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.

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.

Hi, my name is Othello and I'm a 3-year-old neutered male, black and white domestic short hair cat. I first graced the Maryland SPCA with my presence after being transported from another local shelter back in the middle of May. I'm what you would consider a 'Personal Assistant' meaning, I like to help out with your daily tasks. Such tasks include sitting on the paper while you are trying to read, pressing the keys for you on the computer or chasing the broom while you're sweeping! While I was here at the Maryland SPCA getting checked-out by the exam team, I tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV for short). FIV is a virus that impairs my immune system. Like most FIV kitties, I can live a long, healthy life, I just might need a few extra vet check-ups if I'm feeling under the weather. I have been chosen as this month's Pippi Pet which means my adoption fee has been waived! If you are interested in meeting me, I will be waiting to hear from you at the Maryland SPCA.

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.

The staff picks for June have been adopted. Please check back next month. 

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!

Peaches is a Party Animal! She came in with her best buddy Piewackett and they need to go home together. Here is what one volunteer wrote about the pair: "Peaches is the most loving cat, putting her paws out or reaching up to be petted and cuddled. Piewackett also loves to be petted, and both love to play with toys. They both want lots of attention from people and are not at all shy. Plus Peaches has the cutest face imaginable." Both girls are Lucky 7 kitties so their adoption fee is waived!
