We welcomed a large transfer of puppies last night, and in order to accomodate all of the residents we will be closing the shelter at 3:00 PM on Friday, April 20th. We may be opening late tomorrow so check back in the morning for updates on our hours of operation.
Our education department visits pre-k through fourth grade classrooms each month during the school year with a new animal-themed lesson which teaches respect, responsibility and empathy. Lessons are approximately 30 minutes long and include a critter share time at the end of the session.
October: Pet Care
November: Choose an Appropriate Pet
December: Wild Animals vs. Pets
February: Famous American and their Relationship with Animals
April: Animals Have Feelings, Too
May: Animal Safety/ Bite Prevention
Please note that second through fourth grade classes are given priority in scheduling. PreK classes will be filled if time and volunteer availability allows. There is a fee for any facility that is not a part of the Virginia Beach City Public Schools system.
