Virginia Beach SPCA

Description: 

Life just isn’t complete without that special furry little someone in it. No, we aren’t talking about your husband! Many studies have shown pets like cats and dogs can actually help reduce your stress level and may even reduce your blood pressure. If you are in the Virginia Beach area then it is time to head over to the Virginia Beach SPCA and pick out a new friend!

You may be wondering why you shouldn’t just pick up a new puppy at the pet shop in the mall. First of all, the Virginia Beach SPCA is a non-profit organization founded to help stop cruelty to animals and give shelter to homeless and often abandoned pets. They offer educational programs and provide visits by well-behaved pets to nursing homes and hospitals to brighten people’s days. Knowing the facts about the SPCA can certainly help you understand why it is a good idea to get your furry new friend from them rather than getting a pet that has been bred and sold in a store. Getting a pet from the SPCA is a happy ending to an often tragic story.

The Virginia Beach SPCA also never turns away an animal. They accept every animal that is brought to them, including wild animals. All those cats and dogs need good homes and someone to love and this is where you come in! Picking out that new furry companion from the SPCA is a good deed, as any money you pay goes right back into helping more animals at the shelter. A good deed for a furry friend in need!

You will also be getting a good deal on your new pet as all pets adopted from the Virginia Beach SPCA get the full treatment before they are sent to their new homes. Pets are spayed or neutered, given all their needed shots and de-wormed. These animals also have their nails trimmed, ears cleaned, and are micro chipped for safety!

If a cat or dog is not what you are looking for, then the SPCA is still your place to be, since there are also birds, bunnies, rats and many more animals available at any given time. Even if you have all the pets you can handle you can still do a good deed by making a much-needed donation to the Virginia Beach SPCA and helping out the pets that have not been placed in homes yet.

If you are looking for a pooch to take running on the beaches or the perfect feline to bask in the sun on your porch, the SPCA is sure to have your match!
