Welcome to Friends of Montgomery County Animals!

We're glad you came to visit our web site.

Since 1974 our 501(c)(3) non-profit has been devoted to making a difference for animals in our community and beyond. FMCA is funded solely by community donations and operated by dedicated volunteers. Every donation counts and makes a difference for the animals FMCA helps. We invite you to browse the information provided on our web site where our shared vision puts the human in humane. The animals thank you for your much needed support!


Not sure if a particular pet will be the perfect match? Our foster-to-adopt program is the way to go! The program is essentially a trial period so we can be sure your selection is a good fit for your home and family. This is especially helpful if you have other pets and children or just need more time to make a final decision.


The foster-to-adopt program requires a fully approved application. Applicants must be 21 years or older. All applicants must complete an application, undergo a residency and vet verification, plus a virtual interview/home visit prior to application approval. We also require a drivers’ license, or other form of ID, for each adult in the household.


We process adoptions through ShelterLuv. The first step is to complete an application:

If you do not have a specific pet in mind, please list a general description of what you are looking for, i.e. adult female cat or pair of kittens or unknown, etc. under the section titled “Which animals are you interested in?” This will allow us to quickly determine if we have what you are looking for readily available or in one of our foster homes still going through the vetting process.

You will hear from us in the next few days. Please note, FMCA is an all-volunteer organization and most of our volunteers work full-time, so please be patient.

After an applicant is fully approved and an appropriate pet is selected, we will coordinate pet transfer. We will stay in touch to monitor during the two-or three-week trial period. If it’s a go, we will finalize the adoption electronically. During the trial period, we are always available to help with items such as getting pets settled in, pet introductions and ways to help shy pets acclimate. If things don’t work out, the pet will return to FMCA.

Please email us at with any questions regarding the adoption process.
