As part of its community involvement, Mr. Basement is involved with the Maryland SPCA. The SPCA is the primary advocate for animals in the region, a role Mr. Basement believes in.
Mr. Basement partners with the Maryland SPCA to produce the popular "Friday Puppy" segment on WJZ-TV in Baltimore.
Each Friday Puppy segment features an adorable, adoptable dog wearing a yellow Mr. Basement scarf, introduced to the public on air.
The SPCA reports Mr. Basement's involvement has been crucial to finding many sweet dogs new forever homes.
Mr. Basement was also a sponsor of the 2011 March for Animals.
"The Maryland SPCA is a private, nonprofit, independent organization dedicated to helping animals and people. Our mission is to improve the lives of pets and people in the community. We operate primarily in the Greater Baltimore Metropolitan area. We are not affiliated with any national animal organization, and we do not receive any government or United Way funding.
Our adoption center adopts out over 3,000 needy and unwanted pets each year. We focus on being progressive in the way we run our adoption center. We pride ourselves on providing premium care to the animals in a clean, pleasant environment.
Consider Adopting a New Furrriend!
Our adoption staff works diligently to pair up adopters with the best animal match for their homes and lifestyles.
While animals are in our care they receive high-quality food, necessary medications and vaccinations and enrichment to make them well-adjusted and ready to be welcomed into a new home.
We also work to prevent pet abandonment by being a resource for the community. We offer behavior counseling and training courses to help keep pets in homes.
Spay/neuter is also critical to our mission and we provide these services to: our adopted animals, to animals from area rescue groups and shelters and, in partnership with other groups, to feral cat colonies to reduce overpopulation and suffering.
Thousands of pets and people in our community are served each year through these efforts."
