It is the vision of the Baltimore County Department of Health to have healthy people living, working and playing in Baltimore County. We aim to promote health and prevent disease by educating communities, advocating for healthy lifestyles, linking people to resources and treating various health conditions. As a service-oriented agency, we encourage you to use this valuable tool to access our services, get important health information, or to contact us.  

Health Highlights

  • Fourth of July Animal Adoption Special - From July 1 to 5, animal adoption fees will be reduced by 50 percent. The shelter is open normal hours during this time. So, come get a new dog for $25 or a cat or kitten for $20.

  • If you are looking for access to water and bathrooms in a cool environment, then Baltimore County has several "cooling centers" available where you can get relief from the heat.

  • Public Notification - View information about water contact alerts and water quality advisories.  

  • Got unwanted or expired medications? Safely dispose of them at a drug drop box located at any Baltimore County police precinct.
