July Compassion in the Community

Summer is in full swing and we have plenty of exciting things happening during this month! You can support the animals of the VBSPCA by running a 5k, buying a shirt to show your Bayfront community pride or getting an insurance quote. We are also thrilled to announce the start of our in-shelter reading program! You can check out a full list of all activities for the month of July below.

Pick up Your Free Pet Emergency Decal – All month long

Stop by the VBSPCA to pick up your FREE Emergency Pet Decal. You can place this on your door or window to alert first responders and rescue teams that there are pets inside the home.

Dog Days of Summer J & A Racing – All month long

June is a wrap, but we’ve still got two months left in the Dog Days of Summer Virtual Race Series! Our friends at j&a racing have put together 5k races in June, July, and August, and there is even a Mutt Mile just for kids. The animals receive $1 from every registration, so sign up today!

Quotes For Good Fundraiser – All month long

For every quote or referral during the month of July, Cooksey Insurance Agency will be donating $5 to the VBSPCA! They will also be donating $1 for every share of their fundraising post on Facebook. We are so grateful for their support of the animals.

A Tale For Two – Every Monday starting July 13th

A Tale for Two is an extension of our Listening Ears Program which pairs a young reader with an animal to make the experience of reading more fun. By bringing the readers to our shelter, our adoptable cats and dogs get to benefit from the positive presence of a child, boosting confidence in both the pet and the person. This in-shelter reading program is open to youth ages 6-13, and visits take place on Monday afternoons between 4pm and 5pm. Visits must be scheduled in advance, and children are invited to bring their own books or they can choose from the VBSPCA library. Click here to schedule your visit.

Bayfront Living T-Shirt Fundraiser – All month long

Grab a limited edition Bayfront Living t-shirt or sweatshirt to show your pride of where you live while supporting our shelter! The shirts will only be available for a limited time and 100% of the proceeds from the campaign benefit the Virginia Beach SPCA. Click here to order one today.

International Day of Friendship – July 30th

The International Day of Friendship is July 30th and the VBSPCA would like to celebrate all the furry friends that make our community better! We will be posting adoption stories on our social media pages and are challenging community members to post a picture with their pets using the hashtag #VBSPCAfurryfriends.

Christmas in July – July 7th-31st

We’re spreading a little holiday spirit this month with a sale! All VBSPCA apparel and select pet products are discounted by 25% ALL MONTH LONG. This is a great time to pick up some VBSPCA swag, some treats and toys for our furry friends, and maybe even some holiday cards for those who like to plan ahead.
