"I'm the Parvo survivor puppy who still has yet to find a home. I was so excited when Caitlin came into my room, and I jumped up on her to ask for attention. I'm happy to be picked up and held, but not for long periods of time. Since I am a puppy, I need someone to work with me on obedience and potty training. I'm a very sweet little girl who just wants a family who can show me how much they love me forever. Give me a warm place to call home, here!"

"If you have trouble figuring out which one I am, just search for the black cat that is bug-eyed. Just a tip, I'm usually sleeping or curled up in something. Once you coax me out of my hiding spot, I'm actually a very nice kitty and love to be scratched. When Caitlin tried to play with me, I wasn't interested and just wanted to go lie back down. If I sound like the right guy for you, take me home, here!"

"I'm a big guy who doesn't know my size so I will need a patient owner who is willing to work with me on my manners. I would really love a big back yard to roam in and an active family who is willing to take me for daily walks. If you think I'm a perfect match, adopt me here!"

"I'm an older mature lady who is fine with anyone and everyone, but like to be respected. I like attention, my space, and lots of love. I do have to note that I have Hyperthyroidism, but that's no biggie because it can be monitored with my diet. Since I am a senior, you can continue to bring me back to the Virginia Beach SPCA to be seen. Bring me home, here!"

"Hi everybody! I'm having a hard time getting adopted. I was returned twice within a few days because of the resident dog in one home and an allergic child in another. Both of my previous families raved about how amazing I am, and I hope to find that perfect fit asap. I am a very lovable girl who just wants a family to love me. Adopt me here!"

"I am an incredibly independent cat who would really like a quiet place to call home. I will require you to wake me up when you come home since I like to nap all day long.

ā€œI'm still hanging out at Chesapeake Animal Services waiting for my miracle family to take me home. The staff and I have no idea why I haven't been adopted up yet, and I hope it's soon. I am a calm and happy-go-lucky guy who loves to go on adventures and take naps. I love to meet other dogs and people! I am a hound so I can be stubborn-headed, loving, and an excellent family dog. Iā€™m super-smart and am already great on a leash, love car rides, and know some basic tricks. Save me here!ā€
