The Prince William SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) was established to benefit the animals of the greater Prince William County, Virginia, area. This all-volunteer organization is dedicated to protecting domestic animals from cruelty, neglect, and abandonment, and stopping the unnecessary overpopulation of companion animals.
SPCA's goal is to end the killing of adoptable cats and dogs in Prince William County by promoting and supporting programs involving mutually beneficial relations between people and companion animals.
The Prince William SPCA is not an animal shelter and does not take in animals. However, through its "Friends of the Shelter" program, we help promote the pets at the local shelters. If you are looking for an animal to adopt, please consider one of the many pets at the shelters. Residents of Prince William County and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park are served by two area shelters, the Prince William County Animal Shelter and the Manassas City Animal Adoption Center.
The Manassas Adoption Center is a temporary home for the abandoned, unwanted, stray, and homeless animals found in the City of Manassas. Our goal is to reunite stray pets with their owners and place unwanted animals in loving homes with pet owners that are educated and responsible. The Animal Control Services Division maintains the health, safety, and welfare of the community through timely response to citizen calls for service and through proactive measures to control the spread of rabies; achieves compliance of the animal care and control ordinances through education and enhanced enforcement efforts.
The City's Animal Control Services Division also strives to assist citizens with the proper tools and information to become more responsible pet owners. Animal Control Officers (ACO's) respond to investigate reports of animal abuse, neglect, nuisance animals, dangerous animals, and bites involving domestic animals and wildlife.
The SPCA encourage partnerships with the veterinary industry, the local business community, county government officials and other nonprofits that share in our mission. In working with these groups, we hope to make the greater Prince William region a better place for precious companion animals. Here's a link to their site: PWSPCA.
