Please be advised that on Sunday, December 4th, operations of the Montgomery County Animal Services & Adoption Center (MCASAC) will experience serious disruptions to its operations due to maintenance being performed on its fiber-optic system. MCASAC will remain open but please be patient as there will be delays in our operations.

ANNOUNCEMENT  11.14.2016

We are currently evaluating a health matter in our cat and kitten adoption areas. Don’t worry – the kitties are okay! We just want to make sure that if there are existing germs, that they don’t spread! So…until further notice, these areas will be closed to the public as we begin our customary safety and well-being assessment protocols and we will have a limited number of cats available for adoption. Thank you for your understanding. Any questions can be directed to but we will keep you posted here and on social media!
