Allegany County Animal Shelter

The Allegany County Animal Shelter serves as the municipal shelter for Allegany County and is located at 716 Furnace Street in Cumberland and is Maryland's only no kill municipal shelter.  For many years, the shelter served as the final destination for nearly 85% of the animals that entered it. In late 2010, a group of passionate citizens led the charge to change the nature of the shelter with a goal of doing as much as possible for every animal, every day. It was the first step on the journey to becoming A Shelter of Hope.

As part of the new philosophy, the shelter is transitioning into an expanded role as a community service organization, providing information and resources to those with animal issues that wish to keep their pets and a safe haven for those who are unable to. Our expanding programs and services are designed to address the needs of all animals — and to provide support, education, and assistance for all the people that care about them. Most of all, we work every day to reflect the incredible passion of the many animal lovers in our community.
