The Baltimore Humane Society was founded to protect our region’s pets and to address and prevent their suffering as a “no-kill” shelter.
BHS continues the legacy of Mrs. Elsie Seeger Barton by caring for thousands of wonderful animals every year. We continue to operate a low-cost, subsidized Spay, Neuter & Vaccine Clinic, which assists in helping to control the epidemic of pet overpopulation and serve low-income pet owners with quality pet care and vaccinations. In addition, our Baltimore Humane Society Memorial Park, on the grounds of BHS, provides a final resting place for many beloved pets and offers burial, funeral, and cremation services, free pet bereavement services and special memorial events. Three hundred and forty three acres of our land still serves as a protected wildlife sanctuary, alive with deer, fox, several species of birds, and numerous other types of local wildlife.
