Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center
Winner, 2015

Friends of NorfolkFriends of Norfolk Animal Care Center was awarded $10,000 to help promote adoptions in the shelter. Nala was just one of the lucky pets to find a forever home and we are happy to share her story. “Animal shelters can be very dangerous places, and our volunteers know firsthand that there are many perils lurking around every corner. The danger, of course, is falling in love with any one of our many residents, just as Jennie fell hard for Nala. Jennie saw Nala, an 8-year-old blind kitty, and her story on our Facebook page, and began researching how best to accommodate a blind pet. She knew from the photo that Nala was meant to spend the rest of her years at Jennie’s side. Jennie came to her weekly volunteer shift with a cat carrier in-hand, and left with it about 8lbs. heavier and purring up a storm.”
