Captain's Info...

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.

Captain's Story...
I was born in DC to a beautiful calico mom. I am a beautiful long haired black and white girl. My front feet are very cute. Just the tips of them are white, making it look like I had a recent pedicure! I have a boy’s name because everyone thought I was a boy until I went in for my neuter surgery and found out I was a girl! My foster mom decided to keep my name. I like it, it makes me feel special. I am considered a special needs cat because I was born with the herpes virus. The official name of what I have is Chronic Rhinitis. I am healthy now, but my new family has to make sure I see the vet regularly and that I stay up to date on my vaccinations. I am healthy now. The only lasting effects I have sometimes are sneezing and runny eyes. I am adorable and very loving and affectionate. I will sit with you and purr the whole time. I am social and like other cats and dogs. I am young and still very active. I love to play!! I like any toys and love when my humans will play with me. I am ready for new home. Please stop in and see me at the shelter on Saturdays. I was born in April 2012.

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: $125 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, although we hope to be able to accept credit cards in the future.

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.
