Facts about Paolo

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
I was brought to the county shelter as a stray, but I was already neutered so most likely I had a home at some point in my life. It was apparent I had a bit of a rough go of it on the streets. Too bad I can't talk! I am a small, handsome gray and white boy with a cute pink nose. I have a friendly, easy-going disposition. I am a little apprehensive when I meet new people for the first time, but give me a few minutes to assess you and I will be fine. I have got to make sure you are a cat person after all! I love people and will snuggle up with you on your lap or your chest. I purr, give head-butts, kisses and rub up against people. I am very happy to be safe and warm now. I don't mind being picked up and held either. I am a quiet, happy lovebug of a cat looking for is forever home. Stop by and see me soon. I was born in 2013.

About Animal Welfare League-Montgomery County

About Our Shelter...

As many of you may already know, we have a mission: To enhance the lives of Montgomery County Maryland residents and animals through programs directed at education, adoption, animal shelter, and low cost spay/neuter. The AWLMC is committed to ending the euthanasia of adoptable animals in Montgomery County Maryland. With this in mind, we are partnering with the county shelter to help save the most at-risk animals. Currently, we are only working with cats. We hope to be able to add a dog program soon.

In order to save as many cats as possible, we have opened a no-kill shelter in Gaithersburg. We need your help in the form of direct financial donations and by volunteering your time. Our organization is strong and full of highly dedicated volunteers of all ages, backgrounds, professions and abilities. We are working together to save the lives of cats and kittens, to find them loving, forever homes and to have them spay/neutered. All of our cats and kittens are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

We are the Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County.

Our Adoption Process...

All members of the adopter's household should be present at the adoption.

For all adopters who rent their home, we must see a copy of the adopter's lease or rental agreement showing that pets are allowed.

Current adoption fees: $75 for adults (cats over 1 year old) and kittens.
All of our cats and kittens are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. We currently accept only check or cash.

Potential adopters are required to fill out an application and to be interviewed by an AWLMC adoption counselor.

We can request home visits or vet checks prior to approving anyone for adoption.

Upon approval, the adopter must sign an adoption contract.

Adopters must have proof of ID (a driver's license or other government issued identification).

We will follow up on our adoptions which can include e-mails, phone calls, home visits, and vet checks.

These rules are subject to change.
