[ARCHIVED] Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center Mobile Unit Named

Winning name chosen from online poll

NORFOLK, VA – And the winner is… Waggin’ Wheels!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the online poll to name the new Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center mobile unit, scheduled to arrive this summer.

NACC became the first shelter in Virginia to receive a $150,000 grant from the Stanton Foundation to purchase the mobile unit. This vehicle will enhance NACC’s ability to participate in community and regional pet adoption events as well as to provide other kinds of community outreach.  

The vehicle is currently in production and will feature onboard kennels and crates for dogs and cats. The exterior features pictures of NACC alumni and their families. 

“We are so excited to add this vehicle to the many ways we interact with our community,” said Bureau Manager Michelle Dosson. “Whether you come to us or we come to you, we want you to find the animal companion that makes your family complete and to provide resources and support for pet owners in Norfolk.”
