Montgomery County
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

The MCSPCA, founded in 1973, is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the humane treatment of animals. We are independent, locally based, and funded completely by donations. We receive no financial support from the ASPCA or from any federal, state, or county government agencies.

Because we are an all-volunteer organization, all funds go directly to helping the animals in our care. Your donations are tax-deductible.

Also, please remember us in your will. When you're gone, your kindness can live on through a bequest to the MCSPCA. We will continue to provide loving care for needy dogs, cats, and other animals through your generosity.

Our Adoption Program

We generally hold cat adoption open houses every week at local Petco or PetsMart locations. Appointments can also be arranged to visit our adoptable cats at other times.

The MCSPCA facilitates dog adoptions through referrals. We also maintain a list of dog breed rescue organizations for people who are looking for a particular breed of dog.

Our veterinarian provides comprehensive medical care for the MCSPCA cats and kittens until they are adopted. The adoption fee also includes spaying or neutering.

Our Foster Program

Many of the cats that come to us need special attention. They may need socialization, medical care, or just some extra TLC. We also periodically get litters of very young kittens that need to be fed every few hours. Through our Foster Care Program, we place these animals temporarily in volunteers' homes. The animal gets the extra attention it needs to become adoptable and the foster family gets the rewarding experience of watching an animal thrive because of their love and care.

Our Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program

The MCSPCA runs the area's lowest cost spay/neuter program for dogs and cats with the help of participating veterinarians in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC. In two easy steps - a call to the MCSPCA and the mailing of your payment - you can obtain a certificate for spay/neuter surgery at greatly reduced cost.

The MCSPCA has facilitated thousands of spays and neuters since we pioneered this program over 20 years ago. We consider it to be one of our biggest success stories.

Spay or Neuter
Your Pet!!!

Volunteer Opportunities

The MCSPCA's team of dedicated volunteers make a wonderful and substantial difference in the lives of the animals and people we serve.

Our greatest need is volunteers to provide foster homes for cats awaiting adoption.

We also need volunteers to help with in the following areas:

The MCSPCA is funded solely by your donations. We are an all volunteer organization, so all funds go directly to helping the animals by providing food, shelter, and medication. If you can find it in your heart and budget to make a donation to the MCSPCA, no matter how small, it will help the animals tremendously.
