Current Events

You are cordially invited to attend our very first, one-of-a-kind “Wet Dog” Virtual Dogs Gone Swimming Fundraiser! Head on over to our Facebook page, look for the Virtual Dogs Gone Swimming Event, and click on “Going” so you can be reminded of all the fun that will be happening each day during VDGS Week.

And while you're there please warm our hearts, make us laugh, and brighten our days by posting your own “Wet Dog” photos or videos in the Comments section under the Discussion tab. All “Wet Dogs” qualify – whether from rain, the hose, the sprinkler, getting a bath -- they do NOT need to be swimming, and pics of your pups at previous DGS events are encouraged! Your photos could win you some great DGS swag like t-shirts, towels, or coffee mugs, or even a packet of custom handmade greeting cards made especially for us by local artist (and NACC adopter) Romy Williams.


Check our Facebook page often as we will be holding daily drawings and announcing various contests during VDGS Week. Win some of the great prizes you see above. Be creative, and let the world know how sweet, funny, and tolerant (lol) your own wet dog (or cat!) is!


And if you are able, please consider making a donation to Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center, because even though we're still restricted from holding any in-person events, there are lots of homeless animals at NACC who still need our help! 

Check out the fun times we've had at previous year's Dogs Gone Swimming events:

Thank you for your support!!

 We hope to see you and your WET pets online!!
