Anne Arundel County Animal Control

Friends of Anne Arundel County Animal Control, Inc. exists to help the thousands of homeless pets that arrive each year at this open-access shelter. It was formed by the shelter’s volunteers to do what this government-run shelter cannot do itself: Ask for money to supplement its slim county budget, solicit in-kind assistance from businesses and individuals and promote the many good things being done by AACAC for needy pets in Anne Arundel County both in and out of the shelter. Friends of AACAC provides the animals with thousands of dollars in food, vet visits, flea/tick medications and other fairly basic day-to-day comforts that are not covered by the shelter’s budget, as well as bigger ticket enhancements to the shelter such as sound-abatement improvements to its dog adoption gallery. Because the members of Friends of AACAC are shelter volunteers, we see its needs up close, and we look every day into the eyes of frightened animals that need our help – and yours. For more information and to volunteer, see web site at: www.faacac.org/get-involved/. Also, to contact Animal Control, call (410) 222-8900 and see website: www.aacounty.org/AnimalControl/.
