It was a cold and windy morning on the Ocean City Boardwalk Saturday but that didn’t prevent another fantastic turnout for the Worcester County Humane Society’s Annual Boardwalkin’ for Pets event! Dogs and their owners were seen proudly parading up and down the Boardwalk, with many donning their finest attire for the costume contest. Awards were given for Largest Dog, Smallest Dog, Best Trick and Best Dressed. Cats were included in the fun too, with a photo contest for Cutest Cat. We couldn’t resist attending the event and snapping tons of photos. Enjoy!

(included are photos submitted by Tina Walas…thank you!)

Casper gives a big kiss to WCHS employee Ashley Brown! Act quickly, this guy is up for adoption but with that sweet disposition he will probably be in a fur-ever home before you know it!   WCHS employee gets kiss from Casper
