Many pet owners believe that because their furry friends have fur, it automatically keeps them warm. But as soon as the temperatures start to drop and there’s snow and ice, pet owners need to ensure that they are still watching out and keeping them safe during those cold winter months.
Adopting a pet is no easy task and involves a lot of knowledge as well as preparation. The COVID-19 pandemic saw an abrupt increase, and then sadly, a decrease in pets being adopted. Pets need forever homes, and unfortunately due to the pandemic slowing, people who adopted pets from shelters have started returning them.
A special Thanks to the Obici Healthcare Foundation. Funding from their COVID-19 Response Fund ensures our staff and volunteers can continue proper protocols to maintain a safe environment at the office. It will provide our office, fosters, cathouse and adoption centers with COVID-19 related cleaning material and PPE gear. We all thank you.
The health and safety of our visitors and employees are top of mind amid concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19). That’s why we wanted to share with you the steps we are taking to help ensure that we operate safely and effectively. Starting March 16th, the office will be open by appointment only for food, surrenders, and adoptions, please call 757-538-3030 to schedule an appointment or if you have questions regarding services offered by the Suffolk Humane Society.

It doesn't matter what part of the country you live in. We can all be affected by disasters - whether it's a natural disaster, wildfire, terrorist attack, or hazardous spill. Such emergencies may require a brief or permanent evacuation from your home. This guide will help you navigate through how to prepare for your pet in case disaster strikes.
If you must evacuate, always bring your pets with you. If it's not safe for you to be in your home, then it's not safe for your pets. The best thing you can do to ensure the safety and well being of your pets is to be prepared.
