Facts about Hunter

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
My name is Hunter, and I need your help. In 2012, I came to the AWLMC when my family was having financial difficulties and had to give me up. It took me a long time to find a home, to find the right fit, and when I did it was perfect for me. I was an only pet living in the country with a special retired person. Now my world has been turned upside down again. You see, my person was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given only 3-6 months to live. He wants the best for me, to keep me safe, and asked the AWLMC to try to find me a new home, again. So here I am again. I am a sweet boy, but independent. I like to rub against you and sit quietly with you while you watch TV or read. I will also sleep in bed with you at night. I need to find a quiet, adults only home. If you’ve been waiting for a sign....if you have ever wanted to make a difference in the world, please consider that this may be the time to consider adopting a shelter cat. If the stars are aligned, maybe it will be me. I would also like to ask you to please share the word about me. Maybe I will be the perfect cat for your best friend. I need your love and support. I was born in 2006.

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. 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.
