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 Jax and I am a "Swinging Tap Dancer." Are you looking for a fun-loving dog who is comfortable going on long walks and then is read to crash on the couch? Do you want a dog with energy, but who won't wear you out? Then look no farther because I'm your pup. I'm over all of my puppy nonsense but I still have a playful zest and a working brain ready to learn. If you've been wanting to get more exercise and there's an empty place in you home please come visit me at the Maryland SPCA—I'll be waiting to hear from you!

Hi, my name is Kindred and I'm a 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.


Hi, my name is Prince of Baltimore, Jax. I'm looking for a furever home to live. I'm currently residing at a bed & breakfast in North West Baltimore, but they are starting to make me work for my keep and this Prince is just too regal for that. I do like the company here, however. There are a bunch of rad cats and a crazy puppy who likes to drag me around. Don't worry though I get her right back with a quick smack on the head, and then we get to wrestling. Currently looking for a permanent palace to rest my paws, sunbathe in tall windows and catnap on floofy floor mats. New residence must have other cats and friendly dogs are cool, too. To meet this Prince please contact the Maryland SPCA's foster department at foster@mdspca.org.
