365 Days of Compassion Fundraiser

Sponsor a Day | Make a Difference

We all have days that are special, whether they’re birthdays, anniversaries, or even memorials. And while these days are meaningful and important to us, they are also extremely important to the animals in our care. Every single day is a day when hundreds of animals and families rely on the Virginia Beach SPCA for compassion and hope, empathy and understanding, adoptions and second chances. Every day matters, because every day animals need our help.

The VBSPCA 365 Days of Compassion Fundraiser is an opportunity for our passionate community to come together in support of the animals of our community, 365 days of the year.

Here’s how it works: Each date of the year is attached to a specific dollar amount depending on where it falls in the calendar.

  • January 1st is valued at $1
  • January 2nd is valued at $2
  • January 3rd is valued at $3
  • And so on, all the way up to December 31st which is valued at $365.

Pick a date, donate the amount associated with that date, and submit a name or short message which will be displayed on our Wall of Compassion both in our shelter and on our website. Select birth dates, anniversaries, or other memorable moments in time, and make your donation in honor or memory of something (or someone) special. Don’t have a date? Pick a dollar amount and make that day meaningful to the animals. There is no limit on the amount of days that you may sponsor – consider selecting a week, or even a month! Once each date of the year has been sponsored, this campaign will provide a total of $65,553 in funds to the animals of the Virginia Beach SPCA.

All sponsorships come with an inscription, and there is only one inscription/sponsorship available per day. Inscriptions on the website and on the Compassion Wall in our Shelter are updated daily Monday through Friday. If your special day has been taken, we can help you find another day that has been meaningful to one of our animals.
