Notes:History 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 workhorses, the Norfolk SPCA now shelters, treats, rehabilitates and re-homes household companion animals throughout Hampton Roads to give them the extra time and care needed to find that forever home. Vision The Norfolk SPCA will be a leader and partner in creating a community in which all healthy and treatable companion animals are saved. Mission 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. Ways in which the Norfolk SPCA reduces the need for sheltering of companion animals: * Providing affordable and charitable veterinary services with an emphasis on spay/neuter. * Offering educational programs. * Counseling to keep pets with their families. * Supporting partnerships with local shelters and animal control agencies. * Advocating for animal-friendly public policy. * Creating and maintaining a large network of foster parents providing temporary homes. * Providing sterilization services for feral cats as part of our trap-neuter-return (TNR) initiative. * Building a community who has faith in our vision and supports our life-saving efforts.
