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 Diego 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've been described as a "big love bug." However, I'm looking for a home where I can be king of the castle where I don't have to share my space with other pups or kitties. If you're looking for a grade a cuddler, who's cute to boot, please come visit me at the Maryland SPCA! And, I was also May's Kaycee pet pick, which mean that my adoption fee has been waived thanks to a generous donor.


Hi! My name is Esmerelda, and like a fine wine I have only get better with age. I have been hanging out with a foster family for the past few months because I have a hyperthyroid condition which was difficult to regulate. Thank GOODNESS we finally found the right prescription and dosage to get it under control. I will need my medication twice daily for the rest of my life, but don't get discouraged--I'll definitely make it worth your while in snuggles. I would love to sit in your lap and be petted for hours on end, I'm a real love-bug. In my foster home, I was exposed to 2x male cats and I didn't like them AT ALL- so I might do best in a home with no other cats. Come meet me at the Maryland SPCA!
