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

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.

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.

Hi! My name is Poinsettia. I'm a sweet and cuddly girl, but it takes me a couple of weeks to acclimate to new surroundings. Once settled in though, I'll come out from under the bed and happily lay with you on the bed. I will also give you an awesome high five just for fun, check out the link on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BxIeqYMgQcN/ I would prefer to go to a calm and quiet home without dogs. You do need to know that I was diagnosed with early renal insufficiency, a kidney disease. This means that my kidneys are not working as efficiently as they normally would. Because of this, I will need more frequent vet visits than other cats, and remain on a prescription diet that specifically helps my kidneys function better. But, with all the love that I give, I'm so worth it! And, because I've been selected as April's Pippi pet pick, my adoption fee has been waived thanks to a generous donor.
