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

Lucky 7 Dogs and Cats Program at Maryland SPCA

This program is supported in memory of Felix, a senior pet who lived 22 years with his owner and buddy, Robert Leininger.

Kaycee Fund Dogs

Our generous Kaycee Fund donor has committed to covering the adoption fee for one special dog each month.

Pippi Fund Cats

A generous donor has enabled us to establish the Pippi Fund to cover the adoption fee for one special cat each month.

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 Madeleine and I'm the Volunteer Pet Pick! Volunteers come snuggle me all day long. When they stop giving me back scratches or pets, I turn to look at them like 'why did you stop?' They all say that I'm sweet and friendly and great on leash. I keep getting passed over by adopters because I'm a little on the older side, and I sometimes have some knee pain due to old tears in some of the ligaments in my legs. While I'm happy and otherwise healthy, I'm looking for a family who will continue to take me to the vet regularly to assess the progress of my condition. I was selected as the Kaycee pet this month, which means my adoption fee has already been paid by a very generous donor. Please give me a second chance for love. Visit me at the MD SPCA.

Hi, my name is Koko Liberty and I'm a cat who does everything in a big way. I not only like to be in the middle of things - I like to lead the parade. I'm an adventurous cat, but I'll still make plenty of time to show you my affectionate side. I'm the demonstrative type, you might say. Want a cat who's brimming with confidence? That's me. I'm FIV+ but I'm happy and healthy and ready for my new home!
