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

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.

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.

Hi! My name is Garf. I'm working undercover to keep an eye on you and your household. You may not even know you're under surveillance. I can vanish into thin air if anyone or anything interferes with my investigation. If you need a cat who knows how to stay out of trouble and will always keep your secrets, I just might take your case.

Hi! My name is Ghost, and I'm a young pup with a lot of energy and love to give. I'm looking for a home with an active parent or two, and preferably without small children. If you have other pets, I'd love to meet them. However, I'd do best with a pup with the same level of energy as I have so that we can play together. I'll need training and housebreaking to help me learn manners. Even though I'm deaf, I can still learn everything a hearing dog can. If you have a little patience, and a lot of love, come visit me at the Maryland SPCA. Oh, and since I'm the Kaycee pet pick for September, my adoption fee has been waived thanks to a generous donor.
