Review for Friends Of Montgomery County Animals Inc, North Potomac, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This nonprofit has been helping animals for more than 40 years. They are an all volunteer group that among other projects, helps trap and neuter outdoor cats. I came across an individual in need that was overwhelmed with 40 feral cats indoor and outside his property in need of vet care and neutering. I called several places locally and none were able to help quickly except FMCA. With swift grace a volunteer met me on the site where the cats were and scooped up the most sick ones (kittens) and put them in carriers driving them directly to the vet for care. She spoke with the caregiver and arranged to come back for the rest. She was a godsend. I felt so relieved that FMCA cared so much to quickly solve the problem. All the cats are now fixed and the population is under control, many adopted out already. I will continue to donate to them as ALL the money goes directly to the animal care and vet bills. No paid employees.

Review for Animal Welfare League Of Montgomery County Inc, Gaithersburg, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

AWLMC is an all volunteer nonprofit that runs a no kill almost cage free cat adoption shelter and a low cost spay neuter certificate program for cats and dogs. It also has a monthly pet food bank to help pet owners under hard economic times provide food for their pet so they can keep it until they are back on their feet again. I have been a volunteer there since 2010 and find my volunteer experience extremely rewarding and believe that each volunteer hour makes a HUGE difference in helping save animals. The friendly volunteers are relentless about helping in a very positive way. Our shelter is the happiest cat house you have ever seen. Our adoption rate is up by more than 60% this year. Although our annual budget is only about $160,000 per year it amazes me that we get so much done with so little money. We are truly the little shelter that can make a difference. Www.awlmc.org
