Have your pet vaccinated at a low-cost rabies clinic in your community. Eight clinics will be held throughout the County from May 2 until June 3. No appointment necessary! Pet owners are reminded to bring their animals' previous rabies certificate, and to have dogs on a leash and cats in an appropriate carrier. For more information, call 410-887-PAWS (7297).
Attention Baltimore County Animal Shelter volunteers! You can become a pet foster care provider if you live in Baltimore County and have attended new volunteer orientation. In order to foster a dog, you must complete a dog socialization class as well. Fostering will be for animals that are in need of a home environment and socialization. If you are interested and eligible to become a foster care provider, complete and return the application (PDF).
Animal Services is responsible for enforcing the laws that protect animals, sheltering and returning stray pets to their owners and promoting responsible pet ownership.
