First Responders Free Adoption


To express our gratitude for your service, Baltimore Humane Society offers waived adoption fees for any First Responder with a current valid id. Any police officers, firefighters, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, or 911 dispatchers from any jurisdiction are welcome to adopt any of our shelter pets for free.

Families of fallen First Responders are also invited to take advantage of this special program.  The value of a loving pet in a time of loss cannot be underestimated.  And it’s our way of saying thank you for your sacrifice.

Despite the fact that we are a private, non-profit animal shelter and do not receive any government funding, we are still offering this program to all First Responders regardless of jurisdiction in which they work. All standard adoption procedures still apply.

This is our way of thanking the brave men and women who devote their lives every day to serving, protecting, and rescuing each of us in our community.
