Welcome to the Outer Banks SPCA

The Outer Banks SPCA’s goal is to save the lives of all healthy, treatable, and manageable dogs and cats in our community. Our organization offers multiple low-cost programs to assist with rabies vaccines and spay and neuter assistance. We strive to educate all our potential adopters and implement progressive animal adoption programs in our ongoing effort to save lives.

The Donna Hanna-Walker Fund

Donna-Hanna-Walker was born in Charleston, WV on December 10, 1948. She refused to live a tiny life and wished instead to live a large one. She began by volunteering with under privileged children while getting a college education. Donna was a leader throughout her professional career yet always took time for children and animals which were her passion.

Donna and her soulmate Bruce traveled the world together collecting memories and touching lives, after which they chose the beautiful Outer Banks to call home.

Sadly, on May 25th, 2021, this amazing woman passed away. She loved animals and in her memory a fund named “The Donna Hanna-Walker Fund” has been established by her soulmate Bruce.

This fund will help with abandoned pets’ adoption fees and medical expenses, thereby furthering Donna’s mission to help the animals and community of Dare County, NC.

Donations can be made in her honor to the Outer Banks SPCA, PO Box 2477, Manteo, NC, 27954. Please make checks payable to the Outer Banks SPCA, in memory of Donna Walker.
