The Maryland Department of Agriculture's State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners recently passed rules for the minimum standards of care in Maryland animal shelters. To comply with these standards, our after hours drop off kennel and cage area is now closed to the public. Please do not place any animals in this area. Our hours of operation for animals to be dropped off in the main lobby area are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and from 8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays
Tri-County Animal Shelter (TCAS) serves the animal needs of Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's Counties. We are the only government-run shelter for the tri-county area.
Lost and stray animals (stray cats, stray dogs, stray other) are housed here waiting to be claimed by their owners. If your animals is housed at the shelter, we charge fees to cover the cost of caring for your pet. More
Some animals are waiting on a rescue partner to assist them in finding forever homes. These animals are only available to approved rescue partners.
Pets are an important part of our communities. Please help us keep our counties safe, clean and friendly places to live through responsible, humane pet ownership.
