Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. My name is Shadow and I just don't understand why no one wants me. I have been waiting patiently at my foster home for a while for someone to make me their own. While my foster home is great and I have enjoyed my time learning to play with other dogs, I am ready for a home and a family to call my own. Can you be that loving home I am looking for?? I am a four year old neutered lab/beagle mix. I weigh 55 pounds, which is the perfect size-not too small, not too big. I love the children at my foster home and when it is time for them to wake up, their Mom sends me in their room to lick their face until she knows they are awake. Oh how much I love to give kisses! My foster Mom says that my name is fitting, because I like to follow her around everywhere just like her very own Shadow. I already know some basic commands like sit and give paw, and am working on the come command. Also, and this is probably the best-I am house trained. Before coming to SMAWL, I was not socialized with other dogs, so I need help when being introduced to dogs. I am slowly getting this doggy play thing down with my foster brother. He is a large dog which I like to be around better, sorry I can't go to a home with a small dog, or cat. My foster Mom says the perfect home for me would be in a house with someone who is home a lot as I like my people. Also, I make a great running buddy, so someone who is active would be great also. If you are interested, and do not have cats or dogs smaller than me, please fill out an application! ========================= About Our Rescue Group: The St. Mary's Animal Welfare League is a nonprofit, rescue organization that specializes in the rescue, care and placement of abused, neglected and homeless companion animals. Our animals are vaccinated, microchipped, spayed or neutered and receive medical treatment before being placed in carefully selected homes. We strive to educate the community in areas of humane education and responsible pet ownership as well as helping to control the pet overpopulation in our area by promoting the spaying and neutering of all companion animals. ===Come Meet Our Pets: Come meet our cats every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. located at Petco in California Maryland. We also have a cat facility in Callaway. The Cat Castle Rescue Center is located in the Callaway Village Shopping Center and is open every Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 3pm. Please contact info@smawl.org for appointments to meet our dogs. ===Our Adoption Process: It is the St. Mary’s Animal Welfare League’s policy to attempt to place each of our rescued animals in a home that is well- suited to their needs. Once an animal is placed from our rescue, the animal cannot be sold, given away or otherwise transferred. If the adopter is, at any time, unable to keep or continue to maintain the animal for any reason, the animal must be returned to the St. Mary’s Animal Welfare League. We work hard at matching our animals to adopters, so they may end their search for a loving, permanent home. Temperament, special needs and personality are all factors in our placements. ===Step #1 The Adoption Application The initial step in our adoption process is the Adoption Application. This can either be done online or in person. The Adoption form must be filled out completely including vet references and two personal non-family references. Your application will be reviewed and your references will be contacted. We contact your veterinarian to ensure that your current or recently deceased pets were properly taken care of---this means being current on all vaccinations and spayed or neutered. In order to speed up the process, please contact your veterinarian and let them know to expect our call. ===Step #2 Personal Interview You will be interviewed by a SMAWL Board Member or Volunteer either through phone, email or in person. This is an opportunity to learn more specifics about you, your family, your pets and the type of pet you are looking for. At this time, we may suggest that you consider a different animal---one that we may feel might be more acceptable for your situation. If you are completing your application in person, this will most likely be done at that time of completion. ===Step #3 The Home Visit If all goes well with the application verification, we will schedule a home visit. A home visit is required to ensure that your home is everything you say it is on the Adoption Application. It needs to be a suitable safe environment for your new pet. All pets and family members should be home at this time. ===Step #4 Meeting Your Potential Adoptee Once the Application has been reviewed and all references checked, arrangements will be made for you to meet with the animal you wish to adopt, either through the foster parent or the animal’s Case Manager. As a courtesy to our foster families, we do not ask them to show their animals to individuals until we have completed the application approval process. If you have other animals, we recommend a neutral meeting place, such as PETCO or a local park to ensure the animals are compatible outside of their own territory. ===Step #5 Finalizing The Adoption Once the adoption has been approved, we will contact you to finalize the adoption. You will need to sign the contract and pay our adoption fee. (Young Dogs Under 1 =$300, Dogs over 1 = $250, Young Cats 2 years and under =$125, Older Cats over 2 years = $75) Foster to adopt over a two week period may be available on a case by case basis. Any applications received for adoptions from beyond St Mary's county line, will be subject to additional terms and conditions available on request. Please Remember: Our entire organization is staffed by volunteers. We have NO paid staff. Our volunteers must work your application around their business and personal lives. We do our best to respond to all inquiries within 2-3 days, and most of the time we are able to respond within 1 day. Please be patient and thank the volunteers you meet for their service to our community’s homeless pet population. === We Serve the Following Cities, Towns, and/or Counties: We serve the Southern Maryland area.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

On top of that, I’m acing crate training AND taking obedience classes! I'm learning new things including walking on a leash.

I live in a wonderful foster home with another dog and share very well with her. She and I don't fight over toys, bones or food! I'm even going to obedience class to learn new things-my teacher says I'm a star!! It's nice to meet new dog friends too! I just got all my shots and am ready to find my forever home!

