About Norfolk Animal Care & Adoption Center
The City of Norfolk’s Animal Care and Adoption Center provides dog and cat adoptions and will help Pets for Patriots members find their new best friend. The shelter cares for nearly 6,000 animals each year and has a wide variety seeking permanent homes. In addition to pet adoption, the City is responsible for animal control, cruelty investigations and enforcement of all applicable animal codes.
To support the bond between pets and people, the shelter maintains a lost pet directory that helps reunite owners with missing pets. The friendly staff are proud of their work on behalf of the community’s homeless animals, including the immaculate shelter environment and excellent care they provide to the pets in their charge.
The Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center welcomes monetary donations through the Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center, as well as contributions of pet food, toys, leashes and collars, laundry and office supplies; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands on experience, become one of their valued volunteers or pet fosters.
