The Animal Welfare League of Frederick County offers several programs to raise funds; assist the community by providing resources, information and financial assistance; and is working towards coalitions with other humane organizations. Our goal is to educate the community to be responsible pet owners and prevent animal over-population.
Pet Holiday Stockings
Every fall, we begin to prepare for the holidays by making Holiday Stockings for your beloved cats and dogs. These stockings are filled with love in the form of treats, toys and lots of yummy goodies for your furry friend.
Fixing Frederick Felines
"Fixing Frederick Felines" reduces the number of free-roaming cats in Frederick County by using an established method called "Trap, Neuter, and Return" (TNR). This method reduces the number of unwanted litters of kittens and improves the overall health and welfare of County farm/feral cats. TNR includes humanely trapping free-roaming cats, transporting them to veterinarians for spaying/neutering and vaccinations, assisting with litters of kittens that may be eligible for adoption if appropriate, and releasing back into their original habitat cats who are too wild for human contact.
Foster Care is a temporary home for displaced and unwanted companion animals until a loving permanent home can be found. These animals may be too young for adoption, may be pregnant, may need medication for illness or injury, training or simply some extra time.
Madge Grable Fund
This perpetual assistance fund is used to subsidize one senior's adoption fee per month when they adopt from the Frederick County Animal Shelter.
$25.00 Tax-deductible fee goes towards spay/neuter programs.
Shelter Me Fund
The Animal Welfare League of Frederick County (AWLFC) is pleased to announce the formation of the "Shelter Me" Medical Fund for Dogs. The purpose of the fund is to assist with the costs of canine medical care at the Frederick County Animal Control Center and Shelter.
