Activity of the Month

The Virginia Beach SPCA offers educational activities or challenges to engage children at home. From writing competitions to art challenges to kindness calendars, we continue to provide new ways to spread the mission of the VBSPCA while also having a little bit of fun in this new virtual landscape.

September 1st through November 30th – VBSPCA Fall Reading Challenge 

We’re calling all children to participate in a fun reading challenge to foster the joy of books while also learning more about animals and the mission of the Virginia Beach SPCA. We’ve put together an interactive worksheet with three different reading challenges plus some educational bookmarks to instill character values in our young animal lovers (who will be tomorrow’s animal heroes! ) Plus, for each challenge completed, readers win prizes!

  • Readers who complete the first challenge will receive an official Certificate of Completion to celebrate the milestone.
  • Readers who finish the first and the second challenge will receive a certificate + some adorable stickers and pencils.
  • Readers who complete all three challenges will receive the certificate + pencils & stickers + a VBSPCA t-shirt!

Once challenges have been met, submit completed worksheets and/or any questions to humaneeducation@vbspca.com. We will prepare your prizes (and confirm t-shirt sizes!) , and once you hear back from us you can pickup at the shelter any day between 11am and 5pm. Challenge worksheets can also be picked up at the shelter if you do not have a printer available at home.
