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.

Lucky 7 Dogs and Cats

Lucky 7 Dogs and Cats Program at Maryland SPCA

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 Fund Dogs

Our generous Kaycee Fund donor has committed to covering the adoption fee for one special dog each month.

Adopt Scout, a  at Maryland SPCA


Large, Black / White, Male, 11 Years 1 Month 3 Weeks (approx)

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 Fund Cats

A generous donor has enabled us to establish the Pippi Fund to cover the adoption fee for one special cat each month.

Adopt Venus, a  at Maryland SPCA


Medium, Orange Tabby / None, Female, 6 Years 11 Months 3 Weeks (approx)

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 kthomas@mdspca.org.

Venus is our September Pippi cat, which means her adoption fee has been waived thanks to a generous donor!

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 Casper, a  at Maryland SPCA


Large , White  / Brown , Male , 4 Years 8 Months 2 Weeks (approx)

Hi, I'm Casper and I am a "Break Dancer"! I'm looking for an active owner who can give me the exercise (and attention!) I need. I love to run, jump, play, and fetch and would do all of those things all day if I could! I already know sit but I've been told I'm a pretty smart cookie and would love to learn more with my new person. Is that you? Please contact the Maryland SPCA if you are interested. Oh and P.S.- my adoption fee was paid for by a generous donor!
