The Maryland SPCA uses force-free training methods. That means training without pain, intimidation, threats, force, or coercion.
Behavior & Training
Behavior and training experts assess every pet admitted to our shelter. We make sure the pet is safe to have around people and other pets. Experts also identify behavior challenges and create customized training plans. Finally, we develop personality profiles so adopters can find the right match.
No Time Limits
There’s no time limit on how long a pet can stay with us. Last year, our team of dedicated, compassionate staff and volunteers provided care and enrichment for 3,420 dogs and cats until they found their forever homes.
Help us give a second chance to the pets in our care.
