Have you ever wanted a furry friend in your life? Someone to hang out or unwind with? Studies show that having pets can reduce stress and anxiety, even for animals. Sadly, many pets do not receive this type of love and attention. As a result, 70 million animals are strays and are left without a home. Luckily, there are several volunteers and shelters providing temporary homes, such as the Humane Society in Ocean City. At the Ocean City Humane Society, animals, whether they be cats or dogs, are given the assistance they require until a loving family adopts them to be their own.
