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!
Any Star Trek fans out there that would love their very own cute Uhura? Our Uhura is a cute little black and white girl, less than a year old that was brought in as a stray from the Village Road / Maple Bay Apartments area. 'Uhura' comes from the Swahili word 'uhura', meaning 'freedom'. Unfortunately, we had to cut this little girl's freedom short because she does not understand how dangerous it can be for strays in the great outdoors.
Come meet Uhura where she can be found people gazing instead of star gazing in our caged adoption room. She'd love to come home and watch all those old Star Trek shows (featuring her namesake) with you during these upcoming winter nights! Uhura is somewhat cat-friendly with non-aggressive cats, and will be spayed shortly after adoption. #1610-1947
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 1610-1947 Uhura. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
