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.

OUR FEATURED PETS...

Meet Cat #17141- Are you looking for one cat who is very loving? Then come on by and meet little Jessie. She is the most darling kitty and just loves people. Jessie is snuggly and enjoys being held. You will even find her climbing into bed with you for a snuggle. Jessie enjoys using cardboard kitty scratching posts and she really likes to chase feather toys that we dangle for her. Jessie prefers to be the only cat of the household.


Here is another one of our favorites -Dog #17828
Polly is a fun and energetic mixed breed. She looks a bit like a Collie. Polly is very affectionate and loves to go outside to run around. Polly appears to be 6yrs old. Polly is sensitive around her ears, so she would do best in a home with considerate children who are old enough to understand this. Polly has gotten along with some dogs. If you have a dog at home, feel free to call about bringing them into visit with Polly.
