Give Local 757

On May 10th, the Virginia Beach SPCA will join nonprofits across the region for
Give Local 757 – a 24 hour fundraiser dedicated to making Hampton Roads a better place.

The VBSPCA is raising funds for a special project that will benefits the people and pets of our community.  All funds raised will help expand a section of our property to create a tranquil area for our animal residents and guests to enjoy. Enrichment and outdoor time is extremely important for canines, especially those housed in a shelter, and this project will make our outdoor areas more vibrant and engaging for both our canine residents and visitors. The space will include a shaded pathway and garden area where our shelter dogs can be walked and enjoy time outdoors; a relaxing waiting area for our clinic clients; and an expanded and revitalized memorial garden where we can remember the animals and animal lovers who have impacted our lives. Our goal is to raise $20,000 to complete this project, and we need your help!

We have created donation levels to help cover the costs of the project while offering our supporters unique pathways to memorialize or honor the pets who have touched their lives.

  • All donors who make a contribution of $10 or more will be listed on a recognition sign at the entrance to the garden
  • All donors who make a contribution of $25 will have a flower planted in their honor
  • All donors who make a contribution of $50 will have a brick with a custom inscription placed in the path at the garden entry*
  • All donors who make a contribution of $100 will have custom cat or dog memorial marker placed in the garden*
  • All donors who make a contribution of $250 will have a handmade birdhouse placed in the garden. The birdhouses are made by our friends at Bluebird Beach Bungalows.
  • All donors who make a contribution of $500 will have a perennial planted in the garden, along with a custom memorial plaque*
  • All donors who make a contribution of $1000 will have a bench with a custom plaque placed in the garden*

*For inscriptions that are customizable, our team will reach out to you for information on your inscription.

Our tranquil space is designed to be a true celebration of the importance of companionship and compassion. The revitalization project will begin this July with an estimated completion date of October 1st, 2022, after which point all donors will be welcome to come see and experience what you helped bring to life! This project for the animals of yesterday, today, and tomorrow, and we thank you in advance for your support of the Virginia Beach SPCA.
