(May 10, 2019) One year ago, Worcester County Humane Society started a new venture that would help the organization continue to assist the homeless cats and dogs in the area.

The Worcester County Humane Society Thrift Store officially opened its doors for business on May 5, 2018, at 12703 Sunset Ave., units 5 and 6, in West Ocean City. The thrift store will be holding a one-year anniversary open house on Saturday, May 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The public is invited to come enjoy some refreshments, music from “Meow Meow,” and all merchandise in the shop will be 10 percent off.

The Worcester County Humane Society Thrift Store is open every Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Donations are accepted Fridays and Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the back door of the building only.

Donations being accepted are gently used, in-season, women’s and men’s clothing, shoes, purses, jewelry, house goods, books, pet items, and furniture such as chairs, tables and bookcases.

Children’s items are not being accepted at this time.

Those with larger pieces of furniture should call 410-213-9400 ahead of time to be sure there will be room in the store for it.

Worcester County Humane Society depends heavily on donations from the community to care for the many cats and dogs who call the shelter home until their forever families are found. All proceeds from the sale of items directly benefit the animals at the no-kill shelter.

Volunteers are always needed to work at the thrift store in various positions. Anyone interested should call 410-213-9400 or leave message on the store Facebook page WCHS Thrift Store.

Worcester County Humane Society, located at 12230 Eagle’s Nest Road, is a private, nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter that consistently houses nearly 150 cats and 25 dogs until they are adopted.
