    A key responsibility of the Animal Management Division (AMD) is to protect the public and animals in the County by ensuring that dogs, cats and ferrets are properly licensed and inoculated against rabies. AMD also issues animal holding facility licenses for grooming establishments, boarding facilities, pet shops and animal shows.

  5. Lost & Found

    If you have lost your pet please call us at 301-780-7250. It is also advisable to visit our shelter periodically. Bring in a picture of your pet to match with the lost report.

  6. Spaying & Neutering

    Each year, millions of unwanted and homeless animals are born in this country. Of those that end up in shelters, some will be adopted, but many will be "put to sleep" (euthanized). One of the most important things you can do for your pet is to have him spayed or neutered.
