Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The Allegany County Animal Shelter serves as the municipal shelter for Allegany County and is located at 716 Furnace Street in Cumberland. For many years, the shelter served as the final destination for nearly 85% of the animals that entered it. In late 2010, a group of passionate citizens led the charge to change the nature of the shelter with a goal of doing as much as possible for every animal, every day. It was the first step on the journey to becoming A Shelter of Hope.

As part of the new philosophy, the shelter is transitioning into an expanded role as a community service organization, providing information and resources to those with animal issues that wish to keep their pets and a safe haven for those who are unable to. Our expanding programs and services are designed to address the needs of all animals — and to provide support, education, and assistance for all the people that care about them. Most of all, we work every day to reflect the incredible passion of the many animal lovers in our community.

About Our Shelter:

The Allegany County Animal Shelter serves as a “Shelter of Hope” for the lost, abandoned, and homeless animals of Allegany County. We strive to expand and strengthen our leadership in animal care, humane education, and progressive animal welfare programs and to find common-sense solutions for animal-related problems in our community.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are located at 716 Furnace St in Cumberland, MD. 21502. Our hours are M-F 11-4 and Sat 9-2.

Our Adoption Process:

Our current adoption fees are $80 for dogs and $60 for cats. This fee includes the animal's spay or neuter, vaccinations and microchipping.

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.
