Animal Intake

The Montgomery Humane Society is an open-admission shelter accepting any animal from Montgomery City/County including the very elderly, ill, aggressive, or injured.

Due to the recent COVID surge and staffing shortages, the shelter does not accept owner surrender animals or stray animals from outside Montgomery County.

Our Animal Intake Department is open to the residents of Montgomery City/County, 7 days a week, Monday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The Shelter accepts stray animals and owned animals.

An appointment is required to surrender your pet or drop off a stray.  Click here to request an appointment.

If you are a Montgomery City/County resident  having difficulty caring for your pet and would prefer to keep your pet but need help doing so, you may apply for our Intervention Program.  The program assists with pet food, vet bills, pet deposits, dog houses and more.

Please consider rehoming your pet as opposed to surrendering him to the shelter by using a pet rehoming website such as Home To Home or
