The 21 participating shelters are:

Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne’s County, Anne Arundel County Animal Care & Control, Baltimore County Animal Services, Baltimore Humane Society, BARCS, Caroline County Humane Society, Cecil County Animal Services, City of College Park Animal Control, Frederick County Division of Animal Control & Adoptions, Howard County Animal Control & Adoption Center, Humane Society of Carroll County, Humane Society of Harford County, Humane Society of Washington County, Linda L. Kelley Animal Shelter, Maryland SPCA, Montgomery County Animal Services & Adoption Center, Prince George’s County Animal Services Division, Talbot Humane, The Animal Care Shelter for Kent County, Tri-County Animal Shelter and Wicomico County Humane Society.

The Cat Hospital At Towson, presenting sponsor of the Maryland 2,000, will provide a certificate for a free cat wellness exam to any adopter who takes home a cat or kitten in July from Baltimore County Animal Services, Baltimore Humane Society, BARCS or the Maryland SPCA.
