Help Shelter Pets Shine – All Month Long
Throughout the month of August, we want to shine a light on the homeless animals of the VBSPCA as they wait to find loving homes. For every donation of $5 or more, we will post a sun with your name on it in our shelter to showcase how much our community cares. Stop by our shelter to make your $5 donation, which will benefit the VBSPCA Miracle Medical Fund. Thank you for helping our shelter pets shine!
