Seniors & Pets

Companion animals, especially dogs and cats, help to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and ease loneliness. Going for a daily walk is a great form of light exercise improving cardiovascular health. The MD SPCA works with the Baltimore County Department of Aging, senior living facilities, and other organizations to provide programing to fulfill everyone’s mental health and wellbeing needs. Programming includes therapy pet ambassador visits, educational programs tailored to the organization’s request. For more information, please contact our community relations team.

Kibble Connection

COVID-19 Update: The Maryland SPCA is currently providing direct pet food assistance to help people keep their dogs and cats.  If you need assistance, please fill out this request form.

In communities across Maryland, far too many people struggle to make ends meet. Many are pet owners who must decide between spending their last $10 on food for themselves or their pets. Kibble Connection was created to address this issue. The Maryland SPCA collects donations of pet food and supplies from the public to distribute to under-served communities. Kibble Connection partners include Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland, Charm City Companions, and B-More Dog, whose clients and their pets receive meals to maintain proper nutrition. For more information, please contact our community relations team.
