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.

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.

Adopt Griffin, a  at Maryland SPCA


Medium , Black  / None , Female , 3 Years 3 Months 3 Weeks (approx)

Sidekick: Like all sidekicks, I'm just plain good company. I like attention, and I also like my solitude. I don't go looking for trouble but I'm no scaredy-cat, either. If you are looking for a steady companion to travel with you on the road of life, look no further.

Volunteer Pet Picks of the Week

These pets have been specially selected by our wonderful team of over 1,000 volunteers. Click on their photos to read why we love them!

Adopt Misty, a  at Maryland SPCA


Large , Blue Brindle  / White , Female , 5 Years 6 Months 1 Week (approx)

Hi! My name is Misty and I am a "Swinging Tap Dancer". I LOVE to cuddle, in fact it's my favorite hobby. I spent some time in foster and while I was there I took over their couch and enjoyed watching tv [I love those rom-coms!] I am already housebroken and enjoy long leisurely walks. I've mastered sit and would love to learn more with my new people. Please come visit me at the Maryland SPCA- I'll be waiting to hear from you! The Volunteers voted Misty their favorite pooch this week. Here's what they said about her: "She's so sweet, and I love how calm she is when I go into her kennel. She's always happy to see you, and just wants to cuddle and give you kisses, but she knows that jumping and getting hyper isn't the best way to get attention." and "This girl has been through so much and she deserves a good forever home this time around. She is super gentle, smart, and sweet, and if you ever go into her space, all she wants to do is be close to you and give you kisses."
