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.

Kaycee Dog Pick: Pebbles! 

“Hi friends, my name is Pebbles. I'm a 6-year-old Pit Bull mix who came to the Maryland SPCA as a stray back in December. A kind police officer found and brought me to the safety of the Maryland SPCA. Once I arrived, our vet team took a look at my teeth and noticed that I had some serious dental issues that needed to be attended to. After a dental procedure here at the shelter, I'm on the road to recovery! As an added bonus, thanks to a very generous donor, I have been chosen as this month's Kaycee Pet meaning my adoption fee has been waived! If you are interested in meeting me, please come to the Maryland SPCA!” 

Pebbles is our January Kaycee dog, which means that his adoption fee has been waived thanks to a generous donor!

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.

Pippi Cat Pick for this month has been adopted! Please check back next 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.

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!

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!

Volunteer Picks: Ziva, Dino and Kane

Ziva: Ziva is a 'sidekick' and the 'volunteer pet pick.' One volunteer wrote: "despite her age, she looks and acts like a kitten, and at 15 she deserves a loving home in her twilight years." Another called her "such a sweet cat." Come see why they love her!

 

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.
