Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center is always in need of donations for dog and cat care. Things that would be VERY helpful include:
♦ Cardboard trays (soda/beer case bottoms) for cat litter
♦ Cat litter
♦ Old sheets/blankets/towels
♦ Watering cans
♦ Poop bags (plastic bags from newspapers would very well!)
♦ Wet/dry cat food and kitty treats
♦ Dog food and dog treats
♦ Dog beds
♦ Animal toys (medium size for dogs)
♦ Newspaper (not the glossy pages, thanks)
♦ Pet crates/cages.
Items can be brought directly to the shelter at 341 Birdneck Road, Virginia Beach.
And THANK YOU!
Getting ready to deploy? Check out this special resource for military families:
Previous military deployments have often been accompanied by increased levels of animals being taken to animal shelters but a call to duty doesn't have to mean giving up your pet. Many soldiers have chosen the option of foster care for their animals. Oftentimes a family member or friend is able to foster for a time, but in the event that no one is available, check out this website for organizations specializing in placing military pets into foster care:
