Hi! My name is Penny. I’m a 4 month old terrier mix. I was found wandering stray with my mom and 5 siblings, and ended up at the PG county shelter. PGSPCA rescued me from the shelter along with my brother, Woody.

We’re loving our foster home in Maryland. We’ve got space to run around, other dogs to play with, 3 square meals a day, extra treats for cuteness and a soft bed for naps. We get to play, eat, play, sleep, play, snuggle – oh and did I mention play? You see I’m a very active playful pup. You can see from one of the pictures that I like to garden. My foster mom says I’m not really that helpful but I keep trying.

I need a forever home that has a big, fenced -in yard so I can run and play. I would like a family who is active and likes to take me for walks and jogs. I can’t be left alone for more than four hours since I’m so young and still working on house-training. I am working on being patient in my crate. My foster momma says I listen really well (except when gardening) and I’m smart as a whip. I’m working on my puppy manners – only chewing my chew things and not jumping up. I like it when my humans smile and say “good puppy”. If you think you can give me the home I need I’d love to make you smile too!

If you are interested in Penny, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application (

Penny is expected to attend the next adoption show, September 24 at the Bowie PetSmart.

We are an all volunteer group and do not operate a shelter. All of our animals are in foster homes. We are unable to place our animals outside of the Baltimore/DC area.

About SPCA/Humane Society Of Prince George's County Maryland

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.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our adoptions begin with a visit to one of our adoption events. The adoption coordinator and/or the pet's foster parent will review the applications received. The applicant (if any) whose responses best fit the needs of the particular pet will generally be contacted within a week to schedule a home visit. A vet check and personal reference is also required prior to visiting your home. Our non-refundable adoption fee is $180 for dogs and $75 for cats. The fee covers spay/neuter, core vaccines (distemper and rabies), deworming, microchipping, and the general care of the animals. Per our contract, if you cannot keep your adopted pet for any reason, it must be returned to our program. We will try to find it a new home.
