Enriching lives & ending pet homelessness

Humane Wildlife

As a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the Winchester Area SPCA (WASPCA) supports humane solutions to wildlife-human conflicts.

The WASPCA animal shelter does not accept wildlife; we are strictly a shelter for domestic animals.

For advice about wildlife issues or concerns or for help with wildlife emergencies, please call the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center at 540-837-9000.

The Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) also has a hotline for information about human-wildlife interactions. They can be reached toll-free at 855-571-9003 or 800-237-5712 8:00 AM–4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
