Ways to Give (Individuals)

Why give to the SPCA of Anne Arundel County?

Did you know that in a single year, the SPCA of Anne Arundel County (AACSPCA) takes in thousands of animals? This is why donations are so vital to us.

The money generated by our minimal adoption fees does not begin to cover our shelter expenses, much less the many services we offer throughout the year.

Who Supports the AACSPCA?

The SPCA of Anne Arundel County is not affiliated with, or supported by, any other AACSPCA or humane organization. There is no national structure for AACSPCAs and we are not a chapter of any larger organization.

We are a private, non-profit organization that serves Anne Arundel County. We receive no funds from local, state or federal government. The AACSPCA relies on the generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to ensure that homeless companion animals receive the best possible care.

Donor Privacy Policy

The SPCA of Anne Arundel County does not sell or trade our donors’ personal or contact information with anyone else. We do not send mailings on behalf of other organizations.
