Montgomery County Animal Services & Adoption Center

As an open-admission shelter, #MCASAC is committed to serving and saving any Montgomery County animal in need-- so it should come as no surprise that our commitment extends to PIGS! 🐷
We recently had quite a few Potbelly mixes come into our facility (did you know we have a barn on the Adoption Center property??) ranging in age from newborn to 1 year. Just like so many other pets, pigs are smart, unique animals with their own funny and independent personalities!

While all of these pigs have been placed in homes over the last 24 hours, it's only a matter of time before our barn has more pigs looking for forever families! If you have room on your property (and heart!) for a companion-pig, PLEASE consider joining our foster network! While we have many wonderful foster families already in our program, pig/farm/livestock foster homes are far and few between. To learn how to join our foster team, please visit our website below! https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/animalservices/volunteer/foster.html

The virus that causes COVID-19 can spread from a person before they have symptoms. Take action to slow the spread by wearing a cloth face covering in public spaces, keeping at least 6 feet of physical distance, and frequently washing your hands.
A cloth face covering can be made from items around your home, such as a scarf or cloth napkin. Make sure the covering reaches above your nose and below your chin.

We saw a ring necked snake on Sunday. Fully grown they are tiny.

Warming temperatures mean that snakes are going to be out and about. No need to be afraid, just be aware and learn how to identify them. Snakes are an important part of our ecosystem and all snakes in Maryland are protected.

There are 27 species and subspecies of snakes in Maryland. Only two are venomous - the timber rattlesnake and the copperhead.

We have a great photo guide to help you identify the snakes you may see while you're out exploring. Check it out!

Rocklands Farm Winery

Hey Rocklanders — Unfortunately we have a bit of bad news we need to share...

Although this past weekend felt like a taste of the summer ahead, the weekend prior saw overnight temperatures below freezing. Despite all our efforts to prevent frost in the vineyard (which included @theregularmike & team working overnight), our vines sadly fell victim to a pretty severe frost and we lost the majority of our fruit set (grapes) for the year. We’re taking the loss in stride and will persevere to make the best of this difficult situation! We want to be transparent with you as we work on our plan for the 2020 vintage. We're so grateful for your continued support and we are truly looking forward to the day you can enjoy wine on the farm again. We'll continue to keep you updated as things progress. ❤️🍷 @ Rocklands Farm Winery

C&O Canal Trust

If you support ongoing efforts to resurface the C&O Canal towpath, now is your chance to make your voice heard!

To date, 42 miles from Edwards Ferry to Lock 38/Shepherdstown Bridge have been completed. A further 14 miles from Swains Lock to Edwards Ferry will be resurfaced in 2020, for a total of 56 miles of smooth, safe, continuous surface -- one with no roots, rocks, or ruts, and with good drainage during high water events.

Please sign our petition asking the State of Maryland to continue funding this important project that will improve 12 more miles in 2021. The deadline to sign is midnight on May 19.

❤️MEET CAPPY❤️ Cappy is arguably our most recognizable and requested animal. He is a 3 year-old mini pig that has an attitude full of sass and a belly full of treats! His favorite past-times include belly rubs (using a back scratcher), following Betsy around, and spinning in circles for saltines at local nursing homes. Cappy can’t wait to see you all again!