      Breed: Shih Tzu
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu. My name: Nala (Meaning “Gift” in Swahili) My age & breed/mix: Shih Tzu; approximately 8 years young My current diet: Hills Science Diet My story: My human daddy could no longer take care of me so SMAWL took me in. When I went to my first vet appointment, they said I had ear infections and a skin infection due to allergies. After medications, ear drops, ear cleaning and medicated baths, I feel like a new pup! Crate training: I'm used to being in a crate when my foster humans are gone during the day and at night. I do very well in it because I get special treats when I go in! Leash-walking skills: I walk very good on the leash. Extra info about me: I'm a very sweet girl who loves to give kisses. My foster mom is still getting to know the real me since I was so miserable when I first came to her. Now that I’m feeling better, my personality is starting to come out. I’m independent minded and know what I like. I love to just curl up and enjoy my surroundings. It’s so nice not to be as itchy. The vet said I have environmental allergies and I will need to be on medication (Apoquel) for the rest of my life – but I don’t mind since my foster mom puts the little bitty pill in some cheese. Most of the time I don’t even know I’m taking medicine. I will also need a medicated bath on a regular basis (once a week). These are a bit harder since I have to be lathered up for 10 minutes before getting rinsed off – not a fan, but I tolerate it. I really love: Playing. Stuffed toys with squeakers and treats! My foster mom has two huge toy boxes with doggie toys that I just discovered! Finding toys and playing is a new experience and I love it! I’ll plant a sloppy kiss on you when you least expect it though. ========================= About Our Rescue Group: The St. Mary's Animal Welfare League is a nonprofit, rescue organization that specializes in the rescue, care and placement of abused, neglected and homeless companion animals. Our animals are vaccinated, microchipped, spayed or neutered and receive medical treatment before being placed in carefully selected homes. We strive to educate the community in areas of humane education and responsible pet ownership as well as helping to control the pet overpopulation in our area by promoting the spaying and neutering of all companion animals. ===Come Meet Our Pets: Come meet our cats every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. located at Petco in California Maryland. We also have a cat facility in Callaway. The Cat Castle Rescue Center is located in the Callaway Village Shopping Center and is open every Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 3pm. Please contact info@smawl.org for appointments to meet our dogs. ===Our Adoption Process: It is the St. Mary’s Animal Welfare League’s policy to attempt to place each of our rescued animals in a home that is well- suited to their needs. Once an animal is placed from our rescue, the animal cannot be sold, given away or otherwise transferred. If the adopter is, at any time, unable to keep or continue to maintain the animal for any reason, the animal must be returned to the St. Mary’s Animal Welfare League. We work hard at matching our animals to adopters, so they may end their search for a loving, permanent home. Temperament, special needs and personality are all factors in our placements. ===Step #1 The Adoption Application The initial step in our adoption process is the Adoption Application. This can either be done online or in person. The Adoption form must be filled out completely including vet references and two personal non-family references. Your application will be reviewed and your references will be contacted. We contact your veterinarian to ensure that your current or recently deceased pets were properly taken care of---this means being current on all vaccinations and spayed or neutered. In order to speed up the process, please contact your veterinarian and let them know to expect our call. ===Step #2 Personal Interview You will be interviewed by a SMAWL Board Member or Volunteer either through phone, email or in person. This is an opportunity to learn more specifics about you, your family, your pets and the type of pet you are looking for. At this time, we may suggest that you consider a different animal---one that we may feel might be more acceptable for your situation. If you are completing your application in person, this will most likely be done at that time of completion. ===Step #3 The Home Visit If all goes well with the application verification, we will schedule a home visit. A home visit is required to ensure that your home is everything you say it is on the Adoption Application. It needs to be a suitable safe environment for your new pet. All pets and family members should be home at this time. ===Step #4 Meeting Your Potential Adoptee Once the Application has been reviewed and all references checked, arrangements will be made for you to meet with the animal you wish to adopt, either through the foster parent or the animal’s Case Manager. As a courtesy to our foster families, we do not ask them to show their animals to individuals until we have completed the application approval process. If you have other animals, we recommend a neutral meeting place, such as PETCO or a local park to ensure the animals are compatible outside of their own territory. ===Step #5 Finalizing The Adoption Once the adoption has been approved, we will contact you to finalize the adoption. You will need to sign the contract and pay our adoption fee. (Young Dogs Under 1 =$300, Dogs over 1 = $250, Young Cats 2 years and under =$125, Older Cats over 2 years = $75) Foster to adopt over a two week period may be available on a case by case basis. Any applications received for adoptions from beyond St Mary's county line, will be subject to additional terms and conditions available on request. Please Remember: Our entire organization is staffed by volunteers. We have NO paid staff. Our volunteers must work your application around their business and personal lives. We do our best to respond to all inquiries within 2-3 days, and most of the time we are able to respond within 1 day. Please be patient and thank the volunteers you meet for their service to our community’s homeless pet population. === We Serve the Following Cities, Towns, and/or Counties: We serve the Southern Maryland area.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Hi, my name is Bella. I am a one year old, medium sized, brindled pit bull terrior. I am up to date on my shots and take flea, tick and heartworm preventives. I'm even starting obedience class to learn good manners! I am crate trained and housebroken. I live in a foster home with a fenced in yard but I do very well on a leash too. I am currently being fostered in a home with young children, a dog and a cat (whom I'm very curious about). I love to play in the yard, snuggle with my family and chew on my Kong. I play well with other dogs and children of all ages. I love when the kids have their friends come over...more attention for me! My kisses and love will melt your heart. Please come see me at an adoption event or fill out an application!

I even won a kissing contest before! When I'm not giving kisses or getting my belly rubbed, I love to snuggle.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Sandy is about 8 and is a real love bug. However, she is special needs. She has grade 4 bi-lateral subluxing patellas (bad knees) but is able to get around quite well. In addition, she has been diagnosed with Cushings. Hers is on the adrenal gland, rather than the pituitary gland. She is on medication and the biggest consequence is her ability to control her bladder. She has also had a couple of seizures but none recently and they haven't been to the point where she needs medication. She would need regular blood tests and to continue on the medication so there is some commitment involved. Great with children of all ages, but would do best in a home with older children who can be gentle with her. Could that family be yours? She certainly hopes so! ========================= About Our Rescue Group: The St. Mary's Animal Welfare League is a nonprofit, rescue organization that specializes in the rescue, care and placement of abused, neglected and homeless companion animals.
