Through our transport program, we take in animals from other shelters, giving the animals the opportunity to be adopted at the Maryland SPCA, which allows overcrowded shelters to focus on other animals. We typically travel to BARCS in our transport van and bring animals back to the MD SPCA several times a week. In 2012, we transported more than 1,200 animals both within the Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance and outside regions to the Maryland SPCA. At the Maryland SPCA, the transported animals are examined by our medical staff and behavior specialists and then enter our adoption program. Our adoption program does not have a time limit, but we work hard to keep the average length of stay for our pets short.
