Description: 
My name is Rock. I am a very sweet boy...I had a family for 6 years who I loved very much. I have seizures and must be on medication to regulate them. My family couldn't afford the medication and couldn't bear to see me suffer through the seizures without it. So, they brought me to the Norfolk SPCA in hopes that I would find a new family. They just know that anyone who meets me will fall in love....That's the easy part. It's finding someone who will love me despite my medical condition that they knew would be difficult. While I have been at the Norfolk SPCA, I have made a lot of great friends. The doctors are weaning me off of one medication and trying another. I haven't had any seizures in over a week! My head is beginning to clear from the fog I was in and I am learning to love life again! My SPCA friends say that I am partial to the ladies, but I like everyone! I just like the ladies because they sing to me :) It's nice to know that I may have a second chance to find an amazing new family. I hope I find them soon. Please come and meet me today at the Norfolk SPCA. ADOPTION PROCESS *PLEASE NOTE - EMAILS MAY NOT BE RETURNED IMMEDIATELY, SO IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT AN ANIMAL AND THEIR STATUS, PLEASE CALL THE SHELTER.* If you are interested in this wonderful animal, you must first complete an adoption application found at www.norfolkspca.com and return it with the following documentation: 1) Proof of residency (Homeowners: a copy of your house deed or most recent mortgage statment, or we can contact the city assessor to confirm ownership if documenation is not available; Renters: a copy of rental lease agreement). Please note, we require this information to ensure our animals go to homes that allow their species, breed and/or size. Home owners are restricted by their city's pet allowance (both in number of animals in the home and sometimes by breed) and renters are restricted by their rental agency/landlord agreements. 2) Copy of adopter(s) photo id's. Adopter must be 21 years of age or 25 years if adopting a pit bull (pure or mixed breed). 3) If you currently have animals, proof of current vaccinations and spay/neuter status. You may also provide us with your veterinarian's contact information if proof is not available. We do our best to keep our list of available animals current, however we can not guarantee an animal you view here will still be available when you visit the shelter. The best way to get more information on the status of an animal is to visit the shelter, located at 916 Ballentine Boulevard in Norfolk or call 622-3319. *Note: WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE RESPONSES FOR EMAIL INQUIRIES.
