VBSPCA Clinic Policy Update

Beginning August 15, 2022, the Virginia Beach SPCA will reinstate its income cap for all veterinary clinic services except spay/neuter services. The income requirement was modified in March 2020 in an effort to ensure veterinary care was accessible to those who were financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the overwhelming need for veterinary services in Hampton Roads, we have made the decision to reinstate our policy to ensure that we are serving those most in need of our services.

The income cap will not impact existing clients of the VBSPCA Clinic. Please feel free to schedule appointments and continue your pet’s care at the clinic, regardless of income.

For new clients of the VBSPCA Clinic and Walk-In Vaccine Clinics:

  • Low cost veterinary services and walk-in vaccine clinics are offered for households with an annual income of $65,000 or less. You will be asked to provide proof of income by presenting your most recent tax return form before services are provided. If you are unable to present a tax return form or your income has significantly changed since your most recent filing, please bring in an alternative form of documentation. The income cap is waived for active duty military members, reservists and their dependents as well as first responders.
  • The income cap does not apply to spay/neuter services or our Vaccine Clinics. This includes services both at the VBSPCA Clinic and on the VBSPCA Neuter Scooter. We offer these services without restriction in an effort to reduce the homeless animal population in our community.
