Compassion in the Community | September 2022

Giving back to the homeless animals of the Virginia Beach SPCA is as easy as getting a cool treat for your pup or attending a fun fall event! Here’s a look at how our community is giving back in September.

Dairy Queen Pup Cups – All Month Long
Treat your pup and shelter animals at the same time! During the month of September, Mid Atlantic Dairy Queen owned locations will be donating all proceeds from Pup Cup sales to local animal shelters including the VBSPCA. The funds will be split evenly between four local shelters. Click here to learn more and see the list of the 14 participating Dairy Queen locations.
