Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center extends shelter hours as kennels fill to capacity

NORFOLK, Va. – The Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center currently has a critical need for adoptions as warmer weather means the shelter’s kennels are filling up.

According to the NACC, there is little space left in the kennel for incoming dogs – so if you are interested, now is the perfect time to bring home a four-legged friend.

If you are unable to commit to adopting a dog at this time, NACC is also looking for foster dog homes to take adoptable dogs into their homes until their forever families are found.

The NACC will provide all necessary supplies and medical care to host families. To learn more about the foster program, email [email protected]

The shelter is also accepting volunteer applications for those who want to help but cannot house an animal. You can email [email protected] for more details on volunteer orientation.

To accommodate the increased need for adoptions and foster homes, NACC is extending its hours of operation on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The shelter will now be open from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as well as from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Fridays and from 12 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Norfolk Animal Care & Adoption Center is located at 5585 Saber Road. You can reach the shelter at 757-441-5505 or email [email protected] for more information.
