A Round of Appaws for Critter Ball 2016!

Thank you, friends and supporters!

On Friday, Oct. 14, hundreds of animal lovers came together for a night of dancing, bidding and delicious cuisine to celebrate our 10-year milestone as a No Kill community at Castle Hill Cider in Keswick.

The 2016 Critter Ball was another huge success for the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA, raising more than $230,000 in net proceeds to benefit the animals at the shelter! Terrific live and silent auctions featured exciting packages and key initiatives, including our art camp and spay/neuter appeals. Attendees also supported our Compassionate Care-A-Van, a mobile unit we are in the process of purchasing that will help underserved populations in need of pet care in our community. To top off the night, guests grooved to Motown performers Kustom Made, and a $3,500 gift card to Keller & George Jewelers was raffled to a lucky winner!

Help us Get on the Move!

We’ve made progress … 

but it’s time to kick this 

campaign into hyperdrive.

The CASPCA has launched a campaign to purchase a state-of-the-art mobile unit!

The Perry Foundation has awarded us a challenge grant to purchase the Compassionate Care-A-Van, but there’s just one catch—for the foundation to give the shelter the $73,500 that would cover half the cost of the mobile unit, the CASPCA needs to raise the other half.

By keeping animals with their families, the Compassionate Care-A-Van will make a difference in our community.
