http://mchumane.org/about.shtml Mission Statement: To create a supportive environment in which all animals are valued and appreciated for their role in human and social wellbeing while addressing overpopulation and mistreatment of animals and reducing reliance on institutional sheltering. Overview: The Montgomery County Humane Society (MCHS) in Rockville, Maryland, is a non-profit 501(c)3 animal welfare organization that has provided animal sheltering services for Montgomery County since 1958. Our funds to operate the Montgomery County Animal Shelter are provided under a grant from the Montgomery County government and from private donations. We shelter approximately 8,000 animals and service the animal-related needs of approximately 100,000 people yearly. Many of the services provided are mandated by grant contract from the county and others are mandated by our care and concern for the animals in our care. MCHS has spent approximately one million dollars in the past four years to supplement county funds, both in cost overruns and in MCHS programs. Since 1958, many millions have been spent in veterinary care. Veterinary costs are over $100,000 yearly. This money actually pays for over $200,000 in care, as many Montgomery County veterinarians bill MCHS at 50% of the normal charges. The Montgomery County Humane Society can continue to operate only with your support. Please view the other pages of our website to see the many ways you can help.
