Wine & Wag Scheduled for Friday, July 21st Cancelled Due to Dangerously Hot Temperatures!

With a heat advisory in effect in our area today and meteorologists calling for dangerously hot temperatures through the weekend, the Maryland SPCA is cancelling our Wine & Wag scheduled for Friday, July 21st.

Over the past eight years, the Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance’s (BAWA) annual Baltimore 500: A Race to Save Lives adoption event has found homes for almost 6,000 cats and kittens in the Baltimore area during the month of June. This year, BAWA members Baltimore Humane Society, Baltimore County Animal Services, BARCS and the Maryland SPCA have taken their efforts statewide by inviting other shelters to participate in the first-ever Maryland 2,000 Saving Lives Across Maryland adoption event. 

Beginning July 1st through July 31st the Maryland SPCA along with the following animal shelters in Maryland will be waiving adoption fees for felines with the collective goal of finding homes for at least 2,000 unwanted cats and kittens across the state: Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne’s County, Anne Arundel County Animal Control, Baltimore County Animal Services, Baltimore Humane Society, BARCS, Caroline County Humane Society, Cecil County Animal Services, City of College Park Animal Control, Frederick County Div. of Animal Control & Pet Adoption, Howard County Animal Control & Adoption Center, Humane Society of Carroll County, Humane Society of Harford County, Humane Society of Kent County, Humane Society of Washington County, Prince George's County Animal Services Division, Talbot Humane Society, and Tri County Animal Shelter.

Cats of all ages and personalities will be available for adoption, including kittens. 

Regular adoption procedures still apply. Click here to see pets available for adoption at the Maryland SPCA.

As the sponsor for the previous Baltimore 500 events, Cat Hospital At Towson (CHAT) will provide swag bags and a free cat exam certificate for adopters who adopt from one of the four BAWA shelters.
