Here at the Baltimore Humane Society, we are committed to ending euthanasia due to overpopulation. Our no-kill shelter also gives medical care and works to save the lives of all homeless animals who come to us, even those needing major medical care
Our primary mission is assisting the caretakers of feral (wild) cat colonies who want to do TNR. That means they trap the cats, have them tested for FELV and FIV, vaccinated and altered.

The Maryland SPCA’s mission is to improve the lives of pets and people in the community. There is never a time limit for how long an animal can remain in our care. We receive no operating funds from the ASPCA. We rely on donations to continue our work.
With a special emphasis on caring for raptors (birds of prey). The Center is the Olympic Peninsula’s foremost wildlife rehabilitation and protection organization and is fully licensed and equipped to care for the needs of any endangered animal. The Center also specializes in promoting conservation of local habitat and wildlife by presenting environmental education programs and public outreach events using wild raptors.
Our mission is to match pigs (and other pumpkin-eating animals) with un-carved, non-inked/non-painted pumpkins to prevent them from being thrown in the landfill. They are excellent feed and a wonderful treat to the animals on the farms and sanctuaries. They also make great compost. Thanksgiving comes up and we start moving to the next holiday but often our pumpkins are in perfectly fine shape, and its a waste to throw them out when they are still useful.
