Our History

In late 2004, the Prince William SPCA had two volunteers and the fundraising efforts were limited to dog biscuit bake sales netting less than $100 per event. Today, the PWSPCA has more than 200 volunteers and a robust donor base that enables the organization to take on large projects. In less than a decade, the Prince William SPCA has created the area’s only large-scale, low-cost spay/neuter program, opened a pet food pantry, developed a humane education program in elementary schools, partnered with the local shelters on adoption programs, hosted special events attracting 1,200+ people, established a scholarship program for local college students and most recently, secured a $150,000 grant for a mobile adoption van.

Our volunteers were instrumental in establishing the Prince William County Animal Advisory Committee, a citizen-run group appointed by the Board of County Supervisors. The Prince William SPCA has become the voice of animals in the region. Our knowledgeable board members and volunteers dedicate themselves to improving the lives of companion animals and look forward to embarking on new projects in the years to come.
