The Animal Welfare Society is holding an open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27. The shelter is located on Route 47 between Hand Avenue and Dias Creek Road, in the Dias Creek section of Middle Township.

Tour the shelter and visit furry friends in need of homes. The event will include refreshments, entertainment, Chinese auction and door prizes. Come out and support the care of our community's homeless animals.

The society will gratefully accept donations for the Pet Food Bank, helping pet owners keep their pets by providing food as needed.
