The Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center is at full capacity with animals. Now, they're asking people to help out by fostering and adopting animals. 

For just $20, you can adopt any animal at the shelter all while helping them make space for more animals who need help.

If you already have a pet but they have gone missing, you can reclaim your animal from the shelter for free. 

According to a news release, NACC is in contact with other shelters to help alleviate the shortage of space, but many other shelters are in a similar situation.

That's why they are only charging $20 for adoption, and are asking for people to foster animals. 

If you choose to foster, all food and medical expenses will be covered by NACC.

The shelter is also asking for volunteers to help take care of all the animals at NACC. 

If you're interested in fostering or volunteering, you can email NACC at VolunteerNACC@norfolk.gov.
