On Saturday, August 9, Baltimore’s dogs will smell like roses! Baltimore Humane Society is holding a dog wash! Anyone is welcome to bring their dog for a thorough cleaning. The fee for each dog’s shampoo will help the no-kill shelter raise much needed money for their Yukon Medical Fund, a special fund which helps the homeless shelter animals get much needed medical care.
As a no-kill shelter, Baltimore Humane Society’s policy is to give the medical treatment necessary that homeless animals need to live a happy, full life rather than euthanize them. But the cost of these medical procedures can add up quickly and place a huge financial burden on an already strained budget. Because Baltimore Humane Society receives no operational funding from the government or national humane societies the Yukon Medical Fund was created.
