PET ADOPTIONS DURING COVID-19 - PLEASE READ
IMPORTANT CHANGES TO OUR FACILITY:
EFFECTIVE AUGUST 6th, 2021
Due to a staff shortage, we will temporarily require that anyone coming to adopt from our facility make an appointment first. Please note that you must have an approved application BEFORE making an appointment. It does not obligate you to adopt, rather allows you time to meet and interact with our adoptable animals.
Hope for Life Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit Animal Shelter located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. We are a cage-free, no-kill shelter founded in 2002. In 2015 we were named #1 non-profit in Coastal Virginia “Giving Back Awards”.
Hope for Life Rescue serves as a model of care for special-needs animals, abandoned, neglected and abused street animals. We give them medical treatment, shelter, and the love and care they deserve while working towards finding the right forever home. Veterinarian care alone is over $350,000 annually. We have a 95% - 98% Save Rate!
What People Say
I have visited this shelter several times and even adopted my dog from here. The process was very easy and they allowed for a home visit before we made our final decision. The staff is always so friendly and welcoming! They have tons of knowledge on the pets and are able to relay that information to other people who who are meeting with the pets.

HELP US BUILD
Hope City Rescue
In 2018 Hope for Life Rescue saved over 700 animals.
This was accomplished from a small facility. Hope for Life Rescue has outgrown its small facility and we are raising funds to build “Hope City Rescue”, a one of a kind Sanctuary. This much needed Sanctuary will hopefully be located at the Birdneck Rd corridor in Virginia Beach.
