The holiday season is upon us and 20 community businesses and locations have graciously donated space for us to display our Angel Trees. The Angel Trees will be on display from November 17th through December 31st. Each tree is decorated with the photo and holiday wish of a dog or cat currently in our shelter waiting for their forever homes!
You can choose an angel off the tree and either purchase the wished for item or donate the funds necessary for us to purchase it ourselves. Please see below for a list of Angel Tree locations!
This is an important time of year for shelters and rescue organizations as we prepare for the coming year! Our community’s generosity at this time helps us to begin a new calendar better equipped to love and care for the nearly 400 animals we have in our shelter daily.
We will also be having our annual Open House on Saturday, December 6 and Sunday, December 7 from
11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Whether you are a regular SPCA visitor or a first timer, we encourage you to come see the shelter and meet all the wonderful dogs and cats awaiting adoption! Light refreshments and holiday goodies will be served. We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces!

We look forward to seeing all the neat, creative, beautiful crafts and items at this years Bazaar and we are sure all the animals here at the Fredericksburg SPCA will appreciate all the effort of both the vendors and the shoppers in helping make shelter life a little brighter until they find their forever homes!
Some cats have been with us for at least a year, some two years and some even longer. And, they are still waiting for their second chance. We have reduced the adoption fee on these cats. Won’t you please consider one of these beautiful pets for your furr-ever companion? Learn more.
Cats and dogs in our care stay with us until they find a home. On a daily basis, we care for approximately 220 cats and 100 dogs so you can imagine how much it costs just to feed that many mouths each day. In addition, we must pay for shelter and we also provide medical care, socialization and most of all LOVE! Please become a sponsor to one of these animals in need of your help. Learn more about how you can sponsor an animal.
