Lost / Found Animals

If you have found a stray animal in Anne Arundel County and are unable to locate an owner, please call Anne Arundel County Animal Care & Control at 410-222-8900.

Stray animals are handled by Anne Arundel County Animal Care and Control’s shelter in Millersville.

A stray animal found in Anne Arundel County that is brought to the SPCA of Anne Arundel County (AACSPCA) will be signed in on our “stray animal” form.  The animal will be transported by Animal Care and Control to their facility where it has the best chance of being reunited with its owner.

Taking a stray animal you have found directly to Animal Care and Control is less stressful on the lost pet.

Remember:
We are not able to keep stray animals – they must go to Animal Care and Control in Millersville – this is a county law!

If you have lost or found an animal, it will also be helpful to post a picture on the Facebook page Lost & Found Pets of Anne Arundel County.

If you have found a stray animal outside of Anne Arundel County, please contact the Animal Control that services that county or city to give the animal the best chance of being reunited with its owner.
