All visitors are welcome regardless of location. Animals taken into the shelter are from the city of Bowie.
The Friends of the Bowie Animal Shelter is a non-profit group that raises funds to raise awareness of our shelter and issues facing the animals in our community. We also raise money to take care of the day to day needs of the animals and any medical needs.
Come Meet our Pets:
Shelter is opened Monday -Friday by appointment with the animal control officer and the 1st and 2nd weekend is kept open by shelter volunteers from 9-3 sometimes earlier or later.
Our Adoption Process:
The adoption fee is $20 and then the adopter is responsible for the shots and spay/neuter of the pet.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
