Compassion in the Community | February 2021

We know you love animals, and there are several ways to show you care this month. Read on for details on our Valentine’s themed fundraiser to provide medical care for our animals, which local business is giving you the chance to shop and give back at the same time, and the easy way you can show your love for the Virginia Beach SPCA all year long.

Love is in the Air – All Month Long
Throughout the month of February, we want to spread love to the homeless animals of the VBSPCA as they wait to find loving homes. For every donation of $5 or more, we will post a heart with your name on it in our shelter to showcase how much our community cares.

Each donation will go directly to the VBSPCA Miracle Medical Fund, which provides each of the animals who come through our doors with the medical care they need. From vaccines to lifesaving surgeries, your donations will ensure homeless animals get their second chance. Shelter animal medical care costs over $450,000 annually, and we could not provide this care without your generosity. Your love of our animals saves lives.

Stop by our shelter or donate via our Facebook or Instagram posts to make your $5 donation to provide critical care. Thank you for spreading some love to homeless animals in our community!
