Meet Bear, MDSPCA’s Pet of the Week–Plus, a Celebration


Please say hello to…

Bear, 2 years old, 57 lbs., neutered male, Hound/Rottweiler

 Hi hi hi! I’m a fun, energetic, and friendly fella looking for new home before the holidays. I should probably attend obedience training since I’m kinda goofy at the moment. So if you need an active companion to bring a little excitement to your home, come visit me at the Maryland SPCA adoption center today.

Also, some good news: Last weekend, our 500th pet was adopted from Project Adopt at White Marsh Mall. Project Adopt is the Maryland SPCA’s satellite adoption center. In addition to this milestone, we’re coming up on our one-year-anniversary since Project Adopt opened.

To celebrate this milestone and to celebrate our up-coming one-year-anniversary, we are honoring adopters with a special reception on Saturday, November 22nd.

The 1st adopters and their cat Lucy will be attending and will be presented a new collar with a Pet ID tag that says “I was the 1st adoption at Project Adopt.” The 500th adopters and their kitten, Jaimie Lynn, will be attending and will be presented with a new collar that says “I was the 500th adoption at Project Adopt.”

All other adopters from Project Adopt have been invited to attend (without pets) and will be thanked during ceremony. Refreshments will be served immediately following.

To continue to celebrate these two milestones, the MD SPCA will be waiving adoption fees for cats and reducing adoption fees for kittens at Project Adopt on Friday, November 21, Saturday, November 22, and Sunday November 23.

When: Saturday, November 22 at 10 a.m.

Where: White Marsh Mall, Upper Level next to JC Penney. (8200 Perry Hall Blvd. Nottingham, MD)


Baltimore Humane Society’s Pets of the Week


Pleasure to meet you! My name is Sasha! I’m a Dutch Shepherd-Plott Hound mix looking for a home to call my own. I think I’m still a puppy full of energy, but I’m actually a 2 1/2 year old girl. I love to play! Toys are fun, but I would rather play with people and other dogs! I’m a big social butterfly who loves belly rubs.  If you let me be your forever friend you’re in for good, happy times ahead.
