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.

Baby Kitty

Thanks to our wonderful donors and Sustaining members, we were able to help Baby Kitty and his mama, a who just relocated here and has not yet found a job. His papa was on deployment when Baby Kitty stopped eating and drinking. ART was able to send them to a vet where she got meds and fluids and is doing much better now. To those thank contribute, thank you for all of your kindness!

44 Community Cats Fixed in April

Spring season means kitten season! ART stepped up in a big way this month and addressed our community’s need to care for our ferals. This past Saturday we spayed/neutered and vaccinated 32 feral cats at No More Chasin’ Tails, bringing our total to 44 community cats fixed in April! All of the cats were trapped, fixed, monitored in recovery and returned home where they were found through our TNR program (trap, neuter, return). We spent over $2000 helping these community cats and we truly thank those who donated to make these surgeries possible. The need in our community is great and we need more funding to continue our efforts. Your donation of any size, small or large, can help us keep so many unsocialized cats out of shelters where their outcome is certain death. Donate here:
