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. Stop by our shelter or donate via our social media posts to make your $5 donation.

Throughout the month of February, Signature Management Corporation will be collecting donations at all 10 of its properties. To participate, pick up an item from our Wish List and drop it off in the donation bins located in each property’s office.
