Outer Banks SPCA "Special Funds" Donations

Outer Banks SPCA Dare County Animal Shelter

The Outer Banks SPCA has "Special Funds" for donations to help animals on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
When making donations this Holiday Season to the Outer Banks SPCA please note in your check memo if there is a fund that you wish to have your funds allocated too.

The Following are the Special Funds set up through the Outer Banks SPCA:

Medical Care Fund
Gifts support medical care for seriously sick & injured animals during their stay at the Dare County Animal Shelter. Each year we assist animals suffering from fractures, infectious deceases, heart worms, and life threatening conditions.

Spay/Neuter Fund
Millions of dogs & cats are euthanized in United States animal shelters each year due to overpopulation and lack of resources and adopters. In response to the crisis, the Outer Banks SPCA , in collaboration with local veterinarians, provides subsidized spay/neuter for cats and dogs in their care.

Adoption Fund
The Outer Banks SPCA constantly sees "forever homes" for the 25-50 dogs & cats in the Shelter at any given time. Funds help defray cost of medical evaluations, food, and the work of the Shelter Staff with animals and adopters to ensure a successful transition into the family.

Shelter Improvement Fund
Rehabilitated in 1988, the Dare County Animal Shelter was formerly a garage. Gifts to this fund provide for continued upkeep on this aging facility and will one day help support renovation or replacement with a progressive facility that sets the standard for animal care on the Outer Banks.

Community Education Fund
The Outer Banks SPCA provides educational publications, seminars, presentations, and workshops in local schools and for the general public to promote a humane environment for animals, residents and visitors.
