Many pet owners worry about the care of their pets should their pets outlive them. Some people have friends or family members with whom they can entrust their pets. For people who don't, the Maryland SPCA has created the Legacy of Care program. Pets enrolled in Legacy of Care will be placed in a carefully screened, permanent home upon the owner’s death.

To ensure the best placement, there is an enrollment and screening process. We also require provisions be made in your estate for your pet. This enables us to provide lifetime medical care for your pet.

Legacy of Care is piece of mind for pet owners. If you are interested in learning more about the program, contact Emily Finton, Development Services Coordinator, at 410-235-8826, ext. 135 or efinton@mdspca.org. We also offer a Legacy of Care brochure.
