOAR)
    SOAR, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing mental health services for those who are affected by sexual abuse, regardless of their ability to pay for services. Incorporated as a 501 (c) (3) organization in 1992, Survivors of Abuse in Recovery, Inc. (SOAR) is a statewide recovery program which provides counseling, referral, and education services to adult, adolescent and child survivors of sexual abuse and assault, their non-offending partners, and non-offending family members. SOAR also provides outreach programs to community organizations and businesses. ~ In addition to the ongoing evaluation of each client by a trained clinician, the effectiveness of SOAR’s treatment program for children and adolescents is measured with the trauma Symptom Checklist for Children (TSCC), which is administered to teens before and after each cycle of the group treatment program they participate in. Children complete the TSCC at the beginning of treatment, after six sessions, and at the end of treatment or after one year, whichever comes sooner. The effectiveness of SOAR’s treatment program for adults is monitored with the Symptom Checklist-90 (SCL-90), a standard questionnaire that measures a client’s self-reported symptoms in nine specific psychological problem areas. Clients complete the SCL-90 four times before, during, and after treatment.~ For more information or to schedule an appointment call: New Castle County (302) 655-9049 ~ Newark (302) 655-3953 ~ Kent County (302) 422-3811 or Sussex County (302) 645-4903 www.survivorsofabuse.org
