The SPCA of Anne Arundel County (AACSPCA) is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in Anne Arundel County. We provide shelter and humane care for homeless animals in need and work as advocates for animal welfare in our community. At the AACSPCA, there is no time limit placed on how long an animal is available for adoption. We 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 and your support, we have maintained a record high life-saving rate of 98 percent every year since 2014 - one of the highest in this country - a remarkable achievement as we accept animals others turn away.
In order to adopt an animal from us, you must first fill out a Request for Adoption application. Please read the application thoroughly and answer all of the questions. Incomplete or illegible answers will increase the time it takes to review the application. If you have any questions, please contact us and ask for clarification. Once you submit your Request for Adoption application, it will be reviewed by our Adoption Committee. We can not give an estimated time frame of the reviewing process, as the process is currently delayed . We review all applications thoroughly to ensure that our animals go to the best homes possible. Please keep in mind that we may receive multiple applications on each animal offered for adoption. The Adoption Committee considers all homes and determines which home is the best match for the animal. The animal may not necessarily go to the first applicant, but will be adopted to the home that best fits the animal’s needs. In addition to reviewing an application, we require a house check for some dogs, including all dominant breeds, prior to the adoptions approval. We are only able to perform house checks within the boundaries of Anne Arundel County. After your application has been reviewed, you will be contacted by a member of the Adoption Committee. If approved, they will provide you with the next steps to bringing the animal home. Thank you for your interest in adopting an animal from the SPCA of Anne Arundel County and for your patience during our review process. We reserve the right to decline any Request for Adoption application.

In a good home we have been known to live as long as 35 years, and in most households today, 18-20 is not that uncommon. We, however, as Feral Cats, can just have very short life spans of 3-5 years. If we are not hit by speeding drivers on cell phones or those just not paying attention, if we are not injured, or come down with a virus or bacterial infection, the stress we have to live under grossl
