These are some of the saddest cases we take in. Blackie's favorite person in the world was taken to a nursing home where he could no longer care for him. Sweet, little 9 year old Blackie is left without anything familiar to him in the world. At this age he should be enjoying his golden years with his golden aged senior person, cuddled in a lap instead of sitting in a shelter where the busy-ness can be a tad overwhelming. A nice citizen ultimately adopted him but returned him a few months later as he was not a good fit for his family and their senior cat who started to lose weight and was stressed.
Look at this sweet boy's face and you can see the uncertainty in his eyes. Seniors have the hardest time adjusting to shelter life and need to find permanent forever homes quickly, for their own peace of mind. It's hard on them, but the good news is that cats are resilient and soon warm up to new homes and new love. This gorgeous fellow has jade green eyes with an edge of turquoise near the center!
Come meet this super cute little senior fellow today. He was at PetSmart for awhile but he's back at the Shelter now #1605-1514.
Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center has wonderful pets available for adoption. As of December 6, all animals are now at the new shelter at 341 Birdneck Road. The former shelter on Leroy Drive is now closed. If you have lost a pet, please visit the shelter in person and often as lost animals arrive everyday.
Act quickly to adopt 1605-1514 Blackie. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
