Welcome to the SPCA of Anne Arundel County

Join #TeamSPCA in rescuing animals in need and saving lives: adopt, volunteer, foster, donate

We want all of our homeless dogs, cats, guinea pigs, and bunnies to find forever homes. So, if you are looking for a new companion, check out our currently available pets!

Our volunteers are vital to our success. They assist with socializing our animals, managing events, and so much more. If you have spare time and love to share, join our team and help save lives!

Our fosters provide a safe space for our most vulnerable animals to grow, heal, and recover. If you have some extra space and love to share, join our foster family and help save lives!

We receive no financial support from national animal welfare organizations or the government. We rely entirely on donations to help homeless animals in need. Each and every donation is appreciated!

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors!

Dear Friends of the SPCA of Anne Arundel County,


Our Dog Room is open for limited walk-throughs to the public during the hours of 12pm to 3pm. Please be aware you that scheduled appointments (meet & greets) will have priority, so there will be a wait time. Social distancing is required.

We are unable to offer walk-through visits of the Cat Room or Petite Suite at this time. Please make an appointment to meet our cats or small animals.


If you are interested in adopting an animal you can find out more about our adoption process here.

Please be patient, as the Adoption Process will be delayed. 


We are still accepting donations of new & unopened pet supplies (food, treats, etc).

We can not take any used or opened donations at this time.


       Emergency services such as Animal Surrender, Euthanasia, and Cremation will

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!
