SMAWL holds adoption events every Saturday, year-round, at the Petco in California, Maryland.(45205 Worth Lane) Be sure to stop by and meet many of the wonderful dogs and cats we have waiting to find a furever home. All of our dogs and cats are disease tested, up to date on rabies vaccinations, and microchipped.

The event hours are 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM.

The Cat Castle, in Callaway Villiage Shopping Center, is open on Sat and Sun from 11-4 and on weekdays by appointment.
