The Montgomery County Humane Society, Inc. (MCHS) is committed to ensuring the public health and safety of all Montgomery County citizens and their domestic pets.
MCHS will adopt American Bull-Type Terriers (includes Staffordshire terriers, American Bulldogs, and mixes) to applicants who rent their homes; however proof of landlord permission must be provided. If an applicant lives with his/her parents, then the parent must adopt the dog. Pit bulls and mixes will not be adopted to residents of Prince George’s County, Baltimore City or any other jurisdiction where pit bulls are not allowed.
Current pit bull owners wishing to adopt a second pit bull must have the current dog evaluated by an MCHS staff member. The dog must pass this evaluation.
