Are you considering adding a new pet to your household? Come visit the Adoption Center and meet our wonderful dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, snakes, turtles and other animals waiting for new homes!
Look at adoptable animals online or just come to the shelter to meet available animals. If you are looking for a dog or cat (or puppy/kitten), fill out a “ Meet Your Match” TM Survey and an adopter information sheet to help our trained adoption counselors recommend the best animals for your lifestyle.
A trained adoption counselor will be assigned to take you back to the animal holding areas and show you potential matches. Please note: Due to the time and effort our adoption counselors give to each applicant, we cannot accept applications after 6 p.m. (M, T, Th, F) and after 4 p.m. (Sat. and Sun.) though visitors are welcome to continue looking around until closing. If you see an animal that you like, your adoption counselor will bring the animal into a private adoption area so you can meet him/her and discuss his/her individual characteristics, as well as your expectations and needs.
Once you and your adoption counselor agree that you’ve found a great match, a “hold” will be placed on the animal while the adoption is finalized. In some cases, the animal may be held for up to 48 hours in order to complete any necessary requirements, such as meet-and-greets with other animals in the home.
The Montgomery County Animals Services and Adoption Center’s (MCASAC) barn cat program places fully vetted, semi-feral cats into safe, independent-living settings such as barns, outbuildings or even warehouses. A barn cat program can save lives and help a community’s felines and humans co-exist peacefully with each other in a mutually beneficial partnership. For more information, click here.
