In August of 2005, the SPCA Eastern Shore rededicated itself to our true mission- to provide a safe haven for animals in Accomack and Northampton Counties on Virginia's Eastern Shore. To find out more about who we are and the history of the Eastern Shore SPCA, see our About page.  This is truly a co-operative effort by people who care deeply about the welfare of pets in our community and we rely entirely on private donations

Support the Murphy's Fund

Murphy’s Fund was created so we would have money in place for extraordinary medical needs here at the shelter. Most of the money in this account has been used to treat dogs who are positive for heartworms, making it easier for those dogs to be adopted.  Read more about the Murphy's Fund in our Newsletter!.
