...three people saw a need and said "we want to help." We are a 100% volunteer based organization born out of the desire to make things better and the drive to make a difference in the lives of neglected animals. With over 15 years of rescue experience, the Directors of PAR strive to help the homeless and needy animals in Baltimore and the surrounding areas find the loving homes they deserve.
We have no public facility, but operate with a network of dedicated foster parents and volunteers. To respect the privacy of our foster parents we do require an approved application to visit any of our fostered animals. We also partner with local pet supply stores to house adoptable pets and hold events where you can visit even more of our wonderful animals! Take a look at our events page for more information!
We receive no funding from any government source. We rely completely on adoption fees and donations. We are a registered 501(c)3 so all donations are tax deductible as the tax law permits. Please visit our donation page for information on how to help us help more animals, we can't do it without you!
While screening applications for potential adopters, please know that we are looking for the best match for our adoptable pets. Since we are foster-based, we require an approved application prior to setting up meet-and-greets with our pets. Some of our adoptable pets are able to be visited in the Towson and Timonium Petco locations, but in order to have someone meet you so that you can interact with them, we require an approved application. We work very hard to be sure when you adopt a pet from us, it will be for their lifetime.
