Serving central Virginia, and with a sanctuary located in Louisa, VA, the Animal Care Assistance Program, or ACAP, is a 501(c)3 organization which was established in 2015 to provide low-income pet owners the opportunity to get their dogs and cats much needed veterinary care, which they would not otherwise be able to afford. ACAP also pulls high risk senior dogs from rural shelters, fully vets them and, depending upon their health needs, places them into loving homes through their foster-to-adopt program.
The Mid-Atlantic English Springer Spaniel Rescue Organization (MAESSR) is dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing Springers. MAESSR is active primarily in PA, DE, NJ, MD, VA, WV, NC, NY, and the District of Columbia. However, when it comes to rescuing English Springer Spaniels, there are no borders as they will go anywhere, anytime, to save a Springer. MAESSR is committed to providing excellent medical and dental treatment and foster care for Springers, while screening potential homes interested in adopting.
Established in 1892, the Norfolk SPCA is one of the oldest animal welfare organizations in the country. The SPCA shelters, treats, rehabilitates, and rehomes household companion animals from throughout the Norfolk-Virginia Beach region and gives them the extra time and care needed to find a forever home. Our no-kill adoption center finds new homes for 1,000 homeless dogs and cats each year.
Highland County Humane Society, Inc. is a foster-based, 100% volunteer animal rescue serving poor, rural mountain communities in VA and WV. Traditional animal control and shelters do not exist in the counties we serve, and Highland County has no permanent veterinarian. Highland County Humane Society is dedicated to promoting health, safety, welfare, compassionate care, and protection of animals through a cooperative engagement with Highland County, its citizens, and other like-minded animal welfare groups.
Virginia German Shepherd Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of the German Shepherd Dog. They provide a safe haven for German Shepherds (and, sometimes, other breeds/mixes) who are left in shelters to await uncertain fate; are owner surrenders (moving, illness, divorce, death, etc.); or are victims of abuse or neglect. They adopt dogs to loving, responsible and secure homes, typically, in Virginia and the Metropolitan Washington, D.C., area.
VBSPCA, created in 1966, is a private nonprofit humane society that takes in almost 4,000 homeless domestic animals and nearly 2,200 wildlife animals each year, and is dedicated to finding homes for all adoptable animals. Through their medical clinic and mobile Neuter Scooter, they also provide spay/neuter and other veterinary services to the public. Their mission is to create a more humane and responsible community by increasing our capacity for compassion while decreasing our tolerance for cruelty.
The mission of Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center is to support the Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center (NACC) in sheltering and caring for Norfolk's stray and homeless animals, to promote and facilitate adoptions, to assist with special medical care, to promote and support spay/neuter in the community and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.
