Montgomery County Humane Society (MCHS) Table

The Montgomery County Humane Society (MCHS) set up a table of literature about their programs: spay/neuter, adoption, care of animals, events, and much more.  Also, there were books of pictures of adoptable animals: cats, dogs, hamsters, turtles, rabbits, birds, and others.
