Per Montgomery County: “The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC) is holding a fee-waived adoption event for dogs 40 pounds and over through Oct. 31. The “Find Your Boo” adoption event is sponsored by Friends of Montgomery County Animals (FMCA).
The shelter’s population of large dogs has increased. If more people do not adopt, the shelter will once more reach critical capacity, as it did over the summer. Adopters are urgently needed for medium and large dogs. If anyone is considering adding a pet to the family, now is the time. Adopting is easy and will be made even easier with no adoption fee during the special event.
“A lot of people think you need a fenced yard or a house to have a big dog, but they can be great apartment dogs,” said MCASAC Community Relations Manager Maria Anselmo. “We have all types, from couch potatoes to hiking or running buddies.”
The adoption process can be started online by filling out the adoption questionnaire and sending in the required documents. The questionnaire, required documents and more information on the adoption process can be found at https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/animalservices/adoption/howtoadopt.html.
Adopters also can visit the adoption center during open hours from noon-7 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and from noon-5 p.m. on weekends. Adoptions are processed on a first-come, first-served basis by appointment. Walk-in appointments are subject to counselor availability. Adoptions are same-day, so people should be prepared to take home an animal on the day of their appointment.
New animals regularly arrive at the shelter. People are encouraged to view adoptable animals at https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/animalservices/adoption/index.html or visit the facility during open hours.
The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC), which is operated by the Office of Animal Services, provides high standard sheltering and care to the homeless, abused and neglected animals. It is the County’s only open-admission, municipal shelter. Through adoptions, education, outreach and more, MCASAC serves as a critical community resource to promote and advocate for responsible pet care. Animal Services officers are available seven days a week to investigate complaints and respond to animal emergencies 24 hours a day.
