Howdy. The name's Norm. I'm a big handsome love bug with a big brain to match. I love to exercise physically and mentally. My perfect day would be a long walk, then a cuddle, followed by a delicious Kong, then a training session, and then ended with another cuddle session. I do have to tell you I like to act big and tough when I meet knew people. I have what the people here like to call "stranger danger". That just means it can take me a couple times to warm up to someone new. Please don't let that stop you from wanting to meet me. I'm well worth it. Once I trust you, I'm a big ol lap dog ready to be your best friend. Ask one of my friends here and they can help start our friendship. **A very generous friend has sponsored my adoption fee, so you can take me home for free this December!**
*PLEASE NOTE - EMAILS MAY NOT BE RETURNED IMMEDIATELY, SO IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT AN ANIMAL AND THEIR STATUS, PLEASE CALL THE SHELTER.*
If you are interested in this wonderful animal, you must first complete an adoption application found at www.norfolkspca.com and return it with the following documentation: 1) Proof of residency (Homeowners: a copy of your house deed or most recent mortgage statment, or we can contact the city assessor to confirm ownership if documenation is not available; Renters: a copy of rental lease agreement). Please note, we require this information to ensure our animals go to homes that allow their species, breed and/or size. Home owners are restricted by their city's pet allowance (both in number of animals in the home and sometimes by breed) and renters are restricted by their rental agency/landlord agreements.
2) Copy of adopter(s) photo id's. Adopter must be 21 years of age or 25 years if adopting a pit bull (pure or mixed breed).
3) If you currently have animals, proof of current vaccinations and spay/neuter status. You may also provide us with your veterinarian's contact information if proof is not available.
We do our best to keep our list of available animals current, however we can not guarantee an animal you view here will still be available when you visit the shelter. The best way to get more information on the status of an animal is to visit the shelter, located at 916 Ballentine Boulevard in Norfolk or call 622-3319.
