Due to COVID-19, most facilities are closed to NCTD therapy dog visits, but we are scheduling training classes, virtual workshops, and in-person meet-and-greets as we prepare to resume visits this spring. As always, we will continue to focus on the safety of our clients and volunteers.

NCTD requests that all volunteers and participants in NCTD sponsored activities who are medically able receive a COVID vaccine prior to taking part in any therapy team visit, indoor class, open floor, evaluation or other event. The current CDC guidelines for masking and social distancing should be followed by attendees at all NCTD events being held indoors or outdoors.

The 21st Annual Paws in the Park dog walk and festival is a signature special event of the Montgomery County Humane Society, held in partnership with the City. One of the largest dog walks in the DC area, it raises funds to help homeless and abandoned animals throughout Montgomery County.

The fun-filled afternoon includes a 1-mile walk for dogs and people, pet games, prizes, demos, rescue groups, a “flealess” market with pet-friendly vendors, food, music and more.

Fun for the whole family, Paws in the Park helps hundreds of animals awaiting their forever homes. Proceeds support MCHS’s life-saving programs that protect and care for unwanted, abandoned and abused animals – everything from dogs, cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs, to reptiles, birds and others. Contributions make a difference in the animals’ lives as well as assist the people who love them. Programs include veterinary care, off-site adoption events, animal rescue, pet retention and pet bereavement workshops, foster homes, humane education, behavior advice, affordable spay/neuter, and a network of approximately 200 partnering rescue groups.
