Fallston, MD (March 28, 2018) – Gather your friends, family and co-workers, put on your dancing shoes, and let your hair down because the largest party for homeless and neglected animals is back to raise funds for the care and comfort of about 3,500 homeless animals that enter The Humane Society of Harford County (HSHC) each year. Now in its 14th year, the Bow Wow Boogie will take place on Friday, May 4, 2018 from 7:30-11:30pm at the Richlin Ballroom in Edgewood, MD. The “Boogie” is brought to you by Tito’s Vodka – the Vodka for Dog People!

Local businesses and animal lovers across the region are strongly encouraged to show their love for the animals and donate gift cards, jewelry, artwork, professional services, tickets to area attractions, and much more for the evening’s popular silent auction. Monetary donations are accepted as well. Donations are tax-deductible and net proceeds from the evening support vital programs and services including HSHC’s foster program, rescue transports, veterinary care, spay/neuter surgeries, and much more.
