SPCA of Anne Arundel County

The SPCA of Anne Arundel County is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in Anne Arundel County. They provide shelter and humane care for homeless animals in need and work as advocates for animal welfare in our community.

They embrace animals in need - regardless of age, breed, or physical condition - and provide them with the care they deserve for as long as it takes us to find them a home. As a result of our efforts in 2014, they achieved a record high life-saving rate of 98 percent - one of the highest in this country - a remarkable achievement as they accept animals others turn away.
