Compassion in the Community — September

September has arrived, and with it come new ways to support the animals of the Virginia Beach SPCA!  We just launched our 365 Days of Compassion fundraiser, sweet treats await at Dairy Queen, and we’ve got a great reading challenge in store for kids. Information on these activities and more can be found below, and we thank you for supporting the animals of the VBSPCA!  

365 Days of Compassion

Every single day of the year, animals need your help. The Virginia Beach SPCA’s 365 Days of Compassion Fundraiser recognizes this never-ending need for care and invites you to become part of our lifesaving mission. The fundraiser starts September 1st and lasts through September 30th, so act now to make a difference! The VBSPCA 365 Days of Compassion Fundraiser is an opportunity for our passionate community to come together in support of the animals, 365 days of the year. Click here to sponsor a day! 

Pup Cup Fundraiser

Our friends at Dairy Queen have a sweet deal going on all month long! All proceeds from Pup Cup sales in the month of September will be split between local shelters in the Hampton Roads area. Take your pup to get a treat while also helping the homeless animals in your community.

Fall Reading Challenge 

We’re calling all children to participate in a fun reading challenge to foster the joy of books while also learning more about animals and the mission of the Virginia Beach SPCA. We’ve put together an interactive worksheet with three different reading challenges plus some educational bookmarks to instill character values in our young animal lovers (who will be tomorrow’s animal heroes! ) Plus, for each challenge completed, readers win prizes! Click here for more information and  to print out the challenge worksheet. 

Coming Up in October

Mutt Masquerade Goes Virtual

Participants can look forward to a virtual 5k, a virtual 1 miler, and a virtual costume contest, all to take place between October 25th and 31st. Get your costumes prepped, stretch out your legs, and get ready for a fun event that will help out the homeless animals of Hampton Roads.

All Year Long – Sustainable Support

You can help homeless animals anytime you buy groceries at Kroger! Simply sign up, 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.

Host a fundraiser through Bonfire

Create a t-shirt to benefit the animals of the VBSPCA! Bonfire makes it easy – upload your design, select the VBSPCA as the nonprofit, and they take it from there. This is a great way to support the animals while also putting some style out there in the community. Learn more here.
