Virginia Beach SPCA Adds New Satellite Adoption Center
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FEBRUARY 20, 2015
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – The Virginia Beach SPCA has opened a new home in The Breeden Company’s Providence Square Shopping Center in Virginia Beach, VA. At 11:00 AM this morning, Dia DuVernet - VBSPCA CEO and Barry Tomlin - The Breeden Company VP of Operations, were two of the individuals who cut the ribbon that marked the official opening of the new satellite location. The Ramon W. Breeden, Jr. Foundation has been a primary sponsor of the Virginia Beach SPCA for years and was a major contributor in helping the new endeavor come to life. Mr. Breeden is “an avid animal lover and has a deep passion for ensuring all animals are cared for,” Tomlin noted in his remarks.
According to DuVernet, the new Pet Supplies and Adoption Center aims to appeal to individuals who may not ordinarily adopt. After doing extensive research on similar satellite animal centers across the country, she explained that research has shown satellite adoption sites are particularly beneficial for cat adoptions.
So far, so good. Since last weekend’s “Soft Opening”, 65 animals have already been adopted in what is typically the slowest month of the year. Many of their customers have indeed been first-time adopters but repeat adopters have helped add to that number as well. Tomlin stated that he came to the soft opening and “went home with two more dogs myself.”
The new center is located 941 Providence Square Center, Suite 983 in Virginia Beach, VA. Adoptable pets are listed on the Virginia Beach SPCA’s website.
