Bella is a Gentle 11-Year-Old Girl Looking For Someone to Love

I went to Norfolk Animal Care Center for #FurryFriday where I got to meet Bella who is up for adoption.

Stephanie and Bella

Bella was brought into Norfolk Animal Care Center as an owner surrender. At 11 years old, this senior girl still has a lot of love to give. She is very calm and gentle and loves a good scratch on her ears and chest.

She does have a chicken allergy and would need to avoid foods that contain chicken. As a senior, she qualifies for their Golden Paws adoption special. Her adoption fee is only $35! Visit her at NACC this weekend!

Can’t adopt but still want to help? Become a foster home for a homeless animal. Foster families provide hundreds of shelter animals the extra attention and time in a home that they need to recover from illness or injury, have a break from the shelter, or in the case of kittens, the time required to reach that 2-month mark and be ready for adoption.
