Adoptable Animal Search

The SPCA of Anne Arundel County has a save rate of over 97%. The animals included in the search below represent current animals available for adoption. Please check back frequently as this list is constantly being updated.

If you don’t find the perfect pet from this list or an image isn’t available, please visit the shelter  to see animals available for adoption. Our Main Shelter’s Dog Room & Cat Room are open daily from 11am to 4pm for viewing on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The shelter is closed to the public on Mondays and has later 12pm to 7pm viewing hours on Wednesdays.

You can also visit some adoptable animals at Paws at the Mall (closed on Mondays) and Kittens in Cups.

Be sure to review our adoption process and associated fees and check if we have any adoption specials that may apply.
