The Charlottesville Albemarle Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (CASPCA, or the SPCA) is the area's primary animal shelter, the local arm of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The SPCA is a no-kill shelter. [2]

The SPCA is supported by private donations as well as funding from Charlottesville and Albemarle County. The SPCA shelter has been the official "pound" for the city since 1956. [3]

In 2020, the SPCA set a one-year adoption record with 3,758 adoptions. [4]

For years, the SPCA held a semi-annual rummage sale in order to raise funds. In 2007, they opened a permanent store called The Rummage Store. [5]
