Microchip and Rabies Clinic Sunday August 6th

The next Microchip and Rabies Clinic is this Sunday, August 6th from 12pm-4pm!

 DID YOU KNOW? One in three pets become lost in their lifetime. Without identification, 90% never return home.

Returning lost pets to their owners is an important part of the CASPCA’s life-saving mission. That’s why the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA offers walk-in hours for your pet to receive a rabies vaccine or microchip.  NO APPOINTMENT REQUIRED. All cats must be in carriers and all dogs must be on leashes.

The Compassionate Care-A-Van is Here!

The Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA is pleased to announce the arrival of the much anticipated Compassionate Care-A-Van, which was made possible thanks to a $73,500 challenge grant by the Perry Foundation. The other half of the cost for the Compassionate Care-A-Van was raised by generous donors.

  • The Compassionate Care-A-Van enables the CASPCA to provide basic care to pets in underserved areas of our community, where families have difficulty accessing and affording care for their pets. The Compassionate Care-A-Van can transport animals back to our clinic for procedures, including spaying/neutering. We have seen first-hand the positive impact of spaying/neutering animals to prevent unwanted litters. We will also provide services beyond spay/neuter such as wound care, mass removals, and dental procedures.
  • We will assist neighboring shelters in an effort to increase their live release rates, thereby reducing unnecessary euthanasia in our region. Shelter staff have already begun to use the Compassionate Care-a-Van to transport other shelter’s pets to our clinic for spay/neuter surgeries and other medical treatments.
  • Our goal is to be a leader in the region and state by targeting designated shelters with high euthanasia rates. We have utilized the Compassionate Care-A-Van to transfer in pets from these overcrowded shelters to give them a better chance at finding new homes.
  • In addition to increasing awareness throughout the community, the Compassionate Care-A-Van also will help shelter animals get adopted faster, as the unit will make it easier for staff to transport animals to and from events in our area. The ability to showcase our adoptable pets in this state-of- the-art unit will spread awareness of our shelter services and programs in addition to reaching adopters who may not have otherwise visited our shelter.
