Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet!
Kitten season seems to never end and we are occasionally swamped with adorable, fluffy, playful kittens of all shapes and sizes!! Come visit the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center to find your new best friend. Some kittens where in foster care where they may have been introduced to adult cats, dogs or other critters. Some are already spayed or neutered and can come home with you today!
Some are shy, some are outgoing - we have a kitten to match your disposition! Come check us out! Our low, low adoption fee of only $60 covers neutering, spaying, microchips, wormings and all shots and all medical attention if required (usually pain meds for females). A 'free' kitten from a friend or off Craigslist will cost you almost $400 for all these services!
Stop in or call today (closed Tuesdays) but please be aware we do have some basic requirements for adoption:
Be 18 or older with a picture ID with your current address.
Renting? Bring a copy of your lease with the pet clause CLEARLY stated.
Resident cats or dogs? Bring proof of their current rabies and city license.
Disclaimer: Because kittens come and go very quickly we recommend you call ahead of your visit to see if we have any on the adoption floor. Please do not call asking for a particular kitten that is pictured. We have many adorable kittens available but those pictured may be adopted! Plus don't forget to ask about kittens in foster care. Visit our Facebook page 'Foster Cats of Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center' for a sneak peek. You can also contact many of the foster families and ask for a meet and greet.
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 ***Kittens Available***. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
