Compassion in the Community: November

Fall has finally arrived! While you’re getting out your jackets and boots, make sure to support the Virginia Beach SPCA’s mission of compassion in the community. There are lots of ways to help the animals this November, including beer tasting, holiday shopping, fundraisers, and adoption events!

November 9th-11th: The Lemon Cabana
Get some of your holiday shopping taken care of with the selection of gifts and home decor at The Lemon Cabana. From November 9th through the 11th, 10% off sales will be donated to the Virginia Beach SPCA!

November 9th-11th: PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend
Both the PetSmart Luv-A-Pet Centers on Virginia Beach Boulevard and on Dam Neck house adoptable VBSPCA cats and some small animals. During their adoption weekend, some of our adoptable canine companions will be there as well on Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 2pm. Stop by and meet your new best friend!

Sunday, November 11th: Pints for Pups
Bring your best furry friend to Commonwealth Brewing Co. from 1pm to 4pm for an afternoon of craft beer, live music, and awesome eats from Bodacious Pizza, Flying Pig Malbon’s BBQ and Pittsburgh’s Best food trucks. Plus, you can save by buying your tickets in advance! Each ticket purchased includes 2 beer tickets and all proceeds benefit the VBSPCA. We will have adoptable dogs there too! Click here for more information.

Plus, meet adoptable animals and take a spin on our Whisker Wheel to win some prizes!  Be prepared for unconditional love and great deals!

Tuesday, November 27th: Giving Tuesday
This November 27th, join the movement and give the gift of compassion by supporting the VBSPCA on Giving Tuesday by making a donation at www.vbspcadonations.com/givingtuesday. You can give a general donation, help cover the cost of an animal’s medical treatment, or give to specific programs like Humane Education or Wildlife. Have a difficult person to shop for? Make a donation in honor of a loved one, coworker, friend, or anyone else on your list. Find out all the ways you can give on our website.

And, as always, be sure to support the Virginia Beach SPCA by shopping at Second Chance Thrift on Shore Drive, voted the best thrift store in the state of Virginia in InsideBusiness.com. A portion of all sales at Second Chance Thrift are donated to the VBSPCA!

You can also support the Virginia Beach SPCA by shopping at Kroger. All you have to do is sign up to participate, swipe your Plus Card when you shop, and a portion of the sale will be donated back to the VBSPCA! Sign up to participate here.

The Virginia Beach SPCA is incredibly grateful for the continued support from our local community. If you are interested in hosting a fundraiser or donation drive in support of the VBSPCA, please contact Jessica Traynor at jessica.traynor@vbspca.com.
