2012-WWM-Puppy PleadingWon't you consider making a donation to the Friends of Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center? The Friends of Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit volunteer organization that is dedicated to helping the animals who find themselves in the care of Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center (the City of Virginia Beach municipal shelter). Our goal is to save the lives of all adoptable and treatable animals housed in the shelter. We count on the support of our community to help these animals by purchasing needed supplies, by covering veterinary expenses for sick/injured animals, and by advertising to help get the animals adopted. All donations are tax deductible and go directly to help the animals. Please make a donation today!
