A well-known nonprofit organization, BARCS takes in almost 12,000 homeless and unwanted animals a year in Baltimore City. BARCS works with local vets to treat and rehabilitate sick and injured animals so they may be adopted in the future. Visitors will often find a large number of super-sweet pit bulls (puppies, young and mature dogs) who are in desperate need of a home. Adoption classes are offered daily, and additional programs and services available include: vaccinations, microchips, pet licenses and training. Due to the high volume of animals serviced, BARCS is always looking for volunteers and donations, in addition to foster homes for moms and their newborn kittens or pups.
A founding member of the Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance, the Maryland SPCA finds homes for more than 3,000 homeless pets every year. With a mission to match up the best animal with each person’s unique home and lifestyle, this adoption center prides itself on providing animals with premium care and a clean, pleasant environment until they are adopted. By visiting its website, visitors may easily search online for their perfect pet. The adoption fee also includes services such as spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, rabies vaccination and de-worming. If needed, Maryland SPCA offers behavior counseling and training courses as a resource for the community to help keep pets in loving homes.

Baltimore, Maryland - Pet Adoption
A $10 pet license fee is still required for Baltimore City Residents. Specials include everything shown in the Champion Adoption Package mentioned above.Protecting, saving and caring for animals in Maryland since 1927, the Baltimore Humane Society is committed to finding homes for more than 1,000 animals every year. To adopt, the first step is to visit the pet, fill out the adoption questionnaire online or in person, and then speak with an adoption counselor for an interview. Because each animal is different, counselors strive to match the needs of each pet with appropriate adopters. Counselors are also trained to help ease the introduction and adjustment of the pet to a new family and home. On average, allow one to two hours to complete the adoption process. You may also schedule a follow-up appointment for a dog-meet-dog introduction for homes with existing pups. This option is not available for resident cats.The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, Inc. (BARCS) is a non-profit organization created in 2004. We work in conjunction with the Baltimore City Bureau of Animal Control. Together our mission is to protect animals from neglect, abuse and exploitation, to advocate their interests and welfare, and to inspire awareness and compassion for all living things. The day-to-day operation of BARCS involves the direct handling of lost, abandoned, unwanted and injured pets and wildlife. We accept all animals. BARCS encourages adoption of its animals by providing a low-cost adoption package, which includes the animal’s neuter/spay surgery and first vaccinations. To ensure that only caring and responsible owners adopt our animals, we also require all new owners to attend an adoption course. During the class, the adopter is issued a city license (city residents only), rabies certificate, & an adoption package that includes helpful information regarding pet ownership. Baltimore Pet Shoppe is committed to saving pets' lives. We work with several shelters and rescue groups to find loving families for homeless pets. We always have cats for adoption at the shop from two West Philadelphia based rescue groups- Project Meow and City Kitties. We also have regular adoption events where a larger number of pets are available including cats and dogs, and sometimes bunnies. The dates of these adoption events will be announced on our home page. If you are thinking of adding a pet to your life, think adoption first!
