Our Mission

Rescue Angels of Southern Maryland, Inc. (RASM) is a non-profit animal rescue in Southern MD.  Since 2013, RASM has been busy rescuing dogs and cats in the Southern Maryland area and beyond. We are a foster home based, 501c3 non-profit animal rescue organization focused on rescuing dogs and cats in need and providing them permanent safe placement in new homes. We have a dedicated, talented team of rescuers that work together for one cause.  In addition to our foster and adoption programs, we have a successful TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) program that has helped sterilize and provide vet care including vaccinations for hundreds of feral cats. We strongly believe in spaying/neutering pets and continued veterinary care to help them live their best lives. We are strongly against animal abuse and neglect, puppy mills, and irresponsible pet ownership. We also have a professional team of certified trappers and trackers for lost dog and cat recovery.

Our mission is to always do the right thing for animals.

"We are their voice. We are their Angels."
