Want to help improve the lives of animals at the shelter? Get involved! Once your volunteer training is complete, you can walk, play, and train these awesome pups to make their transition to home life seamless. The Adoption Center would love to have friendly faces taking dogs for walks, getting them socialized, and giving them a break from the kennel. Plus the dogs will appreciate it, too!



The goals for our foster program are to help some of the dogs get comfortable in a home environment. MCFACC reviews animals to take into foster from the Montgomery County Animal Care and Adoption Center on a case by case basis. We consider animals that have
extenuating circumstances that may be difficult to adopt out. This includes animals that may have behavioral or medical needs. All animals considered for foster will undergo behavioral assessment tests by an approved and qualified animal behaviorist.


Applications are received on an on-going basis and are considered when a particular need arises. Foster placements are approved by a majority vote of the Montgomery County Friends of Animal Care and Control Board of Directors. All animals will be up to date and sterilized prior to foster placement.



Want to do more? Have other ideas to help? Reach out to us! We'd love to hear your thoughts and are always looking for new ideas to better FACC and the animals we strive to help every day.
