There are tabby cats, German Shepherds, pit bulls, and more!

All of their faces say, "Please come save me." We've compiled a list of the cutest pets available in Hampton Roads. Check out this week's adorable options!

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!

This week, two cats are being featured, as the only dogs they have are either not currently up for adoption, heading on a home visit, or heading to their forever homes. 

Helen, 12

Ms. Helen! My goodness, this girl is incredibly sweet! Every single time I step into the cat haven, she comes running over asking for attention. Helen has a very unique meow that actually scared me at first because I didn't expect such a large sound to come from such a petite cat! Though she gets along with the other kitties, she wants to be the center of attention and will meow at them to move out of the way. Helen came to The Hope Center badly matted and needed to be shaved down due to the condition of her fur. Since she now resembles a tiger with bare legs, the staff likes to call her Miss Long Legs! See her profile here!

Captain, 4

El Cap-i-tan, Cap-O, Oh Captain My Captain ... I'm out of nicknames. If you go to Hope for Life looking for him, I promise this dude is in the room – he's just up on the top shelf near the ceiling during the day! When the staff gets there in the morning, he comes down for his morning routine and follows them everywhere, being social on his terms. He's really more of a morning person. When I walked into the cat haven, he was up high on the shelves snoozing and had no interest in coming down. He has been at the shelter for a very long time (over a year) so he really needs a good person to come to rescue him. Once we finally wooed him down, he was incredibly sweet, very observant, and melted at a good scratch! So please, when you go to meet him, look up! Find him 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 website, Facebook, and Instagram!

Tilly, 2

Tilly is a cattle dog/beagle mix who requires an active home because of her active mind – be sure to put her to work and keep her busy! She is a little shy at first but will warm up quickly! Since she has an active mind, she requires a home with a family that will keep her learning! Meet her here!

Ariel, 9

"Gadgets and gizmos aplenty, please come soon and adopt me." Sadly, this Ariel does not sing, but that would be her song if she did. If you love to give your pet plenty of attention, brush them, and pet them as much as you can, then consider Ariel for adoption. She has the colors of a creamsicle and gorgeous yellow eyes, so she's very hard to miss! She is the perfect mix between chatty and relaxed. Learn more 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 website, Instagram, and Facebook. Check out their adoption process and fees here!

Gucci, 1-5

No, she is not a designer brand purse, but she has plenty of beautiful pink markings! If you want an only child who is already house-trained, affectionate, and has good manners, look no further! Gucci is a smaller girl who would not take up a lot of space – except in your heart. I can't with that smile! Staff believes that she is best without any children. She is not loving the shelter life, so please come rescue this little girl here!

Alexa, 12

Just a fair warning: Alexa does not like other cats or the shelter (she's uncomfortable and is acting angry) so she would require an owner who would be patient enough to help break her out of her shell. She would do best as an only child with someone who can allow her to open up and trust you. She has been described as a very sassy and talkative cat so she will keep you entertained all day long. Please consider her 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 website, Facebook, and Instagram.

Arlo, 1

Arlo is one lucky boy because he was recently taken out on a snout and about and had an absolute blast! He rode in the car happily, loved begging for treats, and was an absolute love bug. Heed the warning: Prepare yourself for tons of belly rubs with this guy! Consider taking him home here!

Bella, 8

Bella is shy at first, but once she warms up to you, she will just melt and beg for attention! She was surrendered to the shelter again, in April, because her owners were moving and could no longer care for her. She will need to find an owner who can give her a permanent place to be! Discover her here!

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!

Pam, 8

She looks like an abstract painting! Not much is known about Pam, but she appears to be a very happy girl! Although she is a senior, she looks like she has plenty of energy to spare! Meet her here!

Menudo, 12

Just look at her face! Oh my goodness! How could anyone have left this senior girl behind? By the looks of it, she may be a very curious girl who loves attention, so be sure to check her out here!

Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter | Newport News

The Peninsula SPCA is more than just an adoption shelter; they're a petting zoo, too. Popular to the locals, you can find them at 5843 Jefferson Ave., in Newport News – check them out on Facebook, Instagram, and their website! The shelter performs a behavioral test on each animal while they are at the shelter so they can provide a thorough description. 

Boz, 10

Just look at that smile – he's camera-ready! Though ready for action, Boz is, sadly, heartworm-positive so he will need to complete his treatment while in the home with you. Anyone who has had a German Shepherd knows that they are extremely loving and goofy dogs, so consider taking home this happy boy! Meet him here!

Pearl, 6

Can you see her beautiful and unique markings? This gorgeous girl was surrendered when the family had to move and could no longer care for her! She absolutely loves children and was very excited when the little baby from her previous family was born, so she would do fine in a home with kids. She appears to be a sweet and curious girl who loves to lounge around and observe the area. Find her here!
