  2. Kamenetz Issues Statement on Passing of Governor Marvin Mandel

    Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz Issued the Following Statement:

    "The State of Maryland lost a true gentleman yesterday with the passing of Governor Marvin Mandel. Like so many others, I was honored to call him both a friend and mentor.

    During his time as Governor, he reshaped government in Maryland as we had come to know it. Many of his reforms are still evident today. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Mandel family.”

  4. Make this Labor Day a Labor of Love: Adopt a Shelter Pet!

    Half-Price Adoption Fees Through September 12

    This Labor Day, Baltimore County is encouraging residents to celebrate by performing a labor of love — adopting a new dog or cat from the Baltimore County Animal Shelter.

    Adoption fees will be reduced by 50 percent from September 1 to 12, which means residents pay just $25 to adopt a dog and $20 to adopt a cat.

    The reduced fee includes a pet that has:

    • been spayed or neutered
    • had a complete veterinary exam
    • its first set of vaccinations
    • been micro-chipped with a lifetime registration
    • a Baltimore County license (an annual license is required for dogs and cats) 

    “People have been quite responsive to these holiday adoption discount programs, so we are offering discounted adoption fees before and after Labor Day weekend,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. “It’s a great deal and a wonderful opportunity to bring some positive energy into your home.”

    New Shelter Hours

    Starting September 1, those who wish to pick out an “unFURgettable friend” may visit the shelter during its new adoption hours. Shelter adoption hours will be from noon to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. Residents can pay their adoption fee with cash, check or credit card. Please note that lost pets can be redeemed seven days a week.

    “This Labor Day, opening your heart and home to a new pet offers a wide range of health benefits at half the cost,” said Dr. Gregory Wm. Branch, Director of Health and Human Services. “Not only can it help reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and loneliness, owning a pet can also increase opportunities for exercise, outdoor activities and socialization.”

    Available Animals

    View a complete listing of all the wonderful animals at Baltimore County Animal Shelter. You can also call 410-887-PAWS for more information on a specific pet or the adoption process.
