An Open House of the new Adoption Wing will take place on Saturday, June 18, from noon to 5:00 PM at the HART Animal Center in Accident, Maryland. The afternoon will feature pets available for adoption, as well as activities for adults and children of all ages.
Activities will include face painting, a coloring contest, a raffle, a silent auction, and treats for pets and people. “This is a wonderful opportunity for families to visit our new adoption wing and really see what HART is all about,” says Debbie Beitzel, HART Board member and chair of the event. “We encourage people to bring their own pets – and maybe adopt a new one!”
The Adoption Wing officially opened in April and is the final phase of the 12,000 square foot facility. The Adoption Wing can house 60 cats and 60 dogs, and multiple litters of kittens and puppies. The common areas include an exercise room to help socialize animals prior to adoption and the “Meet and Greet” rooms for adopters to play and interact with potential pets.
