Maryland Votes for Animals was at the Adopt-A-Thon at Anne Arundel County Animal Control on Saturday, May 12.

Maryland Votes for Animals presented the staff of animal control with an award to recognize their efforts to place more homeless animals in new homes. And Animal Control adopted out 18 cats and dogs during the event!
