Queen Anne’s County Animal Services Fall Event 2012

On Saturday, October 13, 2012, the Queen Anne’s County Animal Services volunteers held their first Fall Photo event at the county shelter, located on Clay Drive in Queenstown. It was a beautiful day and many came out to enjoy the event and the shelter pets! Dogs available for adoption were walked around the event in hopes of catching the eye of prospective adopters. Fall Photographs were taken of dogs from the community throughout the day. The backdrop was decorated with barn doors, hay bales, corn stalks, pumpkins, gourds and mums to give the perfect Fall look! Photos by Shamrock, out of Barclay, donated their time and expertise to make these pictures fantastic! Reverend Charlie Osberger from St. Luke’s Chapel, Wye Parish, gave a Blessing Of The Pets for all in attendance. In addition to these main attractions, there were several Bake Sale tables with items for people and pets. Raffle items were available for winning. Also, a Bone Yard Dig was a fun activity for the pups and their owners, where dog biscuits were scattered for finding amongst fake tombstones. A Costume Contest for dogs finished up the day. Kathy and Don Trotter took the outside candid photos. Thanks to all who participated in this fun event!
