When you adopt an animal from the Montgomery County Humane Society, not only are you providing your new pet with a forever home, but you are supporting our work, so we can care for many more animals in need.

MCHS has taken care to keep adoption costs low. Please keep in mind that microchips, vaccinations, preventative care and tests, spay/neuter surgeries and the feeding and care of a healthy animal in our shelter costs $250 on average. As an open admission shelter, we accept all animals, including a number that come to us with medical issues, which can quickly increase the cost of care to $500 or more per animal.

Licensing
Montgomery County requires that all dogs and cats be licensed. Information is available here.

The MCHS pre-adoption spay-neuter program is funded in part by a grant from the Newman’s Own Foundation.
