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.

Hi, my name is Harold and I’m what you would consider a Personal Assistant. I love to play, get snuggles, and be with people who love me! I’m a 6-year-old, 17 pound, neutered male domestic short hair. I was brought to the Maryland SPCA with some litter-box concerns and it was determined that I have Feline Idiopathic Cystitis  or "FIC" for short. This means that when I am in stressful situations, I can develop urinary issues or blockages. To keep my healthy and happy, I will need large clean litterboxes, special food for urianry tract health and a calm loving home. If you are looking for a big fluff with lots of purrs and love to give, look no further! I’ll be waiting to hear from you at the Maryland SPCA. 

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 Buster and I am a big and goofy "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'll be sure to always put a smile on your face with my big wiggly bottom and my goofy grin. I'm a slobbery cuddler with the heart of a lap pup [be prepared for me to park my behind on you!] If you've got space on your couch for a goober like me 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 Hank and I am a "Swinging Tap Dancer." That means I'm a middle of the road kind of guy energy-wise. Are you 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. Since I can be a bit shy at first and little kids flailing all around can make me anxious I would do best in a home with older kids or adults who are okay going slow with me and introductions. Once I know you I'm a big goofy clown who is always down to snuggle! If that all sounds good please come visit me at the Maryland SPCA- I'll be waiting to hear from you!
