To save and find homes for the thousands of homeless cats and kittens in Harford County and all across Maryland, the Humane Society of Harford County (HSHC) is teaming up with 15 other shelters in the state to participate in the first-ever Maryland 2,000 Saving Lives Across Maryland adoption event. Beginning July 1st through July 31st, HSHC will waive adoption fees for felines with the collective goal of finding homes for at least 2,000 unwanted cats and kittens across the state. Cats of all ages, colors and personalities will be available for adoption, including kittens who are born during the warm summer months, known as Kitten Season.

Cats and kittens adopted from HSHC include a distemper vaccination (FVRCP for cats), a rabies vaccination (if the kitty is at least 3 months old), FeLV (feline leukemia) & FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) testing, de-wormer, flea & tick preventative, a microchip, a free sample of Hill’s Science Diet dry food, and a general exam. Regular adoption procedures still apply. If the cat or kitten selected is not already spayed or neutered, a $50 deposit for a HASP (Harford Animal Sterilization Program) certificate is required. Adopters will be provided with a certificate for the surgical procedure and a list of participating veterinarians. The fee is refunded upon completion of the procedure within 60 days.

The Humane Society of Harford County is located at 2208 Connolly Road, Fallston, MD 21047. For more information about adopting from HSHC or more information about the Maryland 2,000 Saving Lives Across Maryland, visit
