Humane Society Lost Power, Needs Help

The Baltimore Humane Society lost power Monday, and needs volunteers to help clean and feed the animals, do laundry and help with monetary donations.

The Baltimore Humane Society needs help from the community. The shelter lost power Monday afternoon, and has since lost its backup power and internal phone system.

The shelter in Reisterstown needs volunteers to help feed and clean the animals, and its workers are asking community members willing to do some laundry to pick up a few loads from the shelter, which is located on Nicodemus Road. The shelter is also asking for a donation or loan of a 5,000-watt generator.

Monetary donations are also desperately needed to recuperate from the damage Hurricane Sandy caused, which includes a leak in the spay-neuter center.

Because Nicodemus Road is closed from a fallen tree, those looking to get to the shelter should get there via Ivy Mill Road. Directions are available here.

To contact the Baltimore Humane Society, post on their Facebook page or contact Wendy Goldband at goldband@bmorehumane.org. Donations can be made through the Facebook page’s Fundrazr app.

Have you ever volunteered at an animal shelter before? What's it like?
