Maddie's fosterer writes...

Maddie is a leaner, a licker and a lover. She is happiest lying at your feet, no matter what you’re doing. She enjoys riding in the car, with her head out the window. She chases balls, and brings them back… but doesn’t drop them. (We’re going to work on that!)

She wants very much to play, and can be rather insistent with dogs that aren’t up for a romp. That can lead to playground spats, so her new family will need to keep an eye on her introduction to and interactions with other dogs. She seems to be better with dogs her size or smaller.

Like many border collies, Maddie is very vocal, and has a bark much larger than her size. She uses it when she wants something, and when her people leave her alone. She loves meeting people, a little too enthusiastically at times, but is ready to chill with you once the greetings are over. Come chill with her!

If you are interested in Maddie, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application (http://www.pgspca.org/adopt/online-adoption-application/).

Maddie is expecting to attend the next adoption show, December 17th at the Annapolis PetCo, although there's always a possibility that plans will need to change at the last minute.

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!

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.
