Our Mission: It is the mission of the Virginia Beach Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (VBSPCA) to create a more humane and responsible community by eliminating animal suffering while increasing human compassion.
Our Vision: We connect people and pets. As a trusted resource for our community, we create lasting adoptions, provide quality veterinary care, and inspire compassionate action through education and awareness. We are innovative, we are passionate, and we are committed. In partnership with our community, we end animal homelessness.
We provide shelter and care to approximately 3000 homeless companion animals each year. We implement every available option to ensure that healthy and treatable animals in our care have a pathway to adoption, while also providing community resources to help keep pets in homes.
