Hi there! I'm Bruce and I'm very excited to find my forever home. I'm 3 years old and need a bit of training to be the best dog I can be. I have a lot of energy so I'll need to meet any children or other dogs in your household before you take me home, just to make sure we all will be happy! I'm neutered, vaccinated, and have a microchip that will be registered to my family upon adoption. Come visit me today and see if I'm the perfect addition to your family!

About Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

The Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter (PRAS) is a collaborative venture supported by four separate Hampton Roads communities: Newport News, Hampton, Poquoson, and York County. This 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is managed and operated by the City of Newport News on behalf of the four jurisdictions. This "open-admission" shelter contains a full service veterinary clinic and has capacity for approximately 100 dogs and 180 cats, as well as pocket pets and other small companion animals. The shelter's primary responsibilities include holding stray animals until they can be reunited with their owners, rehoming owner-surrendered pets, and facilitating pet adoptions. The shelter also houses animal control offices for the participating jurisdictions.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter is open every day from 8am-5pm to reunite owners with lost companions. We are open every afternoon, except on Tuesdays, for adoptions. There is a late evening for adoptions until 7pm Fridays.

Please come visit us at
5843 Jefferson Ave
Newport News VA

We look forward to helping match you up with your next lifetime companion.

Our Adoption Process...

We would need to see an adopter's lease or HOA agreement to verify they are allowed to have animals where they live, and photo identification. An adoption contract is signed during the adoption process, and some animals may have additional requirements

Our adoption fees are:
Small dogs and puppies - $100.00
Large dogs - $50.00
Kittens - $60.00
Adult Cats - $50.00
