Virginia Law requires, under Code Section 3.2-6548 that no director, operator, staff or caregiver of any Shelter (SPCA, Humane Society, etc.) may have been convicted of animal cruelty, neglect or abandonment. The Stafford SPCA will not even consider employing, or allowing anyone to volunteer, who has been convicted of any of these or related crimes.
