Coco Finds New Home and Now Chills by the Pool!
We visited the Norfolk Animal Adoption Center in March looking for a second dog for a playmate for "Rosie" (a Redbone Hound dog). We found a great, friendly tan Lab -Retriever mix and loved her. The staff at your NACC was excellent, friendly and helpful supporting our search. We came back for a meet and greet with Rosie, and all went well.
We have had Coco for a couple weeks and she is GREAT. She adapted well to her new home and loves to go out for walks or sit on our porch watching the birds.
Stephanie was our dog handler who assisted us and is a great representative for your Norfolk Center. Thank you for all you do to save pets and assist in families adopting animals. Attached is picture of Coco hanging out by the pool.
Bob & Tricia
Thanks to all of the wonderful staff and volunteers, who helped bring us together, Sadie is growing in stature, health, and happiness every month. She is such sweet company to me and her best bud, Jackie (AKA, Zander, also from NACC -- right) ) as we prepare for the rest of our family to come home for the holidays. Sadie loves to visit with everyone and gets lots of extra belly rubs!
We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Friendship at First Sight
In mid-November, I was dropping off some donations and went for a stroll in the cat section to see how the cats were doing. I guess I must have had a feeling about what would come next!
Then, Grayson saw me first and decided that I was to be his human. He began playing with me through the glass and after a while, I could not help but ask to take him out and see how we would mesh.
Disregarding the smell of hand sanitizer, the 7-month-old little cat melted in my arms and began to purr. I immediately knew that he would be a beautiful complement to my 2-year-old cat Hector, a sweet and loving cat in need of another furry friend. I knew I wanted a second cat but was waiting for a perfect match, and this was it! Less than half an hour later, Grayson and his meager belongings were on their way to a forever home!
I followed the instructions of the helpful staff and online resources, introducing Hector and Leo very slowly. I put Leo in a separate room and engaged all their senses before they met face to face. When they finally did, it was friendship at first sight that melted my heart! Today, almost 3 months after the day I brought Leo home, he is a happy, loving, outgoing, quickly-growing and playful kitten, and a best friend Hector could have asked for! The two are inseparable and literally take turns eating and playing with toys to make sure they both get a chance. And as for me, I can feel Leo's gratitude for this new chance at life through his affection and loyalty. Hector and Leo are cherished as they should be and want for absolutely nothing. I am a proud "mom" and our little family is happy and complete. The end!
A Happy and Contented Bunny
I am thrilled to share with you Asher's story. Since coming home only four days ago he has performed every act of a happy and content bunny, with the exception of a binkie; which I am positive will come as he heals a bit more.
My hearts melts each time I hear him flop or walk by to see him curled up with his paws in the air, completely relaxed and comfortable. His list of favorite things is quickly lengthening and includes activities such as getting someone to pet him or give a gentle rub behind his ear; which typically leads to a nap, and of course any time he gets his favorite papaya treats or spinach leaves from the kids. Each morning he is anxious to get out and explore, but equally enjoys basking in the glory of his own space.
As you can see we LOVE having Asher as a member of our family and with each day that passes he is showing us more of his exciting personality. Thank you so much for taking good care of him until we could bring him to his furever home.
With your generous donations, together we can change the lives of animals in Hampton Roads.
