Animal Control grapples with rising number of owners giving up their dogs

February 9, 2024

In recent months, Frederick County Animal Control has seen many more owners giving up their dogs, forcing the agency to schedule those surrenders weeks in advance. As of Friday, for almost every weekday in February — when the shelter is open — there are appointments for owners to come in and drop off their animals. That includes 10 dogs, seven guinea pigs and about 30 cats, according to Animal Control Director David Luckenbaugh.
