Welcome to Friends of Montgomery County Animals!

We're glad you came to visit our web site.

Since 1974 our 501(c)(3) non-profit has been devoted to making a difference for animals in our community and beyond. FMCA is funded solely by community donations and operated by dedicated volunteers.  Every donation counts and makes a difference for the animals FMCA helps. We invite you to browse the information provided on our web site where our shared vision puts the human in humane. The animals thank you for your much needed support!

Our Mission Statement

Friends of Montgomery County Animals, Inc. is a nonprofit, tax-exempt humane organization established in 1974. The main purpose of Friends is to provide financial support for humane animal protection projects, emergencies and organizations. Humane groups traditionally operate on a shoestring. Friends is unique because it fills a void in the humane movement by providing monetary help to humane groups and for humane emergency situations.

Over the years, Friends has provided natural disaster emergency relief for: Mt. St. Helen's Rescue effort to save animals caught in the volcanic eruption; The San Francisco SPCA to help earthquake relief efforts; Dade County Animal Relief and West Palm Beach Dog Fanciers to provide medical and placement service for animal victims of Hurricane Andrew; Jefferson County Animal shelter and St. Charles Humane Society (both in Missouri) to aid flood victims in the Mid-West; and annually to EARS (Emergency Animal Rescue Service, United Animals Nation) to help animals in natural or man-made disaster anywhere and at any time!

Friends does not operate a shelter or have an office. A small cadre of dedicated humane volunteers carries out the fundraising activities. No one is paid.

Friends of Montgomery County Animals, Inc. is interested in all facets of the animal humane movement. We are particularly concerned with the humane education, spaying and neutering to reduce animal over population, cruelty cases, adoption or given up pets, the care of injured wildlife, and human-animal relationship, e.g. The Hearing Dog Program. Our efforts have been concentrated in the Washington Metropolitan area, but we also have supported nationwide projects.
