The primary goal of MarylandPet.com is to vigorously support the efforts of the state’s animal welfare organizations, animal shelters and numerous pet rescue groups in their mission to save the lives of homeless animals, prevent animal cruelty, and further educate the public about responsible pet care. Pet businesses in Maryland and surrounding states can help to support this worthy cause by purchasing a business listing (full web page) on MarylandPet.com*. Please e-mail if you would like rates and more information about adding your pet business to our website. In turn, website visitors are asked to kindly patronize our online advertisers. MarylandPet.com also supports the program for “Spay and Neuter” license plates in Maryland, Virginia and Delaware, as well as other fundraising efforts.

We graciously invite you to join us in our new endeavor with MarylandPet.com! Remember, every little bit counts! Together we can make Maryland a better, safer, and more humane place for our animal friends!
*MarylandPet.com supports the adoption of companion animals – dogs, cats, birds and small animals from local animal shelters and rescue organizations and therefore does not accept advertising from breeders OR pet shops who advertise the sale of these animals. We acknowledge that there are many reputable, responsible breeders in the state but strongly believe that we would be defeating our cause by accepting any advertising from these parties. and…please remember to SPAY OR NEUTER your pet…you will be saving lives, as well as improving your pet’s health and life expectancy!
