About Us

XOXO Pet Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3  animal rescue group serving the greater Hampton Roads area: Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton, Poquoson, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake and Suffolk.  It is staffed by volunteers–a growing network of animal lovers who work tirelessly to rescue neglected and abandoned animals and place them in permanent, loving homes.

What We DoXOXO Pet Rescue is a foster-based rescue group.  Rescue volunteers go to local high-kill animal shelters and remove the more neglected (but still adoptable and lovable) dogs and puppies and then place them in temporary foster homes.  While being fostered, these animals receive lots of love, attention, and necessary veterinary care.  The foster families will also begin housebreaking the dogs if the dogs aren’t already trained.

XOXO Pet Rescue then finds permanent homes for these dogs as soon as they are ready to leave their foster homes.  XOXO Pet Rescue holds regular adoption events throughout Hampton Roads where prospective adoptive families can come out and meet the available dogs.  Or, if someone sees a dog online that they are interested in adopting, XOXO Pet Rescue can coordinate a meeting with the dog’s foster family. Because XOXO Pet Rescue has multiple foster locations throughout Hampton Roads, these one-on-one meetings are done by appointment only.

Our Goals

  1. Save as many dogs and puppies as possible from neglect, abuse and euthanasia.
  2. Find permanent, loving homes for those animals.
  3. Until permanent homes are found, provide those animals with safe, loving foster homes where they can receive proper care and attention.
