Puppy Plunge – 8/16

2020 Poster and Event Details Coming Soon! Stay Tuned…

What is the Puppy Plunge?

The Puppy Plunge is a lot of things: dog-friendly, family fun, wet, musical, and all around entertaining! There are two beaches for the actual plunge, one for big dogs (Muscle Beach) and one for small (Petite Beach), with SPCA volunteers on hand to monitor and keep all humans and dogs safe. There is also a dog wash station (by donation, also manned by SPCA volunteers) to get your pups cleaned up after the plunge! Afterwards, the pups can compete in doggie pie eating contests and show off in a dog bikini parade.

In addition to the actual plunge and doggie fun, there will be a variety of vendors and food trucks in attendance! You can visit with some of your favorite animal hospital teams, dog boarding/walking groups, and more. Then you can grab a bite to eat; we will have everything from Tex-Mex to Kettle Corn! At the same time, you can enjoy some music, provided by a DJ.

Attending the Event

Admission tickets are $10 each per car and can be purchased now or as you enter on the day of the event. All dogs and children 12 years old and under are free. You can add the option to register your dog in the muscle beach costume contest for free, or register your pup in the pie-eating contest for an additional $5!

Date: August 16th, 2020
Time: 12:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: 4003 Camp Letts Rd, Edgewater, MD 21037
If you haven’t been to Camp Letts before, don’t let that deter you – there will be plenty of signs making sure you find your way.

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!

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!
