Pet Adoptions

Somebody in here is waiting for somebody out there. Adopt a shelter animal and be their somebody!

Norfolk Animal Care Center is an open admissions facility, providing a safe haven for animals from the City of Norfolk. NACC focuses its efforts solely on local animals in need. Animals are never turned away, regardless of species, age, health or temperament. NACC cares for 400 to 600 animals each month and nearly 6,000 animals each year.


All NACC dogs, cats and rabbits are spayed or neutered before leaving the Center. Dogs and cats also are microchipped and vaccinated. Staff strive to make the best possible matches between the adopters and their new companion. Check out profiles and pictures of NACC adoptable animals by clicking on links below, or visit NACC today.  Give an animal the opportunity to pick their next human.
