The Caroline County Humane Society is a non profit 501(c)3 organization with an “Open Door, Open Heart” Open admission shelter that never turns away any animal at our door from Caroline County. We also operate Caroline County Animal Control which responds to calls and complaints 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
We offer a low cost/free spay and neuter program for the pets belonging to low income and elderly residents of our county, and offer educational programs and resources for pet owners. We are developing a program especially designed to reach the children in our community. Our shelter has 20 large indoor/outdoor runs, a puppy room and cat and kitten room. Every animal has their own bed, blanket and toys. Daily walks for the dogs (sometimes more), and play time for the cats keep the animals stimulated, happy and socialized. We also have many wonderful pets in foster homes.
We are located on the eastern shore of Maryland, approximately 30 minutes east of the Bay Bridge. We are approximately 45 minutes to Annapolis and Dover, DE; one hour and 15 minutes to Baltimore, Washington, DC and Wilmington, DE; two hours to Philadelphia.
