Rescue Groups

Tri-County Animal Shelter

​The shelter needs of Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s Counties are provided by the government-run Tri-County Animal Shelter. Lost and stray animals are housed as they wait to be claimed by their owners or adopted to new owners. Tidewater Veterinary Hospital gives back to the community by supporting the services and products for community residents to adopt a new friend from the Tri-County Animal Shelter at low cost!

Second Hope Rescue

​A group of animal-loving friends joined together to commit to giving a “Second Hope” to hard-to-place animals,due to breed or age, that are searching for their forever homes. Collectively with over 20 years of rescue experience, this group works with other rescues and on their own.

Animal Rescue Foundation

The ground-breaking approach used by Animal Rescue Foundation is something that can be duplicated across the nation, providing a safe and natural environment for homeless felines. Some organizations trap feral cats, spay / neuter them, and then release them back to the environment that they came from. But these cats and kittens are still subject to predators, inclement weather, and a lifespan of 3-5 years.
