Guacamole was transferred to MD SPCA from another shelter at the start of October 2021.

And thank goodness he was–everyone was glad to have him! Two-year-old Guacamole was such a good boy who missed out on some adoptions because of a deformity in his back. Our medical team confirmed that his unique shape did not cause him pain or any medical issues.

This over-looked good boy was featured in social media campaigns, live TV, and took field trips around Baltimore. Shortly after his appearances, he went to a loving home who appreciates his uniqueness as much at the MD SPCA staff and volunteers.
