Francesca fawns for a family!

Francesca fawns for a family!

Starting off 2020 with a ridiculous amount of cuteness, we’d like to showcase Francesca!

Francesca, often called Frannie by her shelter friends, is a 5 year old Pitbull mix who has been at our shelter since June of 2018.

She loves people – snuggling with  humans is one of her favorite activities! This special girl is a total love, but she wants you all to herself and cannot go to a home with other animals. When she sees her volunteer and staff friends, she gets so happy and starts wiggling her butt like its 1999! Francesca is part of our shelter’s enrichment program and has stolen the hearts of our volunteers. In the program she is learning basic manners as she awaits her fur-ever home. Her ideal home is active, but understanding that she does not get along well with other dogs. She would thrive in an environment with with a yard and a place where walking her will not lead to running into too many other dogs (apartments, downtown city etc.) and someone willing to give her a little training and guidance!


1. She has never met a stranger! Frannie is instantly best friends with every human she meets. 

2. Francesca has spent over 551 days waiting for adoption, and 551 nights alone in her kennel!

3. Francesca will be turning 6 years old in February. She is a mature and laid back lady, but she still loves to play with toys like a puppy!

5. Ok, we’ll admit it, she is a stuffed animal shredder. Can you say “stuffing explosion?!” 

6. Francesca is very tolerant of costumes and playing dress up, mostly because she likes the extra attention.

7. She needed two knee surgeries and has made an excellent recovery.

8. She loves splashing and lounging in the baby pool when it’s hot outside

If you think you would be a good fit for this sweet pooch, contact our shelter today by calling 410-268-4388 or emailing!

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!
