Empty the Shelters Event

Why We Love Empty the Shelters!

This lifesaving reduced-fee adoption event is a Win-Win-Win:

  • Adopters win because BPF pays the adoption fees allowing them to take home a fully vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered pet who is ready to be loved for $50 or less (much more affordable than purchasing a pet!)
  • Shelters win because the pets they care about get a second chance when adoption fees are covered by BISSELL Pet Foundation.
  • And, most importantly, every pet wins by finding a loving home!

This free event is intended to promote community and brighten the holidays in the Charlottesville area. Tinsel Trail will be open from November 26, 2022 – January 2, 2023. Trees will be illuminated for all to enjoy daily from dusk until midnight!

Our animals say “Thank You!”

We have recently learned about ways Capital One Shopping can help you find even more savings on your items. This is a free tool that compares prices among various retailers to ensure that you are getting the best deal possible while supporting the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA at the same time!

LIVE Kitty Cam of Krabby Patty With No Pickles!

Despite Krabby Patty’s shelter name, he’s very friendly and happy! He absolutely loves to play and particularly enjoys playing with his feather wand toys, but he’s also happy chasing balls and playing hide and seek. Come in and meet this special boy!

Volunteer with us!

The Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA is a fun and rewarding place to spend your time. Help the animals enjoy their time at the shelter while they wait for their forever homes. We currently need volunteers to clean cat cages and dogs kennels, greet guests in the lobby, process applications, prepare for surgery, assist with canine playgroups, and build foster kits.
