Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC) announced in a statement that it is fully reopening its facility in Derwood on June 20.
MCASAC has continued caring for homeless animals over the course of the pandemic—at one point even welcoming 16 shelter dogs affected by Hurricane Laura—but its been operating mostly on an appointment basis.
Once MCASAC is back open, people will be welcome to visit the facility and view the animals in the shelter. The hours of operation will be the same as they were pre-COVID-19: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday the facility is open noon to 7 p.m.; on Friday, Saturday and Sunday hours are noon to 5 p.m.; and the facility is closed on Wednesdays.
Anyone interested in adopting a pet should review MCASAC’s pre-adoption checklist before visiting the shelter or submitting an adoption questionnaire.
The facility is also welcoming back group tours; anyone interested going on a group tour can click here for more information.
During hours of operation, people in need are welcome to access the Montgomery County Partners for Animal Well-Being’s walk-up Pet Food Pantry in MCASAC’s facility.
