We are very happy to report we are extending this mitzvah ior the Norfolk SPCA into May. You all have been so very generous during April, we decided to continue your generosity into May. The Norfolk SPCA is a non-profit, private organization that relies solely on support from compassionate individuals, local businesses and other organizations. They are in dire need of supplies. Please see the Facebook post from Executive Director Kimberly Sherlaw about the 40+ puppies they just rescued from rural South Carolina. This organization is tireless in their constant efforts to save as many animals as they are able to save, and with your donations, they can continue on this mission. Here are pictures of 4 of the 40+ puppies from South Carolina that Nancy Tucker, our Executive Director, is currently fostering.

Safe and Sound!
Your support enabled one of the Norfolk SPCA's largest emergency lifesaving projects in our 130th year of serving the community and the animals we love. Our newest shelter residents from Marion County, South Carolina arrived around 12:30 today and were met by your generosity, kindness and an outpouring of support for their care. We are humbled by your gifts and without words for the number of supplies that have been ordered and those delivered to the shelter. These resources are critical to our response efforts over the next 3-4weeks. Without you these puppies and three moms were fighting the odds of survival, now they are winning.

We want to share and celebrate the collaborative efforts of the incredibly dedicated care staff and volunteers whose compassion for saving these puppies, abandoned at their rural shelter in Marion County, brought together two animal welfare organizations and our shared communities. To the Norfolk SPCA CARE Team and volunteers our work has just begun and you have gone above and beyond today to settle our tiny friends and weary travelers into their kennels with food, love and comfort.

Medical exams will take place over the next few days and each puppy will go out to a loving foster home for 2-3 weeks, before returning for spay/neuter surgery and availability for adoption. The beautiful moms will also be available for adoption following spay/neuter surgery.

As we bring our family and friends together over this joyous Easter Holiday weekend, we hope you will share these updates and the difference you have made through your support of our Emergency Puppy Rescue. Donations continue to be accepted and are very much needed over the next several weeks, here are links for how you can continue to help. We are so grateful ❤!
