The Aspin Hill Memorial Park, located at the center of Montgomery County in Aspen Hill, Maryland, represents a key turning point in Montgomery County’s history at the beginning of the 20th century, when agrarian Montgomery County was becoming a suburban community.
The Montgomery County Humane Society received the property as a gift from Mrs. Dorothy Shapiro in 2007. Mrs. Shapiro envisioned the property as a unique center focused on the promotion of animal welfare and humane education to help reduce animal homelessness in the community.
MCHS seeks to carry out Mrs. Shapiro’s vision at the Aspin Hill Memorial Park by conducting a complete rehabilitation of the buildings and grounds. As portions are completed, it will begin offering a range of animal welfare programming and activities to help County residents learn more about their pets and about the mutual benefits of the human-animal bond.
