BALTIMORE (WJZ) — If you’re looking for a furry new family member, now is a great time to adopt.

Linh Bui reports a local shelter is at capacity with dogs and needs your help.

June is “Pet Adoption Month” and you can take advantage of a “Lonely Hearts Weekend Adoption Special.”

The pups at the SPCA of Anne Arundel County are happy, healthy and ready for their new homes. The Rossbachs are looking for a four-legged addition to their family.

“We go hiking and camping, so we’d like a dog that would spend a lot of time outdoors with us and basically is good with the kids and just another member of the family,” Joseph Rossbach said.

They’ve got their pick because right now the SPCA of Anne Arundel County is full. They can typically hold up to 90 dogs, including animals in foster care, but pet adoptions have slowed significantly.

Now they’re stretched to the limit and out of space.

“We’ve reached our capacity on dogs. So what we’re hoping for is to find some great homes so we can create some more space for other dogs that need to come in,” said Kelly Brown, president, SPCA of Anne Arundel County.

This weekend, they’re offering a special deal. Adoption fees are 50 percent off for all dogs at least 2 years old, so you’ll pay $60 instead of $120. The dogs have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and heartworm protected.

The Rossbachs have plenty to choose from, but know one thing for sure:

“We’ve always adopted. We like to adopt, to give a dog that needs a home a good place to live as opposed to buying one,” Joseph Rossbach said.

The adoption fee goes toward providing food, shelter and veterinary care for the animals.
