Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:The SPCA/Humane Society of Prince George's County, Inc. (PGSPCA) is a local organization, focused primarily on the animal welfare needs of Prince Georges County and the surrounding metropolitan area within a 35 mile radius. We do not run the PG County shelter, although we do rescue animals from the shelter and rehome them through our adoption program.
About Our Rescue Group:The PGSPCA is a nonprofit organization of volunteers dedicated to animal welfare. We are chartered by the State of Maryland, but we receive no state or county funds. Our activities are supported solely by contributions, dues and fundraising events.
We have three main objectives:
• To reduce the number of unwanted litters of dogs and cats through our progressive spay/neuter program – We have altered more than 20,000 animals over the past five years, many of them at no charge;
• To prevent cruelty to animals and all animal suffering through humane education, neglect and cruelty investigations, protective legal action, and an active dog and cat adoption program – We receive about 1,000 calls a month for cruelty investigations, spay and neuter assistance and adoption requests;
• To protect all animals against suffering and abuse through education on legislation affecting the protection of all animals – We regularly educate the public and provide testimony about animal welfare to county and state legislators.
Come Meet our Pets:We don't have a central shelter facility, so the best place to meet our adoptable cats and dogs is at our adoption shows! If you have previously filled out an application, please bring it with you to the show! Please e-mail with any questions. We cannot guarantee that an animal you want to meet will be at the show. Please check the animal's online listing the day before the show and we will do our best to let you know if he/she will be there!
We hold three adoption events each month, on Saturdays from 12 noon to 2 pm.
