Their animals available for adoption can be found at Petconnectrescue.org. They also have Meet and Greets and scheduled 2-3 times a month where animals can be viewed.

We at Kingsbrook Animal Hospital have the opportunity to meet many incredible animals that have been adopted from all of these wonderful animal welfare groups! Adopting an animal is a decision that should not be made lightly- Most of these animals have previously lived in other homes and deserve to find their forever home. If your not ready for adoption, all these groups are always in need for loving volunteers!

Here are some of the pet’s we’ve seen be adopted locally here in Frederick!
