*Butterfly Society of Virginia
The Society became more fully digitized in Fall 2011, when it went on Facebook and Twitter. It further was hurtled into the electronic age in Winter 2014 when for the first time ever, credit cards were accepted for Society purchases. The Society will continue striving to expand on our goals of butterfly education, conservation, gardening and volunteering. Yearly butterfly events and plant sales continue to be in planning such as the early spring sale at the Francis Land House, in progress since 2012, as well as other educational programs and activities. There is much to look forward to for the many adults and children who have enjoyed and benefited from the activities of the Butterfly Society of Virginia.
Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center
The friends of Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center (formerly the Friends of Virginia Beach Animal Control) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit volunteer organization that is dedicated to helping the animals who find themselves in the care of Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center (the City of Virginia Beach municipal shelter). Our goal is to save the lives of all adoptable and treatable animals housed in the shelter. We count on the support of our community to help these animals by purchasing needed supplies, by covering veterinary expenses for sick/injured animals, and by advertising to help get the animals adopted. All donations are tax deductible and go directly to help the animals.
