Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center and Norfolk SPCA Partner to Feed Pets in Need
The Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center wishes to express our most sincere appreciation to the Norfolk SPCA for sharing their donated pet food and supplies with the Norfolk Pet Pantry. In two separate deliveries in March, the Norfolk SPCA brought to us 2,205 pounds of cat and dog food for distribution to our Norfolk Pet Pantry patrons.
The Norfolk SPCA has announced on their website that they gratefully accept donations at their Ballentine Boulevard location not only for their shelter animals, but also for distribution by the Norfolk Pet Pantry to pet guardians in need. We are so grateful for this wonderful partnership and we look forward to other ways our organizations can work together to assist pet parents in need during these challenging economic times.
Petco Foundation Awards Generous Grant to Support Golden Paws and Other Adoption Activities!
“Petco Foundation has long been a partner with Friends in our efforts to assist the Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center,” said Linda Davis, Friend’s Chairperson. “This grant will further enhance our partnership by finding forever homes for 272 shelter animals. We’re excited for the animals and grateful for the Petco Foundation’s support.”
On Saturday, March 23, 9-year-old Max Willette of Norfolk and his dad, Michael, delivered 548 pounds of pet food to the Norfolk Pet Pantry. This is a portion of the over 1,800 pounds of bagged pet food that Max collected for donation to Animal Rescue of Tidewater. An article about Max’s amazing accomplishment appeared in the 24 March Norfolk Compass. Max and ART very kindly shared this bounty with us for distribution to Norfolk Pet Pantry patrons. Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center is very grateful to Max and to ART for their generosity.

Wanted: Foster Families!
We're looking for volunteers to provide foster homes for shelter animals. Opening your home gives animals the extra care necessary so they may be placed for adoption. Some require temporary foster homes because they are too young for adoption, may have an injury or may need a different environment than the Adoption Center can provide. If you are interested, click here for more information.
