Howard County Animal Control and Adoption Center


WHO WE ARE

Howard County Animal Control and Adoption Center is the county's Animal Shelter and is a division of the Howard County Police Department. We are a government agency dedicated to enforcing animal control laws, promoting the humane treatment of animals, providing adoption services, discounted spay/neuter services, and educating the public on animal issues. We handle between four and five thousand animals a year. All dogs, cats and rabbits adopted from Howard County Animal Control & Adoption Center are spayed and neutered before adoption and receive all age related vaccines.

*************************************************************************
Rabies Clinic the third Thursday of the month from 12:00 p.m.-1:30 p.m. $5.00 check or cash. Cats must be in carriers and dogs on leashes. If this is not your animal's first rabies vaccination, you are advised to bring a previous vaccination certificate in order to receive a three year vaccination. Otherwise, it will be good for a year. Please call 410-313-2780 for more information and to confirm that the clinic will be open.

There are many wonderful cats and dogs awaiting a loving home, as well as rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters.

OUR FEATURED PETS...

Meet Dog #16996-Cooper. Cooper is a male, American Foxhound mix who looks to be 4-6 years old. Cooper is a lovely dog when you are inside and everyone is being calm. He just hangs out with us in our office and likes to lay near you. He will go up and say hi to visitors too. Cooper gets excited easily, so he needs a calm and consistent home who can work with him and remind him. He loves to go for walks and he walks nicely…..until he sees another animal that he wants to go see. Then you have to be strong to walk him. :0)


Here is another one of our favorites -Cat #15547-16461
Tuesday is a 4yr old, spayed female kitty who is fun, active and playful. Tuesday is very loveable and she starts making biscuits when you talk to her. Tuesday’s favorite toy is a laser light. She loves to chase it.
