Join us for the 5th Annual bow-WOW-walk, a K-9 2.5K to support the animals and lifesaving programs of the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. The walk and festival is sure to delight both two-legged and four-legged fun-seekers alike. The walk will begin at IX Art Park and wind through Charlottesville’s historic downtown mall before returning to IX Art Park for a post-walk festival sure to WOW our doggie friends! The festival will feature human and doggie entertainment, canine competition, treats for pups, and a pack of animal-friendly sponsors.
The walk will take place on Saturday, April 7th at IX Art Park in Charlottesville followed by a post walk festival at IX Art Park. The festival will feature doggie and human entertainment, canine competitions, treats for pups and a pack of animal friendly sponsor booths.

We hope you have enjoyed the stories we have selected for the 12 Saves of Christmas, about a few of the animals saved by the CASPCA this year. These 12 represent only a small fraction of the thousands of animals we provide lifesaving care to and save each year. These stories all have a happy ending because of the tireless efforts of our staff and the generosity of supporters like you!

Update: Rollie wants to thank all of her new friends and supporters for contributing the $4000 needed for her surgery!
My name is Rollie and I am a one-year-old German Shepherd mix. I have had a very hard life thus far! I was displaced in Houston after Hurricane Harvey and lived for a while in an arena with a lot of other animals. Some very nice people with Best Friends Animal Society transferred me and a group of dogs, who all really needed a lot of medical attention, to the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. Since arriving, I have been undergoing treatments for skin infections and heartworms.
The CASPCA veterinary staff noted that I have trouble walking like other dogs. After examining my X-rays, it was determined that my left hip is very abnormal, most likely due to a traumatic injury. It is painful for me to walk and difficult for me to stand normally. I desperately need corrective hip surgery! Until I have this surgery, I am resting, taking pain medication, and receiving lots of love from the wonderful staff at the CASPCA. It is my Christmas wish to be able to walk, run, and play like other pups!
PLEASE HELP THE CASPCA RAISE THE $4,000 NEEDED FOR MY MEDICAL TREATMENTS AND HIP SURGERY.
Help Rollie Receive the Corrective Hip Surgery She Needs!
