Whether it’s the economy or just some unknown cyclical trend, pet adoptions are up at the Montgomery County Animal Shelter.
There were 230 adoptions last month, compared with 206 in December 2009.
“Right now, I have 21 applications assigned to adoption interviewers,” said Meg Sydnor, an adoption coordinator at the shelter at 14645 Rothgeb Drive in Rockville.
Shelter officials say they cannot explain why more Montgomery County residents want to bring pets into their homes.
