I am a proud volunteer of this organization. The house is wonderfully homey and organized. The cats receive excellent care, lots of attention, and a personalized experience to ensure that they receive the best home possible.
I am proud to be a board member of the Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County! This organization impresses me every day by all they are able to accomplish, especially being 100% volunteer!
I recently adopted a cat from the Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County, and I'm so happy about my experience with them. I visited their facility a few times before I actually adopted my cat, and each time the volunteers were kind, informative, and patient with me. The facility itself is also a lovely home to all of the cats AWLMC rescues, so I knew my kitty was well-loved and cared for during his time with them. I have also been able to keep AWLMC updated on my cat's progress since we've brought him home via Facebook, and their continuing words of kindness and encouragement mean a lot... I can tell everyone involved there cares a great deal to volunteer with AWLMC.
Thank you AWLMC . You all have been so helpful with friendly, previously owned cats that end up in feral cat colonies and need foster until they can find a new loving home. You are so great to work with. The shelter is so beautiful and everyone is so nice.
AWLMC is a wonderful organization. I was private fostering a kitty for 9 months when I found out about AWL. I visited the facility and was very impressed by the cleanliness, and the very home-like set-up that the facility has. The workers and volunteers are friendly and out-going. I encouraged the kitty's owner to see AWL and consider moving her to AWL as the kitty was very nice and not getting any exposure to the public at my home. Sylvia(the kitty) was accepted at AWL and was adopted within 10 days!
If you are looking for a cat to join your family, please make AWL your first stop. Also if you are looking for a good group to donate to, this facility and the work they do, are very deserving of your $$. Photo is of Sylvia.
I was recently introduced to AWLMC and had a great experience with them. They really care about the animals and go the extra mile to help! I am thrilled to have a relationship with AWLMC now, so even more animals can be helped. In my dealings with them, they have been professional, prompt, and caring. On top of that, they send me pictures and keep me updated on the welfare of the cat I found. I highly recommend them.
I have been volunteering with AWLMC for about 6.5 years. It is a great organization; a place you feel you really make a difference for our cats and everyone else we help through our spay/neuter and chompers programs. I also love spending time with the cats and all the volunteers.
I have been a volunteer with AWLMC for about 5.5 years and love it! I always say if a cat has to be homeless, our shelter is the place to live. The cats live in a homelike environment, cage free with a dedicated team of volunteers that care and love for them until they find their forever home. AWLMC also offers a low cost spay/neuter program and a pet food bank for needy county residents. It is a great place to get some kitten love and make a difference in the world
I am so pleased with the efforts AWLMC makes to improve the lives of the animals and people in our community. This organization has exceptional Volunteers who will stop at nothing to continue making a difference. I am proud to be part of the leadership supporting the mission. Please take a moment to learn more about us and visit our beautiful cat shelter in Old Town Gaithersburg!
I am proud to be reviewing this great organization again this year. The organization will have been in existence for 10 years during 2015! We have helped an enormous number of cats, dogs and humans. AWLMC is able to help people prevent unwanted litters of puppies and kittens through our spay/neuter program, help people feed their pets to prevent them from being surrendered, and, when no other options are left, help people re-home their cats and kittens. We work with municipal shelters, the public and many rescue partners throughout the area. It is very rewarding to work with such dedicated caring people.
I've been a volunteer here since 2011, and am constantly impressed by the dedication of our volunteers. They go above and beyond in caring for each cat as an individual, learning each cat's personality and preferences, and helping them find their forever homes. Being involved with AWLMC is extremely rewarding for me personally, and is even more rewarding for the cats that come to us.
I've been volunteering at AWLMC for almost two years, starting after only one visit. I look forward to coming in and seeing the cats and the other volunteers. It's an excellent shelter, with good people and a comfortable environment for the cats. I love working with a no-kill shelter. Some cats stay longer than others, but they are loved and safe, and will be with us until they find their special person.
