New Maryland SPCA Website is an Early Holiday Gift

“It’s All About Pets and People”

BALTIMORE, MD—The Maryland SPCA has launched a new website, laying the groundwork to serve more pets and people and deepen ties with its community. It’s an early holiday gift for Maryland’s pet lovers.

“After 150 years serving Maryland, we’re just getting started,” said James Peirce, executive director of the MD SPCA. “With our new website, we’ve streamlined our work and provided tools that will make a difference. Life-saving resources, improved adoption searches, access to our experts, and new ways to get involved will help pets and people thrive.”

The MD SPCA’s new resource library provides vital health info, easy training tips, adoption and fostering guides, and much more. Resources are completely free of charge, and new ones will be added regularly. The library is dedicated to former president Celeste Hutton, who spent over 30 years working for animal welfare.

The website also has a new adoption system, making it easy to find the right pet. Potential adopters can search by age, weight, and how well the pet gets along with kids and other animals. Every pet has a detailed profile, and requesting more information is as simple as the press of a button.

“We built this site with our community in mind,” said Andy Beres, director of marketing and communications. “Every day, we’re keeping pets healthy and in homes, providing education and training, and taking care of animals who slip through the cracks. It’s about time we had a website that reflects our passion and professionalism.”

Peirce added, “It’s all about pets and people.”
