The Virginia Beach SPCA is extremely grateful to our community for any and all efforts to fundraise for the animals! Your fundraiser or community event not only brings in donations that will help us with our operations, your efforts help raise awareness for the VBSPCA mission. As a nonprofit, we can’t do what we do without you.
If you would like to partner with the Virginia Beach SPCA for a fundraiser, adoption awareness event, or donation drive at your business, church, etc., please read through our policies below.

VBSPCA Third Party Fundraiser Policies:
- We have limited capacity to bring animals to offsite events, so animal requests are assessed on a case by case basis.
- The VBSPCA is unable to facilitate offsite animal adoptions. events.All prospective adopters will need to follow up post-event at the VBSPCA shelter (in accordance with regular business hours). We cannot guarantee the adoption status of an animal offsite, and we are unable to “hold” an animal for interested parties until an application has been completed at the shelter.
