If you are looking for a new dog, cat, puppy or kitten to add to your family, come to our adoption center. Not only will you find a friend for life, you will be helping a needy or unwanted animal looking for a new home.
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.
Lucky 7 Dogs and Cats
This program is made possible with leadership support from Ruth Prettyman Dumont, who gave the gift in memory of Toto, a Lucky 7 dog.

Hi! I'm Venus and I'm a super friendly cat looking for my forever pal. I have a medical condition called IBD that makes my tummy ache sometimes so I'm on a special diet and anti-acid. I hope to find the right person who will give me a comfy place to sleep and love whenever i'm not feeling up to purr. Most of the time I feel just fine, trust me my foster mom Tamsen will tell you all about it!
"Venus: Cute as a button! Her face and small frame give her a much younger look, it's almost like having a kitten in the house especially with the amount of meows. She's not a huge fan of playing with toys but she'll snuggle with a play mouse for the night. Being a lap kitty (or any body part kitty), she will want to be near you and sleep on you or next to you for a few hours. Her usual spots to observe the house are your computer chair, the top of the couch, on the back of your chair, directly on your arm that you're using or on the back of your friend. She'll come in and sleep with you if you let her but she wants her alone time too. Not a huge fan of being picked up, she'd rather rub up against your feet and say hi." -Foster Mom, Tamsen
Venus is the staff pick for February!
If you are interested in meeting Venus come visit her at the Maryland SPCA today!

Hello everyone! Call me Thom. The folks here called me a "Swinging Tap Dancer"! If you're looking for an energetic, fun loving, curious dog then I'm the dog for you. You should know that I will be happiest in an active household that enjoys daily exercise. I LOVE to play with toys- tug and fetch are two of my favorite games. I'm really enjoying my daily training with the MDSPCA trainers and I really wanna attend Obedience classes with my new family. Please come hang out with me at the Maryland SPCA adoption center and let's go home together today? Oh, I almost forgot! Since I've been here a while they have waived my adoption fee!
