Facts about Jag

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Jag is an eight year old cat who was given up when his family could no longer provide for his basic care. He loves to be with people and will gladly curl up with you. His favorite pastime is spending time with his foster family on the couch while watching the outside world though the windows. Jag was once an outdoor cat and he still enjoys listening to the sounds from outside. In his previous homes, he lived with dogs, cats, and older children. He would likely do well in this environment again if given time to adjust. He has a lot of love to offer and would do best in a family that wants to spend time with him.

To adopt you must first complete an adoption application and either come to an adoption event or arrange to meet the cat in its foster home. We do not do same day adoptions so, generally, we can only adopt within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

About Montgomery County SPCA

About Our Rescue Group...

The MCSPCA, founded in 1973, is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the humane treatment of animals. We are independent, locally based, and funded completely by donations. We receive no financial support from the ASPCA or from any federal, state, or county government agencies.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We generally hold cat adoption open houses every week at local Petco or PetsMart locations. See our website www.mcspca.org for details on upcoming events. Appointments can also be arranged to visit our adoptable cats at other times.

The MCSPCA facilitates dog adoptions through referrals. We also maintain a list of dog breed rescue organizations for people who are looking for a particular breed of dog.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Fees:

* A $100 adoption fee is required for cats.
* A $150 adoption fee is required for kittens under 1yr. of age.
* A $150 adoption fee is required for dogs under 50lbs
* A $175 adoption fee is required for dogs over 50lbs
* A $225 adoption fee is required for puppies or dogs with special medical needs (including sighthounds because of the anesthesia requirements)

We accept cash and checks only, no credit cards. The fee includes the cost of spay/neuter, initial vaccinations, heartworm testing (for dogs), FeLV/FIV testing (for cats), deworming, and general care of the animals during their stay at the MCSPCA (food, litter, medication, vet care, etc.).
An adoption application, vet check, and interview with a counselor are required to ensure that appropriate placements are made. A home visit may also be required.

* ALL members of a household must be present for the adoption process.
* If you rent your home, you must provide your landlord’s name and phone number. Landlord consent is required prior to adoption. To expedite this process, you can provide a copy of your lease or a signed statement from your landlord specifying the pet policy.

* The MCSPCA seeks the best possible homes for the animals in our care, and we reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone.

*Upon approval, an adoption contract must be completed and signed.
*An adoption counselor will follow up each adoption with telephone calls and/or home visits.
