Congratulations to Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center (NACC), who recently received a $5000 grant from the Banfield Charitable Trust for their Pet Pantry! The volunteers with Friends work hard to help residents keep and care for their pets, and we’ve been happy to collaborate with them for the years we’ve been doing the same. In 2014, they will contribute $500/month to our work.
The Banfield grant will allow Friends continue helping people; but, they need more food donations to the Pet Pantry. (Grant funding alone would only help until June.) If you spot a great deal on cat or dog food, grab an extra bag or two and drop them off at one of the many donation locations:
Muddy Paws – 3700 Hampton Blvd, Norfolk
Longs-Roullet Bookbinders – 2800 Monticello Avenue, Norfolk
Old Donation Episcopal Church – 4449 N. Witchduck Road, Virginia Beach
Dog & Cat Hospital – 238 W. 21st ST, Norfolk
5 Points Farmers Market – 26th & Church ST, Norfolk
Norfolk Pet Pantry – located behind the NACC shelter at 5585 Sabre Road, Norfolk
* Please note that NACC employees do not staff the Pet Pantry. Donations taken to the shelter should be placed in the Pet Pantry donation box just outside of the pantry shed behind the shelter.
