Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, MCHS has suspended pet adoptions, humane education and other programs until further notice. Of course, the animals in our care continue to receive quality care, love and attention from our staff.
Also, please note that we are unable to accept donations at our S. Stonestreet Ave. and our Wagging Tails thrift store at this time.
Please stay tuned via our web site and Facebook page for updates as the situation with COVID-19 changes. Thank you for your understanding, and please stay safe.
A letter to our supporters:
Thank you for your generous and steady support of MCHS. Because of you, we can do more work, save more lives, and have a greater impact in our community.
But COVID-19 is affecting us all, and to protect our staff and our patrons, the Montgomery County Humane Society has temporarily suspended adoptions, humane education and thrift store operations. Please rest assured, however, that the 16 animals currently in our care – cats, dogs and Guinea pigs – are well cared for, both at our Stonestreet Avenue building and in the homes of our staff.
As we settle into the world of remote work, please know that MCHS is doing everything it can to support the community. We’re staffing our phones every weekday to answer questions and provide advice and support. We’re also staying in touch with Montgomery County’s public animal shelter and others, in case our assistance is needed there. And we’ll stay in touch with you, our supporters, through newsletters and social media posts.
Many of you are asking how you can help. While we’re not currently able to accept donations of blankets and other supplies, we hope you’ll stay tuned in case our needs, or those of the community, change, and we need your help to meet them.
Also, we know that this crisis will impact the lives of many, many pets and their owners for months to come. We must be ready to help, and your financial contributions will be vital in that effort.
Finally, we’ll provide regular updates here on our web site and Facebook. In the meantime, please keep you and yours safe and healthy.
