CASPCA to Aid in Hurricane Harvey Animal Relief Efforts

In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, a team of four staff members from the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA will be traveling to BARC, the City of Houston’s only municipal shelter, to transport displaced and abandoned animals back to the CASPCA for veterinary care and adoption.

To make space for the homeless animals we’re transferring in from Houston, we are having a “Clear the Shelter” adoption event this Saturday, September 2nd through Monday September 4th. All adoption fees will be waived.

During this time, we will have a higher demand for resources, and in addition to monetary assistance, welcome your donation of towels, newspapers, laundry detergent, and yoga mats. We are also collecting donations of pet food and supplies for the animals at the BARC animal shelter that we will deliver upon arrival.




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.
