A note on our ability to accept donations: Due to the overwhelming generosity of the community over the holidays and the New Year, we are overwhelmed with donations. Sadly, we do not have the storage capacity needed. We will not be accepting towels, sheets, blankets, cat and dog beds, or newspapers until further notice. Please consider donating to other local animal shelters and animal welfare organizations, such as:

  • The Montgomery County Humane Society, 601 S. Stonestreet Ave Rockville,  MD 20850
  • Second Chance Wildlife Center (NEWSPAPER DONATIONS ONLY), 7101 Barcellona Drive Gaithersburg, MD 20879

During a period of extreme cold temperatures, the Montgomery County Police Animal Services Division (ASD) enforces Executive Regulation 17-17, Anti-Cruelty Conditions for Dogs. Director of Animal Services Division Thomas J. Koenig is notifying residents that animals must not be left outside unattended. Furthermore, leaving animals outside unattended in these conditions may be considered an act of cruelty and pet owners could be charged accordingly.
