Humane Society to host gala to benefit Harford's homeless animals

The Aegis

Homeless animals with traumatic injuries or illnesses that require costly surgeries, life-saving medications or rehabilitation are the focus of a gala evening at the Humane Society of Harford County (HSHC).

Everyone is invited to join Harford County Executive Barry Glassman, honorary event chair, and event co-chairs Amy Hartman, V.M.D. and Moira and Scott McGill on Friday, Nov. 17, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Humane Society of Harford County at 2208 Connolly Road in Fallston. Proceeds from the Second Chance Soiree will be placed in the Phoenix Fund, a special account to help animals heal, get adopted and live out the rest of their lives with a loving, forever family.

Tickets are $125. Hors d'oeuvres and an open bar will be catered by Laurrapin Grille and live music is provided by BirdDog. The shelter will be open to view the adoptable animals, and a guided tour of the shelter will be given at 7:45 p.m.

There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available that provide recognition in press releases, advertisements, on HSHC’s web site and social media sites and in the program that evening. Many of the sponsorship levels include tickets to the event.

Named after the Greek myth about the phoenix that obtains new life after being regenerated out of the flames, HSHC’s Phoenix Fund was established to give critically injured or ill animals a second chance.

For tickets, or to sponsor the Second Chance Soiree, visit or contact Mandy Bittner at 443-987-0649 or
