Looking to add a fur kid to your family, volunteer or make a donation to a worthy non-profit? Here's a list of Annapolis area groups that make a difference (in no particular order):

Animal Legal Defense Fund

While not located in Annapolis, this nation group fights to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system.

After two plus years, ALDF won the case in 2007 and freed over 300 dogs that would have never known what a home was if it was not for ALDF.
