COVID-19 Shelter Policies Update

COVID-19 Shelter Policies Update

As COVID-19 is an ever-evolving situation, the SPCA of Anne Arundel County needs to remain vigilant but also be prepared to adapt. In order to keep everyone safe, we have made a few changes to our current animal viewing and adoption process. Until further notice, we have put the following policies into place:

Public viewing for animals is currently closed.

We are currently not accepting item donations at this time. However, if you have brand new items you would like to donate, please contact us to see if we can make an exception. Any donations should be dropped off in our designated area outside of the shelter building.

Although you may not be able to come into the shelter to visit our animals in dog or cat room, you can certainly look at our website for your potential new best friend.

If you would like to adopt an animal, you must first fill out an Adoption Application. Once you’ve emailed or faxed the application and it has been processed, one of our staff members will call you to talk about the next steps. Please be aware the adoption process will be heavily delayed due to current restrictions.

As the situation develops, we will continue to provide updates and notify you of any changes. Please know, we are providing the same love, care and attention for our animals that we always do.

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.

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