Dogs are available for adventures from Tuesday through Saturday. They can be checked out as early as 9:00 AM and need to be back to the shelter by 4:00 PM.
NACC Pack dogs may not enter private residences while on adventures.
In order to check a dog out, you can stop by the shelter any day between Tuesday and Saturday between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM. The shelter staff have you sign a waiver, review some basic rules, and request a copy of your ID.
The NACC Pack Adventures Program will not run on days where the weather conditions do not allow for safe field trips. These conditions include but are not limited to:
Temperatures above 90 degrees or below 48 degrees
Any time the forecast calls for thunder or lightning storms
When there is an active severe weather alert issued for the Hampton Roads area
Due to a (fantastic!) increased interest in this program, the shelter cannot guarantee there will always be dogs available for field trips. You can call the shelter to check the availability at 757-441-5505.
