Humane Society of Kent County Maryland Inc.

We are an open-admission animal shelter, and welcome every animal in need that we can legally accept.As an open-admission shelter, we take in many animals who may not be immediate candidates for adoption. Whenever possible, our foster parents work with these animals to rehabilitate them and qualify them for adoption to good homes.There is no set limit to the length of time an animal can remain in our adoption program. As long as we have space, and the pet appears to be able to maintain good physical and emotional health in our kennel environment (or foster home), the pet will remain in our program.Every animal, however long it remains in our adoption program, is guaranteed a clean, safe, comfortable space, nutritious food and fresh water, medical supervision and, when needed, care and supplies, as well as interaction with volunteers who groom, exercise, and socialize with them.We do our best to move young puppies and kittens and other special-needs animals into foster care, where they remain until they are ready for adoption. We also work with breed-specific groups to find homes for some animals, in order to maintain space within our own shelter. We do everything in our power to avoid the euthanasia of healthy animals, or of animals who can be rehabilitated or go to homes that will provide care for a lifetime. We are able to find new homes for the great majority of our pets and appreciate your continued support as we push towards a low-kill community. To reach this goal, we are working to create not a no-kill shelter, but a low-kill community where all adoptable animals are able to find forever loving homes. These are the steps we are taking to achieve that effect:Maintain a widespread effort to promote spaying and neutering of all companion animalsContinually increase the number of shelter animals that are adopted to new homes through our programs.Encourage responsible pet ownership through public-awareness campaigns, humane education programs, and efforts to legally eliminate puppy mills and backyard breedersSupporting pet owners through training classes, counseling, and referrals to outside information sourcesThe Humane Society of Kent County Maryland, Inc is a private, charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are not affiliated with any other animal-welfare organization, locally or nationally. We rely entirely on the income from our community and on donations from the public in order to keep our doors open.We invite you to become more involved by becoming a volunteer or a foster parent. See our Programs link for information on how to do this.

Meet Audrey Rocio Ramirez

Audrey arrived at ACSKC at just weeks old with her momma and two sisters. One sister was a tabby, the other a calico, and their mom was a tortie--combined with Audrey's tuxedo, the litter was made up of a variety of colors and patterns! Audrey's black and white fur is VERY soft. Her left eye is a bit cloudy, but it doesn't impede her in any way.Audrey likes attention, it just takes her a while to realize that she *wants* the attention. Her ideal home would be a calm space with people who will give her time to settle into her new surroundings and get to know her knew people. She is easily won over with Squeezy Treats!Audrey would do very well with another cat in the home as feline companions bring out her confidence!Audrey is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped! If you are interested in meeting any of our animals, we encourage you to first visit our website, to get started.Once your adoption application has been approved, we will call you to set up an appointment to meet with the pet! You are also welcome to visit us at our NEW LOCATION at 10168 Worton Road, Chestertown, MD 26120.

Adoption Process
Our application process includes a reference check, vet check, and landlord approval. Fees vary depending on the adoption.

Look for other cats for adoption!
