Hope for Life Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit, animal rescue located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Our focus is on rescuing abandoned, abused, and neglected animals. We focus on saving those that are at high risk of euthanasia at other shelters, and do not typically take in owner surrendered pets.

The number of animals we've rescued has continued to grow over the past few years, and we now average an intake of about 1,200 animals a year! We now spend about $350,000 on veterinary bills annually, as we strive to do all we can to bring the animals we rescue to the best health possible.
 We are a no-kill animal rescue and have a 98% save rate!

Hope City 

Our adoption facility is known as Hope Center, and is a 1600 square foot space that we currently rent.


As the number of animals we rescue every year exceeds1,000, we are definitely outgrowing our current space! We would love to have enough money to eventually buy the building we are in so that we can make our dream of Hope City, a reality!

Please consider donating to help us achieve our goal!
