The Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County was founded in 2005 and moved to its beautiful home in downtown Gaithersburg, Maryland in 2011. In this homey atmosphere, our rescued cats live in their own furnished rooms with screened doors and much enrichment and care to ensure they are healthy and happy. We also always have a special cat who is given the run of the house. Our goal is to rescue strays and give-ups from high-kill shelters in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area and then foster them for a period to ascertain their health and get them the medical support they need such as neutering, shots, medicines and love. Then, they come to AWLMC Shelter and await their forever homes with you.
