VIRGINIA BEACH, VA - The Virginia Beach SPCA (VBSPCA) is happy to announce that the quarantine of several dogs due to possible exposure to the Parvo virus will be lifted on Saturday, September 5th. "We are confident that the dogs that were in quarantine are healthy and happy and ready to find their forever homes," stated Barbara Gipson, the VBSPCA shelter manager.
In addition, most of the dogs that were transferred to the VBSPCA from a North Carolina puppy mill seizure will also be placed up for adoption on Saturday, September 5th during normal business hours of 10am until 4pm. However, some of the puppies are too small to be placed up for adoption and will remain in foster care until they are old enough to be released. Sixteen animals will be released for adoption and will be available for viewing on the available animals page of the website. These include three maltese puppies, two adult maltese, five boxer puppies, one Chinese crested powder puff, three golden retriever puppies, one young adult german shepherd and one adult chihuahua.
Adopters will go through the same adoption process as those adopting other animals in the shelter, but there may be additional requirements. People interested in adopting should visit www.vbspca.com to learn what documentation is necessary to bring with them in order to complete an application. We will only accept three applications on each animal, then we will review those and if there is not a good match, we will take additional applications at a later time. It is the policy of the Virginia Beach SPCA that all animals adopted from the Virginia Beach SPCA are sterilized, there are no exceptions.
