Compassion in the Community | May 2023

Spring has sprung, and our community is blooming with creative ways to show compassion to the animals of the Virginia Beach SPCA. Here’s a look at how we’re connecting with the community this month.

Poochella Adoption Event – May 13th
Poochella, PETA’s multi-shelter adoption event, is back on Saturday, May 13th from 11:00am to 2:00pm at Bea Arthur Dog Park. You’re sure to find your new best friend with so many adoptable shelter pups in attendance, including some from the VBSPCA! Stop by to meet pooches who are looking for their forever homes.

Change for Change Youth Coin Challenge – All Summer Long
The VBSPCA’s youth coin challenge, Change For Change, returns! Stop by the shelter and pick up a change canister anytime between now and June 1st so your child can collect change for the animals all summer long. Then bring your canister back to the shelter by August 31st – whoever collects the most money will win a VBSPCA Swag Bag! Click here for more details.
