Cat Intake Policies
Cats are a new addition for the Animal Care and Adoption Center. Montgomery County residents may give their cats up for adoption if they can no longer take care of them. Kittens and injured cats will also be taken into the Center to receive care and new
homes. If you are bringing your cat to the center for adoption, please call and make an appointment so we can ensure we have space to accommodate your cat.

Annual Shelter Statistics

Live Release Rates
A shelter’s “Live Release Rate” is the number of live outcomes divided by the number of total outcomes.
The Center gives every animal in its care the time and support needed to find a loving home. However, because the Center takes in some very vulnerable and sick animals--including newborn orphaned animals--some of the animals in our care do pass away or
are humanely euthanized to end suffering due to incurable disease.
*The Animal Care and Adoption Center opened in April 2017. Statistics prior to that time are from the former animal shelter.
