Mission: To improve animal welfare in Montgomery County by operating a no-kill shelter for adoptable cats and promoting responsible pet ownership. AWLMC is committed to ending the euthanasia of adoptable animals in Montgomery County. With this in mind, we are partnering with the county shelter to help save the most at-risk animals. In order to save as many cats as possible, we have opened a no-kill, cage-free shelter in Gaithersburg.

Results: We've distributed 3665 spay-neuter certificates, 1193 for dogs and 2472 for cats since our Spay-Neuter program began. 1075 were free certificates. We've distributed 37,923 lbs. of cat and dog food to needy pet owners over the past 10 years through our Chompers Pet food bank. We have adopted out over 1,300 cats since our organization was formed 10 years ago.
