Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

GROWL covers the state of Maryland and we do all of our adoption appointments in person to make sure the animal is placed in the correct home.

About Our Rescue Group:

GROWL is a all breed rescue that specializes in rescuing the ones left behind. We rescue many special needs, seniors and ones that are not chosen by rescue or for adoption. We cover many states and strive to match the right home with the right buddy!

Come Meet our Pets:

Animals for adoption through GROWL are all in foster care so the appointments must be made with the foster families. We depend on these as we do not have a shelter.

Our Adoption Process:

We require a completed application, home visit, references and adoption contract.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
