Defenders of Animal Rights, Inc., is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating cruelty to all animals. Founded in 1975, we celebrate our 35th Anniversary this year!

In 1988, our shelter opened in the middle of a 35.8 acre wildlife sanctuary in Northern Baltimore County. What makes Defenders so unique is that we hold adoptable animals for as long as it takes to find each and every one a forever home. We have adopted out over 26,000 animals! Our adoption rate is about 97%.

Defenders of Animal Rights offers a variety of programs to benefit both the animals and the community. Below is a directory of services:

~ Pet Adoption Center

~ Animal Rescues and Veterinary Care
~ Rehabilitation of abused, neglected, and abandoned animals
~ Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Program
