Dogs and cats are available to adopt or foster from the Partnership of Animal Welfare. Once the potential owner knows what type of animal, temperament, activity level suits their lifestyle, meeting the animal and filling out a no-obligation application is necessary. Adoption shows often take place in the Maryland area, for prospective owners to meet dogs and cats that they're interested in as well as talk to foster homes about each individual's nuances. However, not all dogs and cats go to shows and the no-obligation application ensures prospective owners are contacted by the rescue shelter and a visit is arranged.

A family member that is 18 years or older needs to sign adoption applications. The application provides background information about households, prior pet experience and gets reviewed by a team of volunteers. Applications are reviewed within 10 days and, if successful, applicants undergo further checks including vet and home checks. Upon successful completion, potential owners can meet the animal and sign a legal adoption contract.

Partnership of Animal Welfare provides opportunities for locals to volunteer directly with the animals and at shows. People may get involved with exercising the dogs, transporting animals to vets, fostering animals or fund-raising at special events.
