Assistance programs

We provide pet food assistance to families struggling to survive economically. This keeps pets in the loving homes where they belong.

Humane education

The MD SPCA teaches children compassion toward animals through innovative education programs.

Neighborhood Vet Care

Our veterinary clinic provides exams, vaccinations, treatment for illness, diagnostics, surgery, dental cleanings, and many other services. All proceeds benefit animals at the MD SPCA.

Spay/Neuter Services

We provide spay/neuter surgery for cats and dogs. This service prevents animals from reproducing and supports health and wellbeing.
