Donate Your Time at Animal Shelters in Virginia Beach

If you enjoy spending time with cats and dogs, consider becoming a volunteer at a nearby shelter. You can help with a range of tasks, from feedings to assisting at fundraising events. The animal shelters near our apartments in Virginia Beach include:

Hope for Life Rescue 

A cage-free facility, the Hope for Life Rescue saves abandoned, abused, and neglected animals. Many of the cats and dogs come from high traffic facilities. They receive proper medical care and enjoy a place to stay until they find forever families. Volunteers play a critical role in helping the rescue achieve its mission. They come from various backgrounds and enjoy donating their time to help animals in need. 

Norfolk Animal Care Center 

At the Norfolk Animal Care Center, the mission is to offer a safe haven for the homeless pets of Norfolk. On average, it helps more than 5,000 animals every year. The center is always looking for friendly volunteers. Donating your time will allow you to better understand animal behavior while forging strong ties to the community. 

Norfolk SPCA

Dating back to 1892, the Norfolk SPCA is one of the country's oldest animal welfare organizations. It opened to focus on concerns about the mistreatment of working horses. Today, the Norfolk SPCA rescues companion animals throughout Hampton Roads. The mission is to provide them with loving care until they find the right home. There are several volunteer opportunities, including working as a pet pal. Those who work in the kennel perform tasks like grooming, dog walking, and agility training. In addition, the volunteers who donate their time in the cattery provide cats with playtime and socialization.
