It’s a summer different than any other. Many are working from home, traveling options are limited, so perhaps now is the perfect time to adopt a furry family member.
Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center in Derwood plans to reopen for the public on August 6. It had been closed since March because of the coronavirus.
All adoptions will be conducted by appointment only for continued safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Click here for more information on appointment scheduling, and to view available animals.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, people have shown great concern for the homeless pets of MCASAC. We’ve sent more animals into foster care than ever before, and continue to admit animals into our facility. We hope that the community continues to provide support, in the form of adoptions, once we reopen on August 6,” said MCASAC Deputy Executive Director Lex Lepiarz.
