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.
Meet Dog #15034--Sweetie is a young adult, female, mixed breed. For sake of calling her a breed, we are calling her a Lab mix. Sweetie has done well with other dogs who are confident and well socialized around dogs. If you have a dog at home, you can bring them in to see how they get alone. Sweetie has a lovely disposition. She will lean on you and will make a wonderful family companion. Sweetie will benefit from a training class. She listens very well if you are firm and tell her what you want.
Here is another one of our favorites -Cat #14924-Leland
Leland is a lovely, male, Oriental Shorthair mix. He looks like a Siames except he is all black. Leland is a lovely boy. He is gentle and laid back. Leland gets along with other cats well and he likes to go running around playing with them. After playtime, you will find Leland laying upside down, snuggled up in a box. He loves to sleep in his whicker cat furniture, as you can see in his picture. :0)
You can now help the animals as well as the environment by donating newspapers and aluminum cans to be recycled, as well as your used cell phones. These donations will be used to raise much-needed funds for emergency veterinary services and other shelter necessities. Give some thought as you "PAWS" for the cause. Your donation could help save a life.
We have chosen Kuranda dog beds for our boarding facilities because they are so good for our dogs. We still don't have enough for all of our kennels. If you would like to donate a bed so another dog can sleep in proper comfort, please click here.
