Message from the CEO

crisblur1Welcome to MCHS!

The Montgomery County Humane Society is the pre-eminent animal welfare organization in Montgomery County, helping animals find safety, love, quality care, loving homes, and a new chance at a happy life.

In April, 2014 MCHS became fully independent and 100% privately funded. We take cats and dogs out of overcrowded public shelters and give them the tender loving care, socialization, enrichment, and new homes they so desperately need and deserve. Our highly successful adoption program has enabled us to save nearly 500 animals in our first year of private operation!

As a private, no-kill rescue we offer a range of services designed to help people adopt new pets and then keep them in their homes and out of shelters. We provide adoption and post-adoption assistance, humane education for all ages, and outreach programs that help pet owners take better care of their pets and build a more humane, animal-friendly community.

Please check out this web site and all that MCHS has to offer. As you do, keep in mind that we depend on your generous donations to carry out our work. There are many ways you can help, and every contribution mean so much to the well-being of the homeless animals in our care.

On behalf of our wonderful animals, thank you.
