Autumn Adoption Fest Means No-Cost Adoptions at County Animal Shelter
The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC) has teamed up with Friends of Montgomery County Animals to host an "Autumn Adoption Fest," a fee-waived adoption event including all species of animals, through Thursday, October 25 (excluding Wednesdays when the center is closed).
MCASAC will offer no-cost adoptions to encourage the public to adopt homeless pets and make room at the shelter for new arrivals needing placement.
“This event is going to be especially exciting because we’re temporarily changing how we do adoptions in order to decrease wait time for patrons and maximize the number of animals we can send home each day,” said MCASAC Deputy Director Lex Lepiarz. “MCASAC strongly encourages interested adopters to review its website for information about the event, including hours and applicable adoption requirements, prior to arriving at the Adoption Center during the promotion period.”
Dedicated staff and volunteers pour their hearts into running adoption promotions with the hope that the community will respond in great numbers. After a summer of high animal intakes, largely the result of multiple hoarding cases investigated by the Montgomery County Police Animal Services Division, the MCASAC has a wide variety of pets ready to go to a new home.
The MCASAC is located at 7315 Muncaster Mill Road in Derwood. For more details on how to be adoption ready and what is required to take home a new furry friend check out the MCASAC’s webpage. All the animals pictured in this article were available for adoption at the time of publication.
