There are many wonderful animals in this world who are not so fortunate to have a place to call home. You will find these trusting pets in shelters, state operated 'pounds', with rescue groups and even caring vets will house them. Some of them have come from homes where they are no longer wanted....some have never known what it is like to be loved. The goal of this page is to bring hope to some of Maryland's deserving animals.
