For Immediate Release: Thursday, April 28, 2022
The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC) operated by the Montgomery County Office of Animal Services is waiving adoption fees for all animals during National Pet Week, May 1-7. The event is sponsored in part by Montgomery County Partners for Animal Wellbeing (MCPAW).Additionally, anyone who submits an adoption questionnaire between May 1 and May 7 will receive a voucher valid through May 21 for a fee-waived adoption.
Standard adoption procedures are still in place. Interested adopters should visit the website to view available pets. An appointment can be made by filling out the application online, calling the shelter at 240-773-5900 during business hours, or walking in. Patrons with scheduled appointments will have priority over walk-ins. Submitting a questionnaire does not reserve an animal for adoption and adoptions are first come, first served by appointment. Information on how to adopt can be found at https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/animalservices/adoption/howtoadopt.html.
