Compassion in the Community | May 2022

Spring has sprung, and our community is blooming with creative ideas to show compassion to the animals of the Virginia Beach SPCA. From a big day of giving here in Hampton Roads to a festival where you’re sure to meet great pups, here’s a look at some ways to have fun while giving back this month.

Give Local 757 – May 10th
