Maryland SPCA

“Feel The Warmth of a Cold Nose”

For 150 years, the Maryland SPCA has been a leader in animal welfare, working toward a future where every cat and dog thrives in our community.


Our humane education programs empower people of all ages to treat animals with compassion and respect. We provide animal behavior training, literacy, and humane education programs to school children, teach first responders and other professionals to safely engage animals, and support seniors’ mental health and well-being.


We work to keep pets healthy and in homes by providing quality veterinary care in our shelter and in the community. Each animal in our shelter is vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and receives medical treatment as needed to ensure pets have healthy, happy lives. Our Wellness Center offers affordable veterinary care to members of our community.


We provide a safety net to thousands of pets in need, offering first-class adoption, rehoming, and fostering services. Our transport team works to alleviate overcrowding in other shelters, saving pets throughout the state.
