We count on your donations to continue our life-saving work. As a non-profit organization with no paid staff members, our dedicated volunteers work tirelessly on behalf of local animals. And our efforts are paying off. Our innovative programs have been credited with reducing the number of animals who are euthanized at our local animal control facility. Our dream is that one day, no adoptable animals will be killed in area shelters. We thank you for helping us realize this dream.Visit the donation page to see where your money goes.

Meet the most rootin’ tootin’ dog on this side of the Patapsco! Ruckess is a 2 year old female American Bully. Ruckess is a solid 68 pounds, but she thinks she is a dainty 15 pounds. Ruckess has no clue how strong she is and will need a family dedicated to her training to stop her from jumping or bowling over furniture. Ruckess came to the shelter as a stray. We do not know how she will do in a home with small children or cats. Here at the shelter, she does well with other dogs and respects their boundaries. If you have a residential dog in the home, it is recommended that they meet Ruckess to make sure their playstyles match. Due to Ruckess’ size and strength, she will need a family that is familiar with large breed dogs, owns their home, and have a fenced in yard. To schedule a visit to meet Ruckess, please call the shelter at 410-313-2780 ext. 0.
*Our shelter is now open by appointment only. If you are serious about adopting this pet, please call us at 410-313-2780 ext. 0 to schedule an appointment. Appointments are scheduled during our animal viewing hours:
