Animal Resources of Tidewater is more than just an organization that finds homes for dogs and cats. Since 1999, our humble organization made up of a small handful of determined volunteers has grown leaps and bounds. With grants and donations, we have proudly established several programs designed to improve the lives of companion animals in Hampton Roads: SpayHR, Community Medical Assistance, Legislative Policy Advocacy and the Pit Bull Awareness Coalition.

Cassie was found with her sister abandoned in Chesapeake back in 2005. She was adopted from ART by a fabulous home and has been loved ever since. We thought we would share her recent photo. We are so happy for her!


Five month Sampson injured his spine while playing which caused swelling and prevented his brain from getting message to move back legs. The poor thing could not control his legs. His owners are very young and could not afford the cost of treatment. ART was able to help with the bills thanks to our amazing donors and Sustaining Members. Thank you!


We neutered Rufus through our low cost SpayHR clinic. His mama says: “I am thankful for you guys and the low cost clinic. Without your help I wouldn’t have been able to get my precious boy neutered. Thank you so much for being here!”¬†Thank you to all who donate and to our Sustaining Members who make our clinics possible.
