  (FAQs )

How long do you keep animals?

As long as the animals are healthy, have good temperaments, and there is sufficient cage space or an available foster home, animals are kept until they are adopted.

How do I give up an animal?

We are not currently accepting animals from the general public. The animals in our care come from area municipal shelters.

Are you a government agency?

The Montgomery County Humane Society is not a government agency. We are private, non-profit 501 (c)(3) animal welfare organization that is funded by individual donors, businesses, and grants. This includes such programs as our private rescue shelter, foster home care, humane education, offsite adoption events, volunteer training, and many others.

What is your donor privacy policy?

The Montgomery County Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
