The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC) has teamed up with Friends of Montgomery County Animals to host Autumn Adoption Fest, a fee-waived adoption event including all species of animals, from Monday, Oct. 15 through Thursday, Oct. 25 (excluding Wednesdays). MCASAC will offer no-cost adoptions to encourage the public to adopt homeless pets and make room at the shelter for new arrivals needing placement.
“This event is going to be especially exciting because we’re temporarily changing how we do adoptions in order to decrease wait time for patrons and maximize the number of animals we can send home each day,” said Deputy Director Lex Lepiarz. MCASAC strongly encourages interested adopters to review it’s website for information about the event, including hours and applicable adoption requirements, prior to arriving at the adoption center during the promotion period.
Dedicated staff and volunteers pour their hearts into running adoption promotions in hope that the community will respond in great numbers. After a summer of high animal intakes, MCASAC has a wide-variety of pets ready to go to a new home.
The Autumn Adoption Fest hours are from noon to 7 p.m. on weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. on weekends at the adoption center, 7315 Muncaster Mill Road, Derwood.
