Adoptable Shelter Pets - Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center
We are a free roam, no kill animal rescue shelter for cats and dogs in Virginia Beach. Stress free, happy pets. Come visit us soon!
The Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center handles approximately 7000 animals annually. Many of the animals that arrive are strays with no health or behavior history. For this reason, the Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center, the Virginia Beach Police Department or the City of Virginia Beach cannot offer any form of guarantee as to the health or temperament of the animal being adopted. We will make every reasonable effort to ascertain the overall health and behavior of the animals we have available for adoption to the public, however the ultimate responsibility for choosing the right pet lies with the pet adopter. If you adopt an animal from our shelter and if for any reason the pet is not suitable, simply return it to our shelter.
The Virginia Beach SPCA is the largest and most progressive animal shelter and humane society in South Hampton Roads. We shelter and care for approximately 6,000 homeless companion animals each year, and have extensive programs for companion animal adoption, wildlife rehabilitation, humane education, pet therapy, and low-cost spaying and neutering. We are a private non-profit organization, dependent entirely on contributions for our budget.

At Forever Homes Sanctuary in Virginia Beach, near Town Center, an inspector noted in February a dog named Delbert died because of inadequate emergency care. A spokeswoman for the shelter admitted to NewsChannel 3 a staff member kicked the dog so hard it later died. The inspector wrote that several animal enclosures were unsafe, and the facility was not adequately ventilated “as evidenced by significant odor and humidity.” The inspector also noted the shelter had no posted hours for the public, which is required. When NewsChannel 3 visited, there was a sign stapled to the door with shelter hours, but no one answered the door or the phone.The Virginia Beach SPCA is Hampton Roads’ largest private animal shelter.
