Our adoption staff strives to help you find the perfect match. Each year we adopt out more than 3,500 animals to new homes, and new animals enter our adoption program daily. Our adoption center is clean, cheery and our staff is attentive and eager to help you find the right animal to adopt.

Lucky 7 Dogs and Cats

Lucky 7 Dogs and Cats Program at Maryland SPCA

This program is supported in memory of Felix, a senior pet who lived 22 years with his owner and buddy, Robert Leininger.

Kaycee Fund Dogs

Our generous Kaycee Fund donor has committed to covering the adoption fee for one special dog each month.

Kaycee Dog Pick: Bluetooth! 

"Hey friends, my name is Bluetooth. I’m a 5-year-old Pitty girl and I've been waiting for my forever home for a very long time. I came to the Maryland SPCA from another shelter back on December 13th. I’ve been sitting, waiting and wishing for a home for well over a month. I love to play and sniff around outside so it would be great if my new family would take me on hikes and explore! I'm the perfect in-between age - no more of those silly puppy antics but still enough zest to have a ton of fun! If you are interested in meeting me, I’m relaxing in Foster Care until my family comes along. Please email foster@mdspca.org to learn more about me!" 

 
Bluetooth is our February Kaycee dog, which means that her adoption fee has been waived thanks to a generous donor!

Pippi Fund Cats

A generous donor has enabled us to establish the Pippi Fund to cover the adoption fee for one special cat each month.

Silvia, our February Pippi cat pick, has been adopted! Please check back next month!

Staff Picks

To help more pets find homes, each month Maryland SPCA staff members will select and highlight a special dog or cat in our adoption center as the Staff Pick of the Month.

Staff Pick - CAT: Dino

Hi! I'm Dino and I have waited a really long time for my forever home, I hope it finds me soon. I am a fun cat, I swear! I love to cuddle, play and entertain. I am medium energy so I spend half of my time lounging and the other half racing around the house. My foster parents all loved me and said I was a great cat. My only issue, and I wouldn't call it that, is that I have FIC which is a lower urinary tract condition which sometimes causes crystals so I need to be on a special diet. I have been doing really well and using my big boy litterbox but it will be important that I get the right food. A really kind person donated towards my adoption fee so I am free! Come see me at the Maryland SPCA today!
