  • 1. Wonderful shelter!

    by: firefytr360

    I adopted my cat Max from the Norfolk SPCA 13 years ago. The shelter is clean and organized. Staff are friendly and helpful. This is a good shelter. They have low cost rabies clinics and a host of events.

    Pros

    Clean, nice set up for animals

    Cons

    None

    Very thorough with the adoption process. I did not adopt from here, but I consider this shelter for my next cat or dog.

    Pros

    Very knowledgable

    Cons

    None really

  • 3. Norfolk SPCA experience

    by: justshawn7

    I took my Pom BooBoo here to get neutered. All I had to do was pay $50 dollars drop him off and come back like 6 hours later. The norfolk spca did a fine job and haven't had any problems after the surgery.

    Pros

    Cheap Neuter program

    Cons

    none

  • 4. A Good Experience

    by: Kitsune

    We visited the Norfolk SPCA out of curiosity and socialized with a dog they'd recently gotten in. It's a little inconvenient to have to fill out a whole application before you can see an animal, and it took about 10 minutes before we could find someone to assist us, but the staff were knowledgeable and helpful once we got their attention. The young lady who went into the dog run with us was great.\n\nTheir facilities are clean, and they have good-sized kennels for the larger dogs. Being a Portsmouth volunteer, I'm pretty jealous! Keep up the good work, Norfolk!

    Pros

    Clean; friendly staff

    Cons

    Not enough staff

  • 6. Good experiences for the most part...

    by: cstillwell

    I have adopted two rabbits and a puppy from here in the past. For the most part both experiences were good ones. Had a bit of a problem during the rabbit adoption. I was awaiting a call to finalize approval of the adoption and they forgot to call me back. I contacted them after several days and things went okay after that.

    Pros

    Non-kill facility

    Cons

    unknown

  • 7. They do a pretty good job

    by: MonarchMark

    They are great, the only problem I have had with them is that a couple of staff members were rude but they might have been having a bad day, so I forgive them for that b/c I'm 100% certain that every shelter has their share of this problem. \nThe biggest problem I see with the Norfolk facility is their location (personally, I don't know why) but we get at least 30 calls a day asking us where the Norfolk shelter is located. Maybe they need to put up some signs or something.

    Pros

    Pretty Much everything is great

    Cons

    location

  • 8. They do a GREAT job!

    by: mykell1065

    Kim Sherlaw and her staff have become GREAT friends of PHS. They have helped un ensure that ALL of our animals are spayed or neutered. I just wish we didn't have to fight tunnel traffic to get to them!!

    Pros

    Very affordable

    Cons

    Tunnel Traffic! LOL

  • 9. Helping TNR Programs

    by: feral1

    This is a wonderful shelter to work with. They offer great prices for spay/neuter and vaccination of feral cats and pets too. The staff is great to work with and is always helpful and caring. The animals are all well cared for. Stop by and visit, adopt a pet, or make a donation!

    Pros

    Very Helpful and Caring

    Cons

    None

  • 10. I heart the SPCA

    by: vbspcablog

    I've seen the norfolk facility and the staff and volunteers are always ready to help people and to make them feel welcome. I think they are doing just fine and should keep up the good work.

    Pros

    It's a desperately needed service for the citizens of norfolk

    Cons
