These Virginia Beach Animal Shelters Are Making a Difference

If you're eager to lend a helping hand, there are a number of local animal shelters that could always use some help! Read on to learn about Virginia Beach animal shelters that are making a profound impact on the community. 

Virginia Beach SPCA 

The Virginia Beach SPCA rescues thousands of animals every year. This animal shelter in Virginia Beach has been serving residents since 1966. Its mission is to "create a more humane and responsible community by eliminating animal suffering." Over 220 animals were adopted in December 2020 alone. The Virginia Beach SPCA is also one of the country's only shelters equipped to treat injured wildlife onsite. To help, the SPCA accepts online donations in any amount. The money pays for shelter, education programs, and more. 

Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center 

The Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center enforces local animal laws while finding homes for unwanted pets. It also offers public education on responsible pet ownership. To help, consider shopping from the center's Amazon Wish List. Your order will ship direct, and requested items include treats and pet bed microwave heating pads.

Virginia Wild Horse Rescue 

The volunteers at the Virginia Wild Horse Rescue protect and preserve the wild horses that roam into Virginia from North Carolina. These horses are descendants of the Colonial Spanish Mustangs that have roamed there since the early 1500s. Several of the horses now live on a rescue farm. They enjoy a comfortable place to stay and some TLC. To support the rescue, shop from its online store. Items include t-shirts, children's books, and hand-painted wine glasses.
