Denny's Story
This young Shitzu was found by a Norfolk police officer badly wounded and obviously neglected. He was brought to Norfolk Animal Care & Adoption Center where he has received much needed care, thanks to your donations and support of programs like Dogs Gone Swimming.

Thanks For Making 6th Annual Dogs Gone Swimming Our Best Year Ever!
Over $16,000 was raised for Norfolk Animal Care Center; 350 dogs had a wonderful day in the pool, and everyone enjoyed a day filled with field attractions, Dock Dogs demonstrations, activities and more.  Looking forward to next year! Check out our Dogs Gone Swimming Facebook page for fun and photos.
