Compassion in the Community | December 2022

The holiday season is here, so don’t forget the animals as you shop and celebrate! Here’s a look at how you can support the animals of the VBSPCA during the month of December.

Winter Art Walk at London Bridge Nursery – December 3rd
Stop by and see us at London Bridge Nursery’s Winter Art Walk on December 3rd! We’ll have adoptable animals and pet retail for sale from 11:00am-2:00pm. We’ll also be collecting items from our Wish List.

Gifts that Give Back – All Month Long
Tis the season for giving, and we have plenty of gifts that give back to the animals of the VBSPCA! From gift cards to pet retail items to donation acknowledgements to include in your greeting cards, there is something for every animal lover and pet on your shopping list! Click here to learn more.

Drop off an Item from Our Wish List – All Month Long
As we enter into the season of giving, we wanted to share our updated Wish List. We are lucky that so many people drop off donations at our shelter during the holiday season, so we wanted to make it easy to see what we need to take care of our animals as well as things we cannot accept. Please click here to check out our updated Wish List and share it with others.
