Brief: Name Own Adoption Fee This Month

— Through Jan. 31, the Montgomery County Humane Society, located at the Montgomery County Animal Shelter, 14645 Rothgeb Drive, is allowing adopters to name their own adoption fee for the shelter’s cats, dogs and other animals.

An additional cost is the county’s pet licensing fee which is required for all Montgomery County residents’ pets.

Prospective adopters should come prepared. Here's what to bring:

  • Please bring a government-issued ID and proof of address if current address is not on the ID.

  • If renting a home, bring proof of the landlord's approval to have a pet.

  • Collars, leashes, and cat carriers will be available for purchase, or bring your own.

  • Adopters may name their own adoption fee through Jan. 31.
