Per Montgomery County:
Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC) is holding a fee-waived adoption event for all dogs 40 pounds and over and small animals from Thursday, June 30, through Thursday, July 7. The “Let Freedom Ring” event is sponsored by Friends of Montgomery County Animals (FMCA).
The summer months are a wonderful time to bring a new family member home. Adopting is easy—and even easier with the fees waived.
The adoption process can be started online by filling out the adoption questionnaire and sending in the required items listed on the website. More information can be found at https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/animalservices/adoption/howtoadopt.html.
New animals regularly arrive at the shelter. Patrons are encouraged to view adoptable animals at https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/animalservices/adoption/index.html.
Adoptions are processed on a first-come, first-served basis and by appointment only. Appointments can be reserved by filling out an adoption questionnaire on the website.
Patrons who submit the questionnaire and all required documents during the event, but who are unable to schedule an appointment, will receive a voucher for waived fees valid through Thursday, July 14. Potential adopters can also walk-in to adopt during the shelter’s published hours of operations and will receive a voucher if no counselors are available. Adoptions are same-day, so patrons should be prepared to take home an animal on the day of their appointment.
The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center provides high-standard sheltering and care to the homeless, abused, and neglected animals. It ensures the safety and welfare of the County’s residents. 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.
