The Kramer Family adopted Sammi in November of 1994.  She was around a year when we got her and is now 17 or 18 years old!  She loves going on long walks every day and lounging in her favorite chair.  Sammi has her good and bad days, but is doing amazing well.  She had been at the shelter for almost 2 months when we adopted her and we are thrilled that we have been able to give her a long, wonderful life.

Snickers (the doodle, who found himself at the SPCA at 6 months and then again at 3 years) came to his forever home with us in Fall 2006; Jasper (the cat, who came to the SPCA when the new baby, toddler and dog in his prior family pushed him out) came to his forever home with us in Fall 2010 - two sweeties who are finally getting along pretty well!  ;)

Hi SPCA!!!

This is an update from Aris!  My new mommy and daddy decided to rename me Hazel.  I am the little kitten that one of your workers saved after being hit my a car on Aris T Allen Blvd.  I just wanted to let you know that since I left the SPCA last June, I've been loving my new home!  I've grown from 3 pounds to 11.5 pounds and my stripes are so pretty!  My new home has lots of sunny spots to sun bathe and my mommy and daddy snuggle with me everyday.  Thank you so much for saving me from the busy streets.  I'm so happy and I know my mommy and daddy are happy to have me as their first "baby."  Thanks again!


We adopted Lucy (Treasure) in January 2011. Initially my boyfriend and I were just playing with the idea of bringing a dog into the home. We went to the Anne Arundel SPCA one Sunday afternoon and first saw her and fell in love. We took her outside and all she wanted to do was play and have fun. We loved her. I knew when we left there she was who I wanted to take home and care for as long as I could. She is currently sound asleep on the couch as I am writing this. She loves to play and chew up toys and tear up the house. I miss her when I go to work and cannot wait until I can come home and play with her. It breaks my heart not knowing what her past was like but considering her sweet demeanor, it can’t be all that bad. The only issue is that some people are afraid of her not knowing what her breed is. She looks like she could be in the Pitbull family but we could care less. We could not imagine our days without our Lucy. Thank you so much for bringing her into our lives!
