Compassion in the Community – March

Spring is almost here!  As the weather gets warmer, we find more opportunities to be out in the community celebrating and promoting our mission. Check out our Spring lineup of fun and family-friendly events, some that even your four-legged friends can enjoy.

Whole Foods – All month long

Bring your reusable bags to Whole Foods during the month of February, and the VBSPCA will receive 5 cents for every bag you use! This helps both the animals in our shelter and the wild animals who will benefit from less plastic bags out there in the world. 

Waggin’ Wednesday @ O’Conner Brewing – March 11th from 5:30-8:30pm 

Enjoy mission-centered drinks and tail-waggin good time at O’Connor Brewing. If you bring an item off of our wish list, you will receive 25% off of your tab! The VBSPCA will also have some awesome retail items for sale such as dog and cat toys and other great resources for pets. 

Shamrock Marathon @ the Virginia Beach Oceanfront – March 22nd | CANCELLED

The VBSPCA will be wishing you the luck of the Irish during the Shamrock Marathon! There will be encouragement to runners throughout the race with funny signs, adoptable dogs to greet, and photo opportunities during quick breaks from the run! 

Wags & Whiskers Southern Charm Gala @ The Cavalier Hotel — March 28th from 7-11pm | POSTPONED

The Wags & Whiskers Gala is an annual event celebrating the mission and the animals of the Virginia Beach SPCA. This year’s theme is Southern Charm and fittingly, the event takes place at the historic and elegant Cavalier Hotel. Friends and family of the VBSPCA will gather to toast the animals and help to raise the much needed funds to support our work of connecting animals and humans throughout Hampton Roads. This is a night to remember those that need us most- meet our animals, and enjoy fine food and dancing. Click here to purchase your tickets today.
