Frederick Friends of Our County Animal Shelter's Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

We screen all applicants using their personal reference, vet reference, landlord check (if applicable), and criminal background check.

2. Interview

The interview is a chance for both adopter and rescue volunteer to ask questions or discuss any concerns.

3. Home Check

We do our home visits virtually. Typically, we use Zoom, but we will work with you to find an approach that works for you.

4. Approve Application

5. Meet the Pet

We can do a virtual meet n greet or, for all but the most timid kitties, we can bring them to an in-person adoption event.

6. Pay Fee

7. Take the Pet Home

We will either deliver the kitty to you, meet you halfway (if you live outside of Frederick County), or meet you at an adoption event.

For an application, please email:

About Frederick Friends of Our County Animal Shelter

Our mission is to support and facilitate the lifesaving work of our local county shelter (Frederick County Animal Control) by providing the resources to:

- treat and rehabilitate animals with medical and behavioral needs who might otherwise have to be humanely euthanized;
- enrich the shelter environment and reduce the amount of time any animal stays in the shelter, minimizing the chance for new behavior or health problems to develop;
- recruit volunteers and foster care providers who are able to work with special needs animals; and
- help families keep the pets they have and avoid surrendering pets to the shelter.

We serve as a safety net for the homeless pets of Frederick County. To help achieve our mission, we have a rescue program (Cats with Character) as well as a shelter intake prevention program (Project Hope). We work closely with the Frederick shelter's barn cat program, Barn Cat Buddies. Through Project Hope, we are sometimes asked to help rehome animals who are still living with their owners.

On our Adoptapet page, you will find our available cats and kittens, kitties who came through Barn Cat Buddies but who would do well in an indoor home, and animals coming through Project Hope who are looking for a new home.

Come Meet Frederick Friends of Our County Animal Shelter's Pets

We list all of our kitties here on Adoptapet as well as on Petfinder. Many of our kitties go to adoption events at a Frederick PetSmart store. Please be aware that kitties typically do not show their true personality at an adoption event. Check our facebook events page for upcoming adoption events:
