Thursday February 10th, 2022. Baltimore, MD.
We are bringing the Puppie Love® to Annapolis, MD! And this time…it’s not just a check! Our next donation of $5000 goes to the SPCA of Anne Arundel County (AACSPCA).
The AACSPCA was founded in 1920 to help the stray dogs in the area. For many years following their inception, the organization handled dog licensing and enforcement operating a fleet of six ambulances that were dispatched through the city to assist injured animals. Now in 2022, the AASPCA has continued to provide shelter and humane care for homeless animals in need while also advocating for animal welfare in their community.
One thing (of many) that we LOVE about AACSPCA, is there is no time limit placed on how long an animal is available for adoption. They embrace animals in need – regardless of age, breed, or physical condition – and provide them with care until they find a forever home! They take in dogs, cats, rabbits, and MORE!
As a result of their efforts they have maintained a record high life-saving rate of 98% every year since 2014, and have been awarded the Charity Navigator award for many consecutive years. The below quote is from Michael Thatcher, President of Charity Navigator:
“This is our highest possible rating and indicates that your organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that [the] SPCA of Anne Arundel County exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work. Only 13% of charities we evaluate have received at least 6 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that [the] SPCA of Anne Arundel County outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets [the]SPCA of Anne Arundel County apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”(https://aacspca.org/about-us/)
The AACSPCA offers numerous services including:
- Spay & Neuter Clinic
- Pet Food Bank
- Vaccine Clinic
- Education & Outreach
- Pet Surrender
- Pet Cremation
AACSPCA additionally holds many fundraising events throughout the year. One of which is just around the corner. Hearts and Hounds Mall Crawl that will be held on February 13th at the Westfield Annapolis Mall!
Puppie Love® could not be more honored to have the ability to donate to such a wonderful organization, and it is all thanks to our customers! We were lucky enough to visit the AACSPCA for a day, bring food, toys, beds, blankets, and numerous other supplies and meet some of the precious animals available for adoption. Thank you to the AACSPC and all of their amazing work! Thank you to our Puppie Love® pack for making this possible!
