Tri-County Animal Shelter January Promotions

The Tri-County Animal Shelter is pleased to announce the following January monthly promotions and reminders:
New Year, New Homes (Tuesday, Jan. 2 to Wednesday, Jan. 31)
In celebration of the New Year, the shelter is reducing the adoption fee for dogs to $100 and for cats to $20.18 during January. Start the year off right with a furry friend by your side!
Walk Your Dog Month (Tuesday, Jan. 2 to Wednesday, Jan. 31)
In honor of the special month, the shelter will give a leash and collar with every dog adoption during January. There are many benefits for you and your pet when you walk together. Our shelter pups love to get out of their cages for a walk. Volunteers are always welcome to stop by, fill out our volunteer paperwork, and walk the dogs. The shelter is open for volunteers Monday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Be sure your pets wear a collar with an identification tag, a county license, and a rabies tag. Microchipping your pet with up-to-date information is a great practice as well.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
