Tiki awaits her new loving home with a new chance of happiness.

“Special” Animals Up For Adoption At The Norfolk SPCA

Recently, we received a call asking us if we could intake a nine-year-old cat named Tiki because her human mom had passed away.

The mom's family was unable to keep the cat due to allergies. Tiki was living alone temporarily in the Virginia Beach apartment of her deceased mom for a few weeks while survivors cared for her and tried to figure out what to do with this sweet feline.  The cat received daily attention but a new home was needed fast.

The Norfolk SPCA was, happily, able to help. Tiki has deformed feet but is lucky because she is receiving top- notch care from our veterinary medical and shelter teams. Soon, she will be available for adoption.

We also saved Misty's life. Misty is 13 years old and was surrendered because her owners couldn't afford medical care.

Her nails were curled under the pads of her feet. Her fur was matted and she was in dire need of a bath.

You can see a growth on her nose in the photo. At this time, we are determining if this elderly dog with a heart murmur can be sedated to remove and diagnose the growth.

But now that she has found comfort at the Norfolk SPCA, Misty is enjoying some love and companionship that she has been longing for - likely for several years.

Ultimately, she will need a loving and quiet home to spend the rest of her days. Despite her advanced age, she is a strong and determined little lady. She enjoys exploring on walks and will even carry her own leash if her human will not walk fast enough.

We hope to help find lots more forever homes for pets in dire straits like Tiki and Misty.

-- Rob Blizard, Executive Director, Norfolk SPCA
