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!

Shelter Policies (updated February 19th 2021)

Animal Viewing at our Main Shelter is available daily from 12pm to 3pm. Small animals and cats can be viewed daily at Paws at the Mall! Masks are required and social distancing is in effect.

If you are interested in meeting or adopting an animal, you can find out more about our adoption process here. We appreciate your patience, as the Adoption Process will be delayed. All Animal Meet & Greets will be by scheduled appointment only after your Application has been processed.

We are still accepting donations of new & unopened pet supplies (food, treats, etc). These items can be dropped off outside our Main Shelter on the designated donation table. We can not take any used or opened donations at this time.


Emergency services such as Animal Surrender are available by appointment only.

To schedule an appointment for Animal Surrender, please call & leave a message at 410-268-4388 ext 141.

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!
