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.

Staff Pick - CAT: Dino

Hi! I'm Dino and I have waited a really long time for my forever home, I hope it finds me soon. I am a fun cat, I swear! I love to cuddle, play and entertain. I am medium energy so I spend half of my time lounging and the other half racing around the house. My foster parents all loved me and said I was a great cat. My only issue, and I wouldn't call it that, is that I have FIC which is a lower urinary tract condition which sometimes causes crystals so I need to be on a special diet. I have been doing really well and using my big boy litterbox but it will be important that I get the right food. A really kind person donated towards my adoption fee so I am free! Come see me at the Maryland SPCA today!

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!

Volunteer Picks: Polo

Polo: Hi there! My name is Polo and I am a "Swinging Tap Dancer" kind of pup. Are you looking for a fun-loving dog who is comfortable going on long walks but who can also hang out around the house? Do you want a dog with energy, but who won't wear you out? Then I'm your dog. I am a true gentleman and will wiggle my whole body for scratches and petting, and maybe even offer you my shoulders for a good scratch. If you can't tell cuddling is one of my favorite activities and I just love to hang out with everyone who visits me. I would be a good fit for a home who enjoys exploring the neighborhood and playing fetch but who is also super interested in romantic nights on the couch with a good rom-com. If that all sounds good please come visit me at the Maryland SPCA- I'll be waiting to hear from you!

Volunteer Picks: Marilyn

Marilyn: Secret Admirer: When it comes to relationships, I'm very level-headed. I don't leap in paws first, if you know what I mean. But give me a little time, and then I'll shower you with purrs, head-butts, and plenty of lap time. In the meantime, you may not see a lot of me but I'll be thinking a lot of you! A nice person donated my adoption fee so I am free!
