Unleash your puppy love and fetch an adorable dog or cat at the Ocean Pines Farmers Market’s annual “Paws and Whiskers” fundraiser and adoption event. The event will benefit the Worcester County Humane Society, a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter serving all of Worcester County.

Ocean Pines Farmers Market will host the outdoor pet adoption event and fundraiser from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 15.

The pet-friendly event, which will be held in conjunction with the weekly market, will offer a variety of activities for pets and their owners including demonstrations, clinics, pet services and giveaways. The first 75 pet-parents to arrive at the market will receive a free goody bag full of pet items and coupons donated by Precious Paws Animal Hospital, of Ocean City, Md. Demonstrations will include agility and dog dancing by the Salisbury Kennel Club and the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit. Several tote bags of products, including merchandise that has been donated by the all-natural dog supplement company, NuPro Canine, will be raffled off by the Worcester County Humane Society to raise money.

Other featured vendors and organizations include Charlie’s Treats, Pet Wants Rehoboth Beach, Aunt Maggie’s Pet Sitting, Pet Threadz and Town Cats of Ocean City.
