COVID-19 Shelter Policies Update

COVID-19 Shelter Policies Update

UPDATED 10/25 – 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:

Dog Room Walk Throughs are available from 12pm to 3pm daily, no appointment is needed to walk through. All animal meet & greets will be done by appointment only after your Adoption Application has been submitted and approved.

We are currently not accepting used item donations at this time. However, if you have brand new items like sealed pet food you would like to donate, please contact us! Any donations should be dropped off in our designated area outside of the shelter building.

Emergency services such as Animal Surrender, Euthanasia, and Cremation will still be available by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, please call & leave a message at 410-268-4388 ext 141.

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.
