Frederick, MD

Our Mission

The Animal Welfare League of Frederick County is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to ending animal homelessness.

Adoption Policy

Our adoption process includes a visit with the potential adopter, the cat or dog, and its foster parent; completion of an adoption application; an adoption interview; completion of an adoption contract; and, payment of the adoption fee. For dog adoptions, we also require a home visit.  Because our foster parents invest a lot of time, energy, personal funds, and love in preparing an animal for adoption, we rely on the foster parent to advise potential adopters about the cat’s temperament, eating/sleeping/play habits, and likes/dislikes. Accordingly, the final decision regarding the adoption rests with the foster parent. 


Cat adoptions are $150 for one cat or $200 for two cats and include spay or neuter, 2 distemper combo vaccines, 1 rabies vaccine, deworming, and micro-chipping.
