My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

***LONG TIMER SPECIAL ELIGIBLE! In an effort to help our “Long-Timers” out of the shelter and into forever homes, adoption fees through the end of the year will be $0 for any animal who has been at the shelter for 6+ months. No adoption event or special fee weekend necessary!***

MOJO - 6-7 years old, house trained, takes a little time to warm up to you, no other pets or kids, quiet (except when he sings), and very loyal. 

I had the pleasure of hanging out with Mojo and one of his favorite volunteers. Mojo has come such a long way! He arrived at VBACAC after living his whole life protected by his family, an elderly couple until they both passed. This poor boy arrived scared and shut down.  It took a long time for him to start to feel comfortable enough with staff to let them handle him. Fast forward several months and we see Mojo doing so well! His reactions to other dogs have subsided with training and attention. He loves learning new tricks. He is eager to please you. He trots around, tail up and head held high waiting for his next command.  He sits. He stays. He retrieves.  Mojo is even walking through the kennel without looking twice at the other barking dogs. Please enjoy the new videos and photos of our boy and if you are interested in a sweet friendly and super smart boy, call VBACAC at 385-4444 and make an appointment to meet him! Please remember it might take several visits for him to trust you but once he does, he will be yours, loyal and all, forever.

Additional adoption info

Adoption Procedures:

Citizens interested in adopting an animal are encouraged to visit the shelter. Some animals can go home right away, where others must be held for a few days first. All animals available for adoption are accessible to the public for viewing. In many cases the animal can go home with you the same day. A representative selection of animals in the kennel can be viewed at Petfinder .
All dogs and cats adopted from the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center will be sterilized prior to the adopter taking the animal home.
Upon adoption and within 10 days the animal must be taken to a licensed veterinarian for a thorough examination.
If an animal is found to be ill and the new owner wishes to return it they may, with written proof of illness from the veterinarian.
Please keep in mind that as a municipal animal shelter, we have very few indications as to which kinds of pets will arrive at any given time and the best selections go home the fastest. Please visit our shelter early and often to find the pet you are looking for.
PLEASE, never adopt a companion animal on an impulse-having a pet is a full-time responsibility as well as a financial commitment. Make sure that you as well as every member of your family is ready, willing and able to take on the obligations associated with pet ownership, give careful thought to the kind of pet that would be best-suited for your home and then come and visit our shelter.

Before You Adopt, You Should Know...

The Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center handles approximately 7000 animals annually. Many of the animals that arrive are strays with no health or behavior history. For this reason, the Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center, the Virginia Beach Police Department or the City of Virginia Beach cannot offer any form of guarantee as to the health or temperament of the animal being adopted. We will make every reasonable effort to ascertain the overall health and behavior of the animals we have available for adoption to the public, however the ultimate responsibility for choosing the right pet lies with the pet adopter.

If you adopt an animal from our shelter and if for any reason the pet is not suitable, simply return it to our shelter. Due to the high volume of animals that arrive at the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center shelter from strays found by Officers, animals that have been surrendered to our care by their owners and those that are turned is as strays by citizens, we do our best to keep our listings updated with pets currently available in our shelter. In some cases a pet listed might have been adopted or reclaimed by it's owner. That being said we ALWAYS have more animals available for adoption that what is listed. Animals can be adopted quickly and we don't always get to them before that happens so the best way to see our available animals is to come visit the shelter.
