YOUR GRACIOUS CONTRIBUTION HELPS SUPPORT IN MANY WAYS
From routine services like spaying/neutering 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. Your donation will help these animals thrive! Thank you so much for your desire to help us care for the hundreds of animals in need that come through our door every year. Because of the generous support from incredible donors like you, we can keep up with our mission to provide the best care for the homeless cats, dogs, and other small and wild animals in the OBX community.

OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT
Gifts or Memorials
Finding the perfect gift for an animal you love just got easier! Give a monetary donation to the Outer Banks SPCA and the gift recipient will receive a notification of the special donation in his/her name. Donations can also be made in memory of a loved one or pet that has passed away.
The Outer Banks SPCA invites you to honor your pet and support the SPCA with a Commemorative Pet Tile.
Imprinted with a beloved pet’s color photo and name, commemorative tiles are permanently installed on the interior walls of our Dare County Animal Shelter, and serve as an everlasting tribute to the love and bond between animals and their families. Thousands of visitors each year see these furry faces decorating our walls and many will visit their own personal tile again and again to remember a special pet.
A $500 donation receives an 8” x 8” tile and $250 donation receives a 4” x 4” tile. All donations help the Outer Banks SPCA to find all adoptable animals’ homes. Learn more here.
Check with your employer’s Human Resources or Community Relations department to see if the company will match gifts for employee contributions or volunteer hours. This is a very easy way to give back to the animals!

We are grateful for your donation! However, there are some items that we cannot use because of our sanitation standards.

Please check out other local non-profits that could benefit from these items.
