During the month of February we’re raising funds to cover the treatment costs for VBSPCA dogs infected with heartworm. Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the United States and many other parts of the world. It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure and damage to other organs in the body.
Heartworm is preventable and treatable, but treatment is expensive. The Virginia Beach SPCA Clinic offers heartworm treatment for dogs which includes all diagnostics, all prescriptions, and 6-mo post-treatment follow up. Your gift to the Broken Hearts Club helps to cover the cost of treatment for heartworm positive dogs hoping to be adopted into their forever home.
Your gift to the Broken Hearts Club will ensure a heartworm positive dog gets the treatment they need, helping them find their forever home.

All donations to the Broken Hearts Club will go directly towards the treatment of the heartworm positive dogs listed below.
