COVID-19 Safety Measures at the Shelter
Your temperature will be taken prior to entering the main area of our shelter. We ask that our visitors wash hands, wear a mask, and maintain social distancing. You can meet your cat in one of the rooms that we have designated specifically for our adoption appointments. If you wish to see other cats, they will be brought to you in this room. This room is sanitized after every visitor. Only one family/visitor is allowed into the shelter at a given time.

All of our cats and kittens are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.

About Animal Welfare League-Montgomery County

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.

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.
