FNACC committees are made up of FNACC board members, NACC personnel, and members of the community that want to contribute their time and talents in supporting our causes.  If you'd like more information about how you can help, email us at

NACC Support - Chris Gillenwater, Chair

The NACC Support Committee works with the Norfolk Animal Care Center to lend the Friends of NACC ‘s financial support, as directed by the Board, to the following programs: Foster Program, Medical Assistance Program, Subsidized Adoptions, Golden Paws, and the Volunteer Appreciation Program.

Marketing and Fundraising - Nicole Pellegrino, Chair, Xeus Ang, Stephanie Taylor

Marketing and Fundraising Committee is charged with the planning and implementation of fundraising events that support the mission of the Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center. This includes two signature events: Give Local 757 and Dogtoberfest. The Committee creates and implements marketing for FNACC programs, events, and promotions, and it collaborates with NACC to strengthen outreach to the community.

Additional responsibilities include creating and sharing bi-monthly e-newsletters and posts on our social media platforms. The Committee also oversees the purchase and inventory of merchandise for FNACC & NACC.

Community Service - Peter Fisher, Chair, Xeus Ang

The Community Service Committee oversees the spay/neuter program in which Friends sponsors 12 no cost clinics per year for cats and dogs owned by Norfolk residents. FNACC partners with PETA in providing these important pet services in which Friends covers 100% of the spay/neuter cost and rabies vaccination when needed. Friends also pays for microchip placement which serves as a permanent form of pet and owner identification. Currently 80-90% of all animals utilizing this free spay/neuter service also receive both rabies vaccination and microchip placement.


The Committee also oversees both the mobile and on-site Pantry services under the direction of NACC Management. The pantries’ activities include the distribution of food to animals in need, as well as aiding awareness of pet support options available within the Norfolk community. The Committee purchases the food and also ensures the collection and distribution of data from both the mobile and on-site Pet Pantry.
