  • In an effort to save lives and find homes for abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens, the Baltimore County Animal Shelter is waiving adoption fees for cats and kittens throughout the month of June, as they participate in the Baltimore 500 campaign.

  • Get your dog, cat or ferret vaccinated against rabies for only $8 at a clinic held the second Sunday of each month at the shelter or in the fall at one of nine rabies vaccination clinics between September 10 and October 22.

  • Baltimore County Animal Services is proud to announce a foster program for shelter pets! If you're a Baltimore County resident interested in fostering a cat, dog or both, complete an application (PDF).
