Prince William SPCA will host holiday pet photos on Sunday, December 8, 2019, from 4:00pm-7:00pm at the Lake Ridge Nursery.  We have moved the location this year due to the anticipated construction of the new Prince William County Animal Shelter.

This pet-friendly event is always popular and a way we give back to our very generous community who has supported us and the Prince William County Animal Shelter all year long.

The photos will be held indoors this year.  One pet photo per family is complimentary (donations appreciated). $5.00 for each additional photo.

Check out the photo album from last year:

Prince William SPCA is once again teaming up with Action in Community Through Service to provide safe and healthy food alternatives for pets this holiday season. Until November 9, we are collecting cat and dog food donations to be distributed to needy families through ACTS Operation Turkey program in November. Not only will this give the pets a special treat, but it also keeps Fido and Fluffy from indulging in food that can make them sick. Help us collect donations to support needy families in our community.

Start collecting now.  Drop off your donations on Saturday, November 9, at the McCoart Building from 11 AM – 2 PM.  Look for our volunteers.

Other Drop off locations (more to come):

Pet Food Drive – Operation Turkey – 2019 FLYER

In 2014, the Prince William SPCA celebrated our 10th year anniversary and kicked off an initiative to create public awareness for the need to build a new animal shelter in the county.

Throughout the past five years, our community has overwhelmingly voiced support to address the critically undersized and outdated facility built in the 1970s. We were elated when the Board of County Supervisors approved the new Prince William County Animal Shelter in 2015. We comprised in 2017 with “Option C” as an efficient yet not excessive building design. We waited patiently until the construction plan was released in Spring 2019. And now we continue to wait as the new animal shelter is once again delayed in bureaucratic red tape.

The Board of County Supervisors meets on Tuesday, October 8 with Citizens’ Time scheduled on the agenda at 2:00pm and 7:30pm. Be the voice for the animals and help finally move this project across the finish line!

If you are unable to speak at Citizens’ Time, please email the Supervisors at and let them know it’s time to deliver on their vote to build a new animal shelter!

In honor of “Check the Chip” day on August 15, we are thrilled to announce that we have hit a milestone in our microchip program at the Prince William County Animal Shelter. 10,000 microchips! Every animal adopted or redeemed from the shelter has received a complimentary microchip sponsored by Prince William SPCA. #checkthechip

*If your pet is microchipped, great! Now’s a good time to check that chip at any area veterinarian’s office. Animal shelters and Animal Control Officers have scanners as well. Check that chip to make sure information is up to date.

*If your pet isn’t microchipped, make an appointment today with your vet. Microchips are affordable and can mean the difference when a pet is lost or stolen.

Help Clear the Prince William County Animal Shelter on Saturday, August 17

Prince William SPCA’s Friends of the Shelter Program is sponsoring the event and adoption fees are waived. All animals adopted will receive a free spay/neuter, medical screening, behavior evaluation, vaccinations, microchip and a goodie bag. Help us find forever homes for these animals by making a donation and clearing the shelter 8/17.

Make a donation to support the event today!
