BerettaThe Maryland SPCA is an independent, nonprofit organization that works to improve the lives of pets and people in Maryland. The Maryland SPCA receives no operating support from the government or other animal welfare groups including the ASPCA. The Maryland SPCA is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of animals in Baltimore and the surrounding area. In addition to adoption and lost pet services, we offer a multitude of programs and services for the community and for residents who already own a pet.

In 2016, with support from the March for the Animals, we were able to help approximately 15,000 pets in our community! What we do each year with your support:

  • 3,000+ Adoptions and Rescues
  • 7,000 Spay/Neuter Surgeries
  • 4,000+ Wellness Clinic Patients
  • 1,400+ Transports from Other Shelters
  • 5,300+ Students Reached Through School and Other Outreach Programs
  • 18.4 tons of Food Provided to Needy Pet Owners and Hungry Animals in our Community
  • 600+ Public-Owned Pets Assisted by Behavior Programs
  • 1,700+ pets helped through our Foster Program
