  • 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).
