Gifts That Give Back

Tis the season to support the animals! If you have pet lovers in your circle of family and friends, consider giving gifts that give back to the animals of the VBSPCA. 

  • Include some extra love in your holiday cards by making a donation in someone’s honor.  Stop by the shelter, make a donation, and receive a holiday gift acknowledgment to put inside your greeting card. This is a great way to share compassion while celebrating the joy of the season. There is no fee for the acknowledgement card.
  • Purchase pet toys or VBSPCA apparel as gifts for friends and family. The VBSPCA has a great retail store located inside the shelter that carries a variety of different gifts for both your favorite animals and humans! Plus, all retail proceeds go directly back to the animals of the VBSPCA. 
  • Purchase a VBSPCA gift card that can be used for adoption fees or retail items. Give the gift of compassion with a VBSPCA gift card! Gift cards can be used for retail purchases and adoption fees, however all adoption policies and procedures still apply.
  • Sponsor a kennel, condo, or cabin in someone’s name. These very important sponsorships contribute to the cost of shelter and care for shelter animals providing a unique opportunity to directly support animals in need. A personalized plaque will be placed on your chosen kennel, condo, or cabin for an entire year, and sponsors receive quarterly updates on the animals who have benefitted from your kindness. Gifting a sponsorship to a loved one is a great way to show you care. To learn more, click here.
