Compassion in the Community | March 2021

We’re so lucky to have a supportive and compassionate community. In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, we’re sharing a few ideas of how you can bring good luck to the homeless animals of the Virginia Beach SPCA. Read on to learn more about this month’s initiative to provide lifesaving medical care for our animals, the local restaurant that wants you to dine for a cause, and more.

Change a Pet’s Luck – All Month Long
Donate $5 to the Miracle Medical Fund and make medical care possible for the homeless animals of the VBSPCA! Plus – for every Miracle Medical Fund donation of $5 or more, you get an “I support the VBSPCA” button. Donations can be made in person at the shelter or online. For online donations made via the VBSPCA website or social media pages, please visit our shelter and provide proof of your donation to a VBSPCA staff member to receive your button.

VBSPCA Membership Drive – Now through March 21st
Our goal is to welcome 100 new VBSPCA members by March 21st. For as little as $10 a month, you can provide loyal support that our animals depend on as they await their second chances. In addition to helping homeless animals, members receive exclusive perks like a member T-shirt, member magnet, discounts on adoptions and merchandise, and pet parent resources.
