The Allegany County Animal Shelter is proud to be the first and only one of two no-kill municipal shelters in the state of Maryland. The shelter is managed by ACAS Management Foundation, a 501C3 non-profit organization.
The Allegany County Animal Shelter serves as a "Shelter of Hope" for the lost, abandoned, and homeless animals of Allegany County. We strive to expand and strengthen our leadership in animal care, humane education, and progressive animal welfare programs and to find common-sense solutions for animal-related problems in our community.
Our vision is to guarantee a good home to all companion animals that are healthy and behaviorally sound. To do all we can for dogs and cats that are medically treatable and can be behaviorally rehabilitated. To develop constructive relationships that advances our mission and vision with our city/county governments, other animal-welfare stakeholders and the people of our community.
