Our adoption staff strives to help you find the perfect match. Each year we adopt out more than 3,000 animals to new homes, and new animals enter our adoption program daily. Our adoption center is clean and cheery and our staff is attentive and eager to help you find the right animal to adopt.
This program is made possible with leadership support from Ruth Prettyman Dumont, who gave the gift in memory of Toto, a Lucky 7 dog.
Kaycee Dog Pick: Scout! This is Scout, an 11-year-old Border Collie mix. When he arrived at the Maryland SPCA, Scout had a large mass on his chest that needed to be removed. He was diagnosed with a low-grade, cancerous tumor which means it has a chance of coming back, but Scout could also have quite some time with his new people.
That being said, Scout's a playful, fun-loving boy who has already gotten those silly puppy antics out of the way. Scout will join his new family trained, already knowing how to sit, lay-down and give paw. He has lived with children, dogs and even a cat! (If you have a dog, you can schedule a dog-meet-dog to see how they like each other.) Scout still loves to run and play fetch, but knows a good couch when he sees it.
Scout is our September Kaycee dog, which means that his adoption fee has been waived thanks to a generous donor!
Pippi Cat Pick: Venus! Venus is a six-year-old side-kick. She is hanging out in her foster home, where she was recovering from feline pancreatitis. Her foster mom had these wonderful things to say about her: "Venus is as cute as a button! Her face and small frame give her a much younger look, and with all of her kitty-chatter, it's almost like having a kitten in the house! She is a total lap kitty (or any-body-part kitty, really). Venus is very content when she is on or next to you. She will stay in that spot for hours if you do as well. Her usual spots to observe the world include your computer chair, the top of the couch, on the shoulders and heads of your guests or directly on your arm that you're using (pictured)!" To meet Venus, please email email@example.com.
