Now's the time: the Fourth Annual Fall Feline FESTIVAL starts SATURDAY!

Chesapeake Animal Services is celebrating our fourth annual Fall Feline Festival in partnership with the Chesapeake Humane Society, Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center, and Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center.


The Fall Feline Festival will run from October 5, 2019 through October 13, 2019. Adoption fees for all adult cats and kittens are only $25 at each participating shelter! This includes spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, and a microchip.


There are over 250 fabulous felines currently waiting to find their forever homes at these participating shelters across Hampton Roads. Help these felines get a fresh start this fall season by adopting!

This Wednesday, Aug. 28th, is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day, which brings back wonderful animal memories for Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center. In the 11 years we have been putting on this fundraiser, we have heard so many fantastic adoption stories that not only touched our hearts but gained us friends, supporters, volunteers, staff and board members. Perhaps there is a special pet or NACC alumni you would like to remember this year? With a favorite pet DGS sponsorship, you can help us help more pets find loving homes. Every year we have sponsors in honor of a favorite pet. This year's sponsors will get something

extra - $100 sponsors will be recognized on Facebook and get a free swim session, $200 sponsors will also be recognized and in addition we will list your pet sponsorship on our sponsor poster at the event and give you an all-day swim pass. We would love for you to send us your pet's photo and a line or two on what made them special so we can put them on our Facebook page too! #RnbowBridgeRemembranceDay #SupportNACC


Go to our Sponsorships page and choose the "Toy Group" to sponsor your favorite pet.

Thank you for your support!!
