With the help of the local shelters, we've compiled a list of the cutest pets available for adoption in Hampton Roads.

Each one of these pups and cats is unique in their own way! Check out this week's adorable options, and please consider taking one of these sweet babies home with you!!

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

Lego, 2

I'm shocked this little man has not been adopted yet! Lego came right up to me when I entered the shelter and immediately lay down on his back asking for belly rubs. Lego is potty-trained and is also great with other dogs, so he's a major win in our book! He has warmed up to Stacie, the hound mix that he is rooming with, and they take naps together so it would be a miracle if they went to a home together. Lego will ask for as much attention as he can get and will come when you call him – he's pretty smart! He is very low-energy and wants to be with his humans all the time. Consider him here!

Dasha, 2

Miss Dasha – there is a lot to say about this girl! Don't let her adorableness trick you; this girl has a sassy streak. Dasha would need a patient owner who can play with her for at least an hour a day to help calm down her energy. Dasha pops right up as soon as you approach the room because she is the queen of the house. Please do consider taking her in as she will be a wonderful cat in the longrun – meet 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!

Doppie is a very happy-go-lucky dude who needs an active family. He will do fabulously with other dogs in the home, so if you have them, please bring them along – he could use the enrichment! Bring him into your heart and your home, here!

Spunky, 7

His face may be a little squishy, but his heart is full! He loves to reward his humans with head butts, so set aside some time to give this fellow plenty of scratches. He's a very sweet guy who will greet you as soon as you enter the cat room! Meet 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!

Denny, 11

This little pup is only 12 pounds and is as nervous as he looks. The staff was able to put a harness on him somewhat easily, and he walked well on the leash once he knew that he was going out to go potty. When the staff was petting him and reached his behind, he began to shake, his tail went behind his legs, and he became very nervous. Denny would need someone to take him on daily walks and show him the love and attention that he needs so he can trust humans again. Please take him into your heart here!

Moppet, Young

Her face is absolutely hysterical!  Yes, she is just as active, playful, and curious as she looks! Moppet will love you furever but would also benefit best if she had a kitty friend that she could play with. She's very social! Bring her into your home, 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.

Fluffy suits this chick because of her long-haired mane and tail. She was surrendered (by no fault of her own!) when her family discovered that they were allergic to her. Fluffy is a curious girl who loves to be petted and explore her space. See her here!

Manfred is an adorable name for this charming boxer mix! The staff has described him as a goofy and playful guy who would do best with a daily walk or game of fetch. Please take him home, here!

How attractive are his markings? This stunning dude wants to be the newest member of your family, but please be patient as he is a bit shy when you first approach his cage. Once he feels comfortable he will show you his charming side. Check him out here!
