What Visitors Should Know Ahead of Time

  • Due to the nature of this event, we will not be introducing adoptable dogs to owned dogs to determine their compatibility. Please do not bring your dog to this event! If you have a dog that is very pet-selective, please consider visiting us on another day.
  • Montgomery County residents are required to purchase a 1-year license (required by law) at time of adoption for $12.
What Potential Adopters Should Bring
