Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center Joins Montgomery County Partners for Animal Well-Being in Hosting Operation: Feline Freedom, a Fee-Waived Adoption Event
For Immediate Release: Tuesday, June 29, 2021
The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC) operated by the Montgomery County Office of Animal Services (OAS) will be holding a month-long adoption event from July 1 – July 31 where adoption fees will be waived for all cats and kittens. MCASAC’s Operation: Feline Freedom is sponsored by the nonprofit organization Montgomery County Partners for Animal Well-Being (MCPAW).
The summer months are a perfect time for people to welcome a new family member into their home. MCASAC will be launching the event with more than 50 cats and kittens available for adoption. New animals are made available every day.
Patrons may visit the shelter in person to adopt, or patrons can start the process online to reserve a spot to speak to a counselor. All potential adopters should review the Pre-Adoption Checklist prior to visiting or submitting a questionnaire online. Submitting a questionnaire does not reserve an animal for adoption and adoptions are first come, first served.
Guidelines for adoption, the pre-visit checklist, and the adoption questionnaire can be found at https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/animalservices/adoption/howtoadopt.html.
Shelter hours of operation are 12 p.m. – 7 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The shelter is closed to the public on Wednesdays. The shelter will be closed to the public on July 4 and reopen on July 5.
