This Holiday Season, Please Remember the Homeless Pets of NACC

Many of us are inspired to give during the holiday season, and we’re asking you to remember our loving, four-legged friends at Norfolk Animal Care Center (NACC). We know that every animal that comes into the shelter could be a joyful addition to a Hampton Roads family. Your gift will ensure NACC can continue its life-saving commitment to our animal friends. Your gift help us continue our life-saving commitment by supporting medical care, foster programs, staff training, medical equipment and medications, adoption events, spay/neuter clinics and more.

Stocking Stuffer Stocking Stuffer Saturday!

Every Saturday before Christmas, Friends of NACC will be holding a holiday hullabaloo in the lobby at NACC!

We've got one-stop shopping for the animal lovers in your life this holiday season. Come buy a benefit calendar chockfull of cute cops and critters, or how about a beer glass with a dog hoisting a pint? Don't even get us started on apparel; we will have T-shirts for humans and holiday bling and accessories for all pets - even guinea pigs! And, if that's not enough holiday fun for you, feel free to peruse our certified, pre-owned pets while our "December to Remember" subsidized adoption event is going on ALL MONTH LONG! Our aim is to break last year's record - 295 adoptions! Our 296th adopter is in for a real treat - ssssh, it's a secret!

A December to Remember Holiday Adoption Event

It's the biggest, the brightest, and the best adoption event of the year! Make it a "December to Remember" for the pets waiting at the Norfolk Animal Care Center! $25 for dogs, $10 for cats and rabbits, $5 for Guinea pigs and other little critters. Last year, 295 lucky animals found a home for the holidays. Can we top it this year? We sure can with your help! Spread the love; spread the word.

Hampton Roads Show Appearance

Our thanks to The Hampton Roads Show and the Norfolk Police Department for partnering with us to promote our December adoption event and our Finest & Furriest calendar. We had a great time, and even the littlest guest, foster kitten Gus, made hearts melt. Our calendars make great stocking stuffers for animal lovers, fans of our local law enforcement, and those near and far who love the landmarks in the great city of Norfolk. Get your calendar at the shelter or order here. And if you missed the show, don’t fret!  Just follow this link for all the fun and fur:
