Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County has achieved so much since its inception in September 2005. We continue as an all-volunteer, not for profit organization dedicated to running our no-kill cat shelter in the Washington, DC metro area. Please come visit our adoptable cats at 12 Park Avenue, Gaithersburg, MD 20877
Our Mission Statement:
Our every effort is guided by our mission: improving the lives of Montgomery County residents and animals through programs directed at education, adoption, animal shelter, and low cost spay/neuter.
Adopting a friend
All members of the adopter's household should be present at the adoption. If not every person is present the adoption counselor will request to speak to the absent person/people on the phone.
For all adopters who rent their home we will call to confirm the pet policy before finalizing an adoption.
Current adoption fees: $75 for all cats & kittens. All animals are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. We can only accept check or cash.
Potential adopters are required to fill out an application and to be interviewed by an AWLMC addoption counselor.
We can request home visits or vet checks prior to approving anyone for adoption.
Upon approval, the adopter must sign an adoption contract.
Adopters must have proof of ID (a driver's license or other government issued identification).
We will follow up on our adoptions which can include e-mails., phone calls, home visits, and vet checks.
These rules are subject to change.
Every Saturday, 12:00PM - 3PM and every Wednesday & Friday, 6PM - 8PM
