About Us

The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC), operated by the Department of Police, Animal Services Division,  provides high-standard sheltering and care to the homeless, abused, and neglected animals in our community and ensures the safety and welfare of the county’s citizens. We are the the county's only open-admissions, municipal shelter.

The Center’s doors are open to all animals in need from dogs and cats to farm animals, wildlife, and exotics.  Trained staff provide animals with daily care, mental and physical enrichment, health and wellness checks, and more.  Through adoptions, spay and neuter assistance, vaccination clinics, education and outreach, the Center serves as a critical community resource to promote and advocate for responsible pet care.  With community support and partnerships with other animal-welfare groups, our Foster, Rescue and Volunteer programs enhance and save the lives of even more homeless animals.

Animal Services Officers are on-call seven days a week to investigate citizen complaints and respond to animal emergencies 24 hours a day.  These calls include animal-related matters such as: animal abuse and neglect; law enforcement; calls regarding stray, rabid, or aggressive animals; and sick or injured wildlife. 

The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center is proud to serve as the region’s largest eco-friendly animal services and adoption center.
