About the FSPCA
FSPCA History & Mission
The Fluvanna County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1989. Our life-saving mission is to rescue domestic animals in Fluvanna County, Virginia from cruelty, neglect, and abandonment and to place them in good, loving, permanent homes. As a small, rural, open-intake shelter, we have worked hard to achieve and maintain a No-Kill philosophy and you can learn more about what this means by visiting BestFriends.org.
Although we may share some similar goals as the larger national organizations such as the ASPCA, HSUS, and BFAS with regards to caring for animals in need, we are not directly affiliated with them and do not receive any financial support from these organizations apart from possible grants.
We receive our funding from:
- fundraising events
- Fluvanna County for providing the county’s public animal shelter services
Philanthropic support plays an essential role in ensuring that the animals at our shelter receive the care that they need and deserve. We are always striving to improve our operations and expand our services to the community. Our voluntary Board of Directors, committee members, volunteers, and staff are responsible for all FSPCA activities.
DONATIONS TO THE FLUVANNA SPCA ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE TO THE EXTENT ALLOWABLE BY LAW.
Your donations save lives!

Serving Fluvanna County
The Fluvanna SPCA proudly serves as the county’s public animal shelter and collaborates with the Sheriff’s Department Animal Control Officers to help provide care for the county’s stray and seized cats and dogs until they are reunited with their family or re-homed. For more information regarding Fluvanna County Animal Control please visit their website: https://www.fluvannacounty.org/sheriff/page/animal-control.
As resources allow, we also strive to provide low cost rabies vaccination clinics for county residents, and thanks to the generosity of donors, we are also often able to assist in donating some dog and cat food to other local charities and food pantries.
We do not have a veterinarian on staff, so unfortunately we are unable to provide low-cost spay/neuter, routine vaccination and wellness services to community members’ pets, but we do have a list of suggested clinics that offer these services under our “Veterinary Resources” tab at the top of this page. If you were to come across a stray cat or dog in Fluvanna County in need of more urgent medical attention and need assistance getting them care, please contact the Sheriff’s Department Animal Control Officer for further assistance: (434) 589-8211.
