Many people visit the Virginia Beach SPCA with their heart set on adopting a puppy or kitten. But senior pets make GREAT pets too!

The Virginia Beach SPCA is proud to be the recipient of a grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization in 2021. We were one of 77 animal welfare groups chosen to receive a grant to help provide second chances to senior dogs in our community. The Grey Muzzle Organization seeks to create “a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid.”
