Putt for Paws golf tournament benefits animal shelter

CHESTERTOWN — The Animal Care Shelter for Kent County is hosting its first, and what is anticipated to be annual, Putt for Paws golf tournament.

The fundraiser will be held Friday, July 12 at Chester River Yacht & Country Club.

Registration begins at noon, with a shotgun start for golfers at 1 p.m. The format is a scramble.

For those interested in relaxed fun off the fairway, an after-party, including bocce, will be held from 4:30 to 7 p.m.

The fee of $250 per golfer (or $1,000 per foursome) includes 18 holes of golf, cart, food, drinks and the after-party.

For those attending only the after-party, the $150 fee includes drinks, heavy appetizers and bocce.

“We are thrilled to host our first golf tournament fundraiser,” said ACSKC Executive Director Richard Keaveney. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for our supporters to come together, enjoy a day on the green with the community, and sustain the vital work we do for the animals in our care.”

The Animal Care Shelter for Kent County is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has served the homeless animals of Kent County, Maryland since 1962.

As an open admission shelter, ACSKC’s mission is to provide every adoptable pet in its care with food, shelter, medical attention and love until they are adopted.

Located near Worton, the ACSKC also provides progressive programs from a food pantry, to lost and found services, to rehoming support services — and more.

In 2022, the ACSKC completed construction on a state-of-the-art shelter facility complete with a medical suite, enrichment spaces including five play yards and two outdoor catios, and a quarter-mile dog walking trail.
