Refuge for Animals

CASPCA is dedicated to providing crucial animal welfare services to residents of Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and surrounding areas. Our commitment is rooted in safe, socially conscious principles to ensure public safety and health. We strive to place all healthy, behaviorally sound animals into homes and actively support partners in achieving their life-saving initiatives. We prioritize partnerships with our community, local shelters, and rescue organizations, aiming to maximize our impact not only locally but within the broader animal welfare community.

CASPCA serves as a refuge for animals in our community who are lost, sick, injured, and in danger as a result of abuse or neglect. It’s essential to recognize that animal shelters, CASPCA included, are designed as temporary refuges, and have physical and resource limitations in providing extended sanctuary to behaviorally compromised animals. We maintain a commitment to the safety of people and other animals by not reintroducing animals with aggressive behaviors into our community.
