Coins for Community - Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center

Coins for Community

The mission of the Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center is to balance the health, safety and welfare needs of the people and animals in our City.

Their mission is accomplished by working with the citizens and other animal welfare organizations, by enforcing the domestic animal laws of the Commonwealth and the City, providing educational programs and humanely providing care, nourishment and a safe environment for the unwanted, stray, abused and abandoned animals in our City. They also educate the public about responsible companion animal ownership, aggressively investigate animal cruelty cases and find homes for homeless animals.

Our coin machines are located at both our Thalia and Princess Anne branches. The machines count coins which you can deposit into your account or get cash back. Best of all, the coin machines take loose change, meaning you’ll never have to roll coin again!

There is a nominal fee for using the coin machines. Members are charged 2% of coin deposit, and guest members pay 4% of coin deposit. Rather than keeping the fee income, though, we are matching and donating all collected fees to our Coins for Community partner.
