Furrever Friday: Meet Charlie

Each week, we spotlight an adoptable pet from the Humane Society of Warren County.

This week we are featuring Charlie an approximate 2 year old German Shepherd Lab mix. Charlie is a little timid bur very sweet. Because he is timid Charlie would do best in a home with no cats and old children. Charlie would make a great walking and running partner.

All adoptable cats and dogs at the humane society are altered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations.

All cats, dogs, and other small animals at the humane society are cared for by the Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic at 840 B John Marshall Highway Front Royal.

If you would like to give Charlie or any of his friends a forever home, please fill out an application at humanesocietywarrencounty.com.

Once you apply and are approved, a staff member will contact you with the next steps.

HSWC’s “Pawfect Match” policy goes into effect Monday

registration open polar plunge

The Humane Society of Warren County announced some major changes for 2024.

Visitors will notice a renovated entrance including fresh coats of paint, new signage, and some new technology which will now aid in the adoption and visitation process for the dogs at the Humane Society.

Beginning Monday, January 8th, the “Pawfect Match” policy will go into effect.

This policy aims to decrease the length of stays for dogs at the shelter, decrease the number of returns to the shelter, and increase adoption rates.

Prospective adopters will now learn about the available dogs through pictures and information displayed on a tv screen or tablets in the lobby.

Visitors will no longer be allowed to walk through the cages which has shown to increase stress and anxiety levels in the dogs while also incorrectly portraying them as aggressive or hyper.

A link to view pets currently up for adoption is available here.

HSWC celebrates most profitable Tails and Ales in history

registration open polar plunge

The Humane Society of Warren County celebrated a fundraising record after the 12th annual Tails and Ales.

The yearly cash party and silent auction welcomed 250 animal lovers from around the community Saturday, November 18th at the Front Royal Moose lodge and helped the humane society reach $25,000 donated to the shelter.

This number greatly surpassed previous years which averaged between $10,000- $15,000 per event.

This year’s Tails and Ales was amped up thanks to the addition of three new games, the introduction of basket sponsors, and by raising the value and quality of the auction baskets and items.

In total, there were over 20 different baskets and items available for auction.

Interim Executive Director Kayla Wines has led the fundraiser since 2018 and has worked to elevate the event each year.

She said, “It has become a favorite in the local community and 2023 was the most profitable in its history, raising $25,000 for the shelter! We absolutely could not pull this off if it weren’t for the hard work of staff, volunteers, and board of directors.”
