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!
If you bury your head under a blanket the world will go away! That is what Onyx seems to be thinking here in the busy-ness of the shelter. Onyx is very shy but loves head rubs and chin scritches and we feel with time and patience he will come out of his shell, er...blanket! Onyx was abandoned in a carrier in front of the SPCA so it's no wonder life is scary to him.
Onyx is a gorgeous beautiful black beauty that would love to spend his days with a quiet, sweet person willing to give him time to relax and settle in to his new home. Onyx is already neutered so he can come home on adoption day (closed Tuesdays). Provide a nice cozy box for him to hide in initially and visit with him often and he will come around in no time. #1702-0463
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 1702-0463 Onyx. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
