Compassion in the Community | April 2024

April is a big month for the Virginia Beach SPCA! We hope you’ll join us for the Wags and Whiskers Gala, our biggest fundraising event of the year. However, there are plenty of ways to have a tail-waggin’ good time and support the VBSPCA this month. Here’s a look at everything that’s going on in April.

Little Learners – TCC/Joint Use Library – April 19th
Join the VBSPCA for its newest Humane Education offering, Little Learners. Children ages 3-5 and their caregivers are invited to join us at the TCC/Joint Use Library on Friday, April 19th from 10:00am to 10:45am to learn kindness, compassion, and empathy through stories and activities. Participants will also meet a small animal. A donation of $5 is suggested to attend with all proceeds going back to our shelter. Click here to learn more and to register.

2024 VBSPCA Wags and Whiskers Gala – April 27th
Procrastinators beware! Wednesday, March 27th is the final day to purchase your tickets to the 2024 VBSPCA Wags and Whiskers Gala before prices increase.
