About Norfolk SPCA
Established in 1892, the Norfolk SPCA is one of the oldest animal welfare organizations in the country. Originally founded because of concerns about the mistreatment of working horses, the Norfolk SPCA now shelters, treats, rehabilitates and rehomes household companion animals from throughout Hampton Roads/Coastal Virginia to give them the extra time and care needed to find that forever home. In 2007, we’ve added an affordable veterinary clinic open to the public and a second veterinary clinic that serves the Norfolk Animal Care Center, municipal shelter.
The Norfolk SPCA will be a leader and partner in creating a community in which all healthy and treatable companion animals are saved.
To reduce the need in our community for the sheltering of companion animals and to provide the highest quality of care and adoptions when sheltering animals is necessary.
