Our Adoption Process...
For information on hours, fees, and adoption requirements, please visit our ADOPTION page. We do not have past history on STRAY pets - we do not know if they are good with children, good with other pets, etc. All pets are spayed/neutered before leaving.
Adoption is first-come, first-served. Animals on this list may already be adopted and waiting out their stray period. Please call (410) 222-8900 to check on availability. We will not hold pets based on phone calls. All pets are spayed and neutered before leaving Animal Control. Ages and breeds are based on the evaluation of kennel vet techs.

to help you keep track of which pets you've inquired about, and which shelters and rescues you've emailed.
NOTE: Some shelters have physical locations you can visit; some of these shelters may only have pets for a limited time, so please do not wait for a reply—just go visit the shelter!
Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply. You can find information about the shelter or rescue group caring for this pet, and their adoption procedures,
on the pet's details page on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
