Help us Help Them.
Donations that matter.
From routine services to reconstructive surgery, the Outer Banks SPCA is committed to providing quality care for all of our residents. Every year we face new challenges and as an open admission shelter we never quite know what those challenges will be.
Our dedication to compassionate animal welfare and progressive animal services does come at cost. Here at the Outer Banks SPCA we are dedicated to providing quality care to the animals in our care. The Outer Banks SPCA happily accepts monetary and in-kind donations. All donations go directly to the care of homeless and neglected animals and our programs such as spay/neuter, feeding and pet enrichment, etc.
We accept personal, cashier, and business checks, along with money orders and credit cards. You can mail or deliver donations to the shelter or do it NOW online.
Giving Levels - your gift means everything to our shelter
Shelter Improvement Fund
Rehabilitated in 1988, the Dare County Animal Shelter was formally a garage. Gifts to this fund provide for continued upkeep of our facility and will (one day) support renovation or replacement with a progressive facility that sets a new standard for animal care on the Outer Banks.
Gifts support medical care for seriously sick and injured animals during their stay at the Dare County Animal Shelter. Each year we assist animals suffering from fractures, infectious diseases, heartworms and life-threatening conditions.
Millions of dogs and cats are euthanized in U.S. shelters due to overpopulation and lack of resources and adopters. In response to the crisis, the SPCA, in collaboration with local veterinarians, provides subsidized spay/neuter for cats and dogs in their care.
The Outer Banks SPCA constantly seeks "furever homes" for the 50-100 cats and dogs in the shelter at any given time. Funds are put towards the adoption fee of any specific animal to ensure a successful adoption into a new family.
