Saving a dog is saving a life. We have a dog for everyone. Whether you need a smaller, calm, companion dog, or a more high-energy puppy to play with your kids, we will match you with the perfect dog for your family.
Animals are available for adoption at our New York Ave NE Adoption Center, our Oglethorpe St NW Adoption Center, and via a robust network of Foster Homes throughout the area. Search our selection of available dogs using our online tool below.
Before submitted an adoption questionnaire, you will need to meet the dog in person. After submitting your questionnaire, you will then undergo counseling to make sure that you and the dog are a good fit. After you are approved to adopt the animal, you are then cleared to take your dog home! There are some instances in which you won't immediately be able to bring your dog home, such as if he or she needs to be neutered or spayed, or if you require a dog introduction with your current pet.

Please note: Due to Prince George's County's strict breed specific legislation, we are unable to adopt pit bull-type dogs to residents of this county.
