The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center has extended its “Home for the Holidays” fee-waived animal adoption event through Dec. 31, officials announced.
Friends of Montgomery County Animals is sponsoring the adoption event.
“Thank you to everyone who has shared our plea, visited the adoption center, and adopted since the beginning of the holiday promotion,” said Adoption Supervisor Faith Koleszar in a press release. “We asked for help and our call was answered. We are so grateful for the support we received. Because of our community, we have doubled the number of people coming in through the doors every day and over 100 animals have been adopted. In thanks and celebration, I am so happy FMCA offered to extend this promotion and do more good before the new year.”
There are still many animals in need of homes at the shelter. A wide range of animals are available for adoption, including birds, guinea pigs, rabbits, reptiles, cats, and dogs.
In order to begin the adoption process, adopters may complete the adoption questionnaire online, or they may visit the Adoption Center in person to view the available animals. Adopters are encouraged to view the available animals online before visiting.
Adoptions are conducted on a first-come, first-served basis by appointment. Walk-in appointments are subject to counselor availability. Adoptions are conducted on the same day and animals are not held for adopters, so they should be prepared to take the animal home on the same day.
The Adoption Center is located at 7315 Muncaster Mill Rd. in Derwood. The main phone number is (240) 773-5900.
The center is closed on Wednesdays to visitors, who may visit from noon to 7 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
