VBSPCA, created in 1966, is a private nonprofit humane society that takes in almost 4,000 homeless domestic animals and nearly 2,200 wildlife animals each year, and is dedicated to finding homes for all adoptable animals. Through their medical clinic and mobile Neuter Scooter, they also provide spay/neuter and other veterinary services to the public. Their mission is to create a more humane and responsible community by increasing our capacity for compassion while decreasing our tolerance for cruelty.
The Virginia Beach SPCA (VBSPCA) has received grants from Grey Muzzle for medical care for adoptable dogs and their HOPE program. The HOPE program was launched in October 2008 to help pet owners with pet food and veterinary expenses so that owners could keep their pets instead of relinquishing them to a shelter. Grey Muzzle helps with expenses for senior dog owners, which includes over 75% of the applicants to the program.
