Please Note:
The aforementioned services are not for the removal of owned deceased pets.  If a constituent does suffer the loss of a beloved pet, Anne Arundel County Animal Care & Control can handle the disposal of the remains for the citizen if the deceased pet is brought to the facility during normal business hours.   There is a fee of $0.77 per pound for this service.  We are not able to cremate and return a pet.
