How $25,000 from HomeAgain Helps Would Aid this Shelter

Winning the Grand Prize would help the Humane Society of Ocean City to upgrade its kennel system with improvements such as fixing the interior of the dog runs, adding outdoor fencing and retrofitting the adoptable cat room to make more comfortable habitats. It would also apply funds toward the purchase of new sick bay equipment including stainless steel cages that help to curtail disease transmission.
