Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter

The Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter (PRAS) is a unique collaborative supported by four separate communities: Newport News, Hampton, Poquoson, and York County, Virginia. This new facility physically embodies each area’s dedication to its citizens and to homeless animals. As a result, the shelter will provide necessary resources and services to the citizens of each jurisdiction in terms of education, adoption, outreach, and animal care. These services are represented by the three goals of the shelter’s mission: Rehome, Reunite, and Reeducate.
