About Us

Our Shelter

Since 1963, the Peninsula SPCA has provided shelter and adoption services for the homeless pets of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson and York County. Now, in 2015, we have transitioned to be an Adoption Guarantee, or “no kill” animal shelter, allowing us to expand our services  to include adoption, humane education offerings to students and civic groups, and outreach programs to the citizens of our community.

We have placed over 45,000 animals into loving homes in the last decade and have returned thousands of stray animals to their owners.

Our Mission

The mission of the Peninsula SPCA is to find loving homes for every animal in our care, and to advocate for the humane treatment of all animals in our community.

Our Vision

The staff, volunteers and Directors of the Peninsula SPCA invite you to join us as we enter into our new era of being an Adoption Guarantee organization. In this role, we are committing to save all healthy and treatable animals under our care and sheltering them at our facility until we find new homes for them, no matter how long that takes.   More about our vision…
