Facts about Scout

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Scout is a shy and very cute girl, born 6/21/2015. But, like other tortico kitties, Scout gives lots of affection once she gets to know you. Her sweet, timid meow lets you know she’s around and wants some love. Don’t let her slight limp fool you. Scout can be very spry and playful. After several check-ups and x-rays, the vet has not been able to determine the cause of her limp. Scout doesn’t seem to be bothered by it and remains unfettered. Scout also has a heart murmur, so takes heart medication each morning like a pro. After a little time to warm-up to someone new, Scout is sure to make an affectionate, loving companion.

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 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.
