Why Give to the SPCA? 

Did you know that in a single year, the SPCA of Anne Arundel County 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.
