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.

Hi, my name is Bohby and I am a "Swinging Tap Dancer". Looking for a fun-loving dog who is comfortable going on long walks or just lying around the house? Want a dog with energy, but who won't wear you out? Then I'm your dog. I'm a cuddle bug at heart and haven't met a stranger yet. I've lived with kids and cats [although sometimes I did chase the furry little guys] and have enjoyed playgroup with other dogs here at the shelter. Since I can be pretty anxious when left alone I need to go to a home with another dog to keep me company [I did great with my foster pup friend]. If you're looking for a fun and outgoing dude to keep you company please come visit me at the Maryland SPCA- I'll be waiting to hear from you!

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!

Hi, my name is Alexis and I'm a "Break Dancer" and the "Volunteer Pet Pick." They love that I'm sweet and snuggly and love climbing into your lap. I know I'm not so small anymore but sometimes I still act like a puppy. Unlike a puppy I've got a mind ready to learn and a stomach that loves treats. I got to spend some time in foster and it was great! Per my foster parent- "Beautiful, loving, slobbery girl who adores people and is a great companion. Loves attention and is crate trained." I would prefer to be the only pup in the home but I'm pretty excellent at snuggling so you'll never want another. If you have a little patience, a lot of love, and are looking for a new fitness friend, come visit me at the Maryland SPCA!
