About Us

Fluvanna SPCA
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

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:

  • donations

  • grants

  • 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.
