Financial Support


The money you donate to FRIENDS is used to support our mission: to enrich the lives of the homeless animals at Anne Arundel County Animal Care & Control, to promote their adoption and rescue, and to reduce their euthanasia.

What Else Can You Donate?


Because FRIENDS can buy many needed items in quantity, and sometimes at a special discount because of our nonprofit status, a monetary donation is always welcome. However, there are many other items that are needed at the shelter. Please click on the link above to see a list of the items needed.

Volunteering at AACACC


If you volunteer at Anne Arundel County Animal Care & Control, you will do real, meaningful work that truly makes a difference — and you’ll also get quite an education. Plus one of the best parts of all? You get to pet lots and lots of dogs and cats!

Fostering at AACACC


If you are approved to foster for Animal Care & Control, you will receive education and support from its network of fosters and shelter staff. FRIENDS will provide some of the food and supplies you will need and also access to a veterinarian if needed.
