Friends of Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center have assisted SpayHR by sponsoring spay/neuter clinics and providing funds for vaccinations. They also host the fabulously fun Dogs Gone Swimming, which will be held later this year.
Friends of NACC directly helps residents of Southside Tidewater to keep their pets by providing free dog and cat food, cat litter, and supplies for qualifying residents. Currently, the Norfolk Pet Pantry is assisting 143 families and supporting 189 dogs and 141 cats. Please consider donating to the Pantry so that they can continue to help these people and pets in need. The Pantry is located in a small shed behind the Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center at 5585 Sabre Road in Norfolk.
The Pantry is open the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. This is the best time to drop off donations. Donations can also be dropped off at the Norfolk Petco in Janaf Shopping Center, the Virginia Beach Petco on Princess Anne Road, Long’s Roullet Bookbinders on Monticello, and Muddy Paws on Hampton Boulevard. Special arrangements for large donations can be made by calling the Pet Pantry number at 955-7581.
Friends volunteers also use monetary donations and coupons for bulk purchases that make their funds go further. Monetary donations and coupons can be dropped off at the Pantry during open hours, mailed to Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center, P.O. Box 11403 Norfolk, VA 23517, or made online. Groups interested in organizing a pet food drive (like the awesome young women of Girl Scout Troup 1613) can contact Friends via email or at 955-7581.
