The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center will fully reopen to the public on Sunday, June 20, officials with the county’s Office of Animal Services announced.
During the COVID-19 emergency, while the shelter was closed, OAS continued to operate the MCASAC caring for homeless animals, responding to emergencies and animal complaints.
Starting June 20, patrons may once again visit the shelter in person to view animals. All potential adopters should review the pre-adoption checklist before visiting the shelter or submitting an adoption questionnaire, which may be done online or in person.
Once the basic requirements for an adopter have been met, and the questionnaire is received, potential adopters can schedule an appointment to visit the animals online or in person. However, submitting a questionnaire does not reserve an animal for adoption, as adoptions are made on a first come, first served basis.
In addition, groups can once again schedule group tours of the facility by submitting a tour request form, and the walk-up pet food pantry from Montg0mery County Partners for Animal Well Being will again be accessible to pet owners in need during operating hours via the Adoption Center entrance.
Hours of operation will return to noon–7 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and noon–5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The shelter is closed on Wednesdays.
