The Animal Advocates of Carroll Co., MD, Inc. is a non-profit organization formed to promote the humane treatment of animals, responsible pet ownership, shelter pet adoption and
pet spay and neuter, all with the goal of increasing the live release rate of animals from our
local animal shelter.
 All activities are performed by volunteers. Reducing the intake rate at the shelter also reduces the number of pets that need new homes. To accomplish this: We offer advice and assistance to owners to help them keep their pets, if they can, and help them re-home the pets
themselves, if they can't. Assistance to pet owners could include pet food, pet confinement,
training, assistance with veterinary costs, etc.
 We encourage people to get their pets altered (unless they are going to be shown, or
thoughtfully and deliberately bred) and tell them about low cost options to get that done.
When funding allows, we offer financial assistance. We also help with transportation to the
clinics, if the pet owners are unable to get the pets to the clinics, themselves.
 We assist with the trapping of feral kitties, have them vaccinated and altered, and release
them back where they live. We attempt to help lost pets get home, through the use of the internet and social media, and by posting fliers where the lost pets were found. To increase the
live release rate, we promote the adoption of the pets from the shelter. We do this by: Posting
pictures of the adoptable pets in local businesses, and on the internet, and social media.
 We occasionally offer special incentives to people who adopt from the shelter, such as gift
baskets, or reduced price adoptions. We attend events in our community, and set up a booth
with a display of the pets available, and discuss with people the importance of adopting from
their local shelter.
 Eventually, we hope to be permitted to take the shelter pets out to these events with
us. One of our future goals is the development of a Humane Education Program, to reach the
youth of our community with our message of compassion towards animals.
We all pray...some, but wouldn't we like to
pray...more? Better? Stronger? with more fire,
faith & fervency? Read Max Lucado's Before
Amen. Join Max on a journey to the very heart
of biblical prayer & power unleashed with 6
simple lines.
If you are on vacation or away from church during the

It will bring a smile to their face, knowing you care.

Your editor could use a little help. People used to ask me from time to time why there
are no pictures of our events in the newsletter or on the website. Well, the answer is that
although I see photos being shared here and there, rarely does anyone send me any to
use. If they are not wanted to be included on the website for any reason, they could still
be available to the membership in the “Spirit” weekly announcements. you like to see
some of your fellow members “doing their thing” during some of our skits, special occasions, FiveAlive, etc? All it takes is an email to [email protected] and
we all can share the occasion.
An old dollar bill and an even older $20 arrive at a Federal Reserve Bank to be retired.
"I've had a pretty good life," the $20 says. "I've been to Vegas, the finest restaurants in New York, and
even on a Caribbean cruise."
"You did have an exciting life!" the dollar says.
"Where have you been?" the $20 asks.
"Oh, I've been to the Methodist church, the Baptist church, spent some time with the Lutherans..."
"Wait," the $20 interrupts. "What's a church?"
