Pet Food Bank

The SPCA of Anne Arundel County’s (AACSPCA) Pet Food Bank Program aims to keep pets in homes. 

The program is made possible by the generous contributions of the community members, businesses, and volunteers of the AACSPCA. Distribution of pet food is available to approved applicants who are struggling to feed their pet(s). The Pet food assistance program is temporary and will last up to one (1) year from date of approval. Individuals receiving assistance must pick-up and transfer their own pet food, as delivery is not currently available. Applicants are allowed to have one (1) person other than themselves who is authorized to pick up food on behalf of them.


  • An application must be completed to be considered for assistance.
  • All information provided is used only to determine your need for pet food and will not be shared with any third party.
  • Only one applicant per household/address is allowed.
  • Applicant must be at least 18 years old.
  • Applicant must present state issued photo identification and be enrolled in a state or federally assisted program or provide proof of unemployment benefits, or other proof of financial hardship will be considered within two weeks of application date.
  • Identification is required each time food is picked up.
  • Pet Food Assistance will last up to one (1) year from date of approved application.
  • After enrollment in the SPCA’s Pet Food Bank Program, you cannot add to the number of pets in your home. Doing so will disqualify you from future assistance.
  • Applicant must provide written documentation that your pet is spay/neutered. Proof is required.
  • If your pet(s) are not spayed/neutered, the SPCA will help you with this directly OR provide you with a list of low-cost spay/neuter clinics in your area.
  • Food provided through the SPCA may not be sold to other people.
  • All food that we distribute has either been donated or purchased with donated funds. Therefore, there may be occasions where food is unavailable.
  • The SPCA reserves the right to dent, terminate, or make exceptions for pet food assistance based on individual needs and circumstances.

Dear Friends of the SPCA of Anne Arundel County,

As you’ve read in the press or seen on the news, the number of cases of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

in the United States has drastically increased over the last few days. Without any signs of slowing — and with

the speed that the virus is spreading — we have modified our existing shelter visitation policies. 

Our focus remains on the health and safety of our employees and volunteers who are vital to the care of all our

four-legged guests.

-Until at least Monday, March 30 to comply with the current executive order of the Governor's Office, our shelter is closed to the public. Select services have moved to appointment ONLY. There will be no exceptions made.

-This includes animal surrenders, new donation drop off, Spay and Neuter Clinic appointments, foster animal appointments or any other business. Animal  viewings and adoptions are not being offered at this time.

       -We are only accepting donations of new supplies. Again, donation drop offs are by appointment only. 

-This policy will allow us to honor the practice of "social distancing," keeping of at least 6' away from one another to help contain the spread of the virus.

We also urge all potential visitors to  consider postponing scheduling appointments at our shelter

if you are showing any symptoms of the virus. We will continue to closely monitor the outbreak of

COVID-19 and return to our existing policies as soon as we feel confident in our safety.

Don't worry, our staff will still be on hand  to take care of the shelter animals and give them lots of love & care.

For more information on the pandemic, please visit:

Please be advised we will be closed to the public on May 10th, 2018 - because we're getting a facelift!

The Keller Williams Flagship of Maryland (Millersville, MD) and its associates will be revitalizing the SPCA of Anne Arundel County’s Adoption Site for their annual RED Day Project! Please consider volunteering man hours on the event day or expressing your thanks on their Facebook page!

Thank you, Keller Williams!
