Facts about Craic

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
I came to AWLMC from the old Montgomery County Humane Society on Rothgeb Road. I was found as a stray and taken to the shelter to find a new home. I came to AWLMC and was adopted in 2013, but was recently returned. Things did not work out for me unfortunately, so I am back at AWLMC to find a new home. In my home I was called 'Oscar'. I am a handsome all white cat with a cute pink nose. I am a very loving and friendly guy. I like to be petted and brushed. I love to have my chin scratched. I do not like to be held or carried for long periods of time. Rather, I prefer to come to you and sit beside you. I am quiet cat, unless I am hungry. Then I will let you know I am around and hungry! I like to play with toy mice and other cat nip filled toys. I had gingivitis several years ago, but have not had any issues since. As with any cat I will need regular vet visits t make sure I stay healthy. I need to be the only pet in the home. I do not like other cats. I prefer to have my humans all to myself. I will make a great, loving companion for the right home. Please come see me today! I was born in 2011.

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.
