Missy's fosterer writes...

Prepare to have Missy steal your heart! She is very affectionate, obedient, and adorable. She especially enjoys chasing thrown tennis balls, and will beg you to play ball all day long. She absolutely must have a fenced yard in which to run off all that energy in short bursts. Missy will want to sleep with you, either in your bed, or on her bed at the foot of yours. Ideally, she would love to have another dog to play with, best if her size or larger. Not suitable to be left alone all day or in a crate—she needs companionship and affection, and will kiss you endlessly in reward. Missy has completed four surgeries to repair her “cherry eyes”, and because one of the third eyelids has been removed, she will likely need daily eye drops later on to prevent dry eye complications. If you and your dog want a 24/7 companion, and you have a fenced yard, Missy could be your girl.

Missy is expecting to attend the next adoption show,
October 22nd at the Bowie PetSmart,
although there's always a possibility that plans will need to change at the last minute.

animals are in foster homes. We are unable to place our animals outside

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.
