Black cats are a fitting addition to any home come Halloween. And more importantly, many of them also make great pets, especially when they’re in need of a family. For two more days, all black and orange cats being housed at the Baltimore County Animal Shelter are available for adoption at no cost.

Meet Layla and Kenny: Baltimore Humane Society’s Pets of the Week



Are you looking for a playful and social girl to join your family? Well then, I think I am the perfect match for you! My name is Layla and I am a bundle of energy who loves to give kisses. I have a happy-go-lucky personality and enjoy playing, spending time with people, and snuggling on couches. In my previous home I lived with children and other dogs! Stop by BHS and meet with me. I hope to see you soon!

Adopt-a-Pet: Baltimore Humane Society’s Pets of the Week



Hello! My name is Pluto. Once I thought I was in a forever home, but I was brought to BHS because my previous guardians moved away and didn’t take me with them. Even so, I am an extremely happy, energetic and fun loving guy who enjoys people. I lived with young children in my previous home. I love them so much, I may try to jump or sit on them (whoops!), but just nicely tell me “no” and I will stop. Although I have a lot of energy, I am still a lap dog at heart. I would love to sit with my new family and watch TV together! My back left leg was broken at some point and because it was not fixed, I hold it up a lot. I may have been abused in a previous home, but we are not entirely sure. In any case, this does NOT slow me down at all. I’ve also been injured by a couple other dogs, so I am understandably “dog selective.” If you have another dog, the staff can just schedule a meet-and-greet between us to see how we get along. Please consider adding me to your family! I truly believe I am a great family dog. Let me show you a lifetime of love that is out of this world!

Adopt a Pet: Baltimore Humane Society’s Pets of the Week


Hi, there! My name is Little Mama. One day I walked into a nice lady’s yard with a big rope tied around my neck. You could tell that I had just given birth, but unfortunately, my puppies weren’t found. Nobody knows much about my past, but I was pretty scared at first; and sometimes I’m still a bit timid with some of the men I come in contact with. However, I continue to relax day by day, and I really enjoy going for long walks and playing with the staff members here in our play room! I chase Little Mama tennis balls, and my favorite toys are squeaky toys. I’m a really active girl and am working on basic manners; I’d love to show off some of my skills, and continue lessons with my new family! No one is quite sure how I might interact with other dogs so if you have another dog, the staff would schedule a meet-and-greet between us to see if we’ll get along. Sometimes I can get a bit over-stimulated, which can cause me to be a little mouthy at times; so if you have children, it would probably be best if they’re eight years or older. I’m a good girl in need of a loving, safe forever home. In return, I’ll give you a lifetime of love and affection! I can’t wait for us to begin our happy ever after!
