Your participation in the Maryland SPCA Festival for the Animals, formerly the March for the Animals, helps the Maryland SPCA care for almost 15,000 homeless pets each year. As the MD SPCA’s largest fundraiser, the festival is an annual walk-a-thon, and new this year will be a free, outdoor music concert featuring local, regional and national music acts—all taking place at Port Covington. For more than 22 years, this spring event has been a staple on the calendars of committed animal lovers throughout Maryland.
Every step that’s taken and every dollar that’s raised helps us rescue, shelter and aid the homeless pets in our community. This is a critical event for the Maryland SPCA—funding from MD SPCA Festival for the Animals supports nearly 10% of the MD SPCA’s annual budget.
