Hope for Life Rescue, Inc. | Virginia Beach

Hope for Life Rescue, Inc., is an amazing nonprofit shelter located at 610 Jack Rabbit Rd, Ste 3., in Virginia Beach. When you get there, you'll find them in the third building to the left—by the big yellow truck! See their available animals on their Facebook page

Whippoorwill, 8

Whippoorwill (what a mouthful) is an incredibly sweet and independent girl. She prefers to have a bed three times the size of her so she can spread out. When I entered the shelter, she was sort of hesitant to come up and say hello, but once she got a free moment, she wandered over for a few seconds and then went right back to the bed. She does not like being picked up (which I tried) so you need to respect her wishes. See this video of her when she's not sleepy! If Whippoorwill sounds like the pup for you, check her out here!

Sarachi, 1

Sarachi is as spicy as her name (seriously)! I have had several encounters with her that have both been positive and negative. When I stood next to her while I was looking into the kitten room, she swatted at my head! But don't let that alarm you. Sarachi is a very confident cat with an attitude so she will need an owner who can keep her occupied and play with her for several hours a day. When I entered the cat room most recently, she was already sleeping on the cat tower and let me pet her. For a moment I thought she was a different cat until she reached out and scratched me! Her new owner will need to understand that she needs a lot of alone time and only a few seconds of love. See her here!

Virginia Beach SPCA (VBSPCA)

The Virginia Beach SPCA is a private-run shelter, meaning they do not get any government funding and are in the Hampton Roads area at 3040 Holland Rd., in Virginia Beach. Check them out on their websiteFacebook, and Instagram!

Bandit is a labrador pitbull mix who has incredibly cute ears! He is an energetic pup, whose favorite time of day is playtime! He is still very young so he would benefit best from an owner who can train him. Meet him here!

Riddick, 10

Riddick is a shy guy at first, so it will take him time to open up to you, but once he does, he's very affectionate. The shelter recommends giving him some catnip to help him feel comfortable. See him here!

Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center

The Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center is another local VB shelter located at 341 S. Birdneck Rd. in Virginia Beach. Check them out on their websiteInstagram, and Facebook. Check out their adoption process and fees here!

Sansa, 1-5

Sansa is an extremely nervous and shy girl who will require time to open up to the right person, much like her Game of Thrones character counterpart. Since she has plenty of nervous qualities, it took her a long time to open up to the staff at the shelter and to trust people. Sansa needs an owner who can help her conquer her fears and break her out of her little shell. It's also a bonus if you have another dog; she loves them! Hear more about her story, here!

Percy, 1-5

He would make an excellent barn cat or with an owner who can help deal with his sinusitis in a calm and understanding manner. If you feel that you have the patience, please come meet this goofy boy, here!

Chesapeake Animal Services

Chesapeake Animal Services is a local shelter located at 2100 S. Military Hwy, in Chesapeake. You can check them out on their websiteFacebook, and Instagram.

Valentine, 1-5

This lucky girl has gone on two Snout and Abouts recently and was a total sweetheart both times. Valentine was phenomenal in the car, super-polite, and managed to match the volunteer's energy when walking. If you think that she sounds like a match, please head on down to the shelter to meet her!

Nightlight, 3

Norfolk SPCA

The Norfolk SPCA is the local shelter to the Norfolk area and can be found at 916 Ballentine Boulevard, in Norfolk. Check them out on their website and Facebook!

Buddy, 5

Buddy is a smart pup who already knows basic tricks but would benefit from some other training. The staff thinks that he could do well with an active family who has some downtime on the couch because he can adjust to both settings. He does love playing fetch with the staff and is teaching them how he plays! If he sounds like the pup for you, check him out here!

Sebastian, 3
