As the World Health Organization has now declared the Coronavirus (COVID-19) a global pandemic, we are extending the closure of our adoption center to help keep our volunteers, clients and community safer. We hope to reopen May 1,2020. We are closely monitoring this situation to do our part in the prevention of the spread. We regret the disruption and will accept requests for adoption applications to During this time our phone lines will still be available and we will work to pick up messages as best we can. Thank you for your understanding. Please take care.

Please Donate to the Animal Welfare League of Frederick County

Please Consider a Financial Donation

How do we use donated funds?

We only use donated funds for hands-on animal care, i.e. veterinary treatments, food, medicines. We are an all-volunteer group so no monies are used for salaries. We do of course have operating expenses such as rent, electricity, and phone but we will not use your donation for any of these expenses unless you indicate otherwise.

All donations are tax-deductible and we will provide you with a receipt.
