The Baltimore Humane Society Needs You!
Help Shelter Pets When You Join Our DogFest Walk

Be a DogFest Fundraiser!

Even if you can’t make the walk you will be changing the lives of homeless pets for the better when you become a Fundraiser.

This year all proceeds from our DogFest Walk go toward replacing our dying van. Our Van is an essential part of our organization. It allows us to transport shelter pets from overcrowded municipal shelters and overtaxed rescues to our no-kill shelter where they will be well cared for until they find their forever homes, no matter how long it may take.

Homeless pets who comes to us in need of medical care are transported in our van to medical appointments throughout the area so they can receive the best possible treatment. Our van is an important part of our Pet Memorial Services. We also use our van for frequent maintenance supply runs which help us repair our aging facility.

When you join our DogFest Walk,
the funds you raise will help us continue our life-saving mission. 
We could not do it without you.

Individuals who raise $50 receive free entry to the festival and a free DogFest t-shirt!
Donate or Sign Up For The Walk Below…

Create Your Team to Support The Red Devils, an organization with a mission is to fund support services that improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients and their families.

The month of July has provided me the opportunity to engage community members at many outdoor events and gatherings. Attending music concerts, festivals, community cleanups and gatherings in all corners of the 2nd District has been a great way to spend the summer months.

My office recently started a speed awareness initiative. This is an effort to draw attention to areas that are susceptible to speeding as well as providing speeding drivers with a reminder to slow down. If you have any concerns with speeding in your community, please reach out to my office and we will add your community to our list.

In March, I submitted a letter of support to Preservation Maryland to help the Glyndon Train Station LLC obtain a grant to complete various maintenance projects on the Glyndon Train Station. In July, I learned from board member Nan Kaestner that the Glyndon Train Station LLC was awarded a $7,800 Heritage Grant!

As your councilman, I am honored to have the opportunity to partner with community organizations, schools, advocates and residents to help push our district forward. If there is anything myself or my staff can help with, please reach out. You can contact my office by email at council2@baltimorecountymd.gov or by phone at 410-887-3385.
