"Adopt a pet who will rule your heart."

Royal Pet Rescue in Virginia Beach

The mission and vision for Royal Pet Rescue is to save dogs of all sizes and all breeds by placing them into loving, forever homes. We are an all-volunteer, foster home based, our organization is based in Virginia Beach, VA. We do not have a physical shelter.  Instead, we operate primarily through our foster homes, online databases and through word of mouth.


The majority of our animals come from animal that are rescued, surrendered, and abandoned in the Tidewater area.  

We are committed to providing the dogs that come into Royal Pet Rescue with the best possible care while they wait for their forever homes by acclimating them to life without fear and providing the appropriate veterinary care needed.

We also serve our community and adopters by educating and encouraging responsible pet ownership with an emphasis on the need for spaying and neutering.


We never euthanized animals due to space or time constraints, but we may elect to euthanize in the event of a severe, untreatable/debilitating illness or extremely dangerous behavioral concerns.  Because we do not kill to make space, however, we cannot take in every animal that needs help.


Because our foster homes are the backbone of Royal Pet Rescue and to help our organization run smoothly, it is our goal to provide the best experience possible. We encourage each foster home to be as involved as they are comfortable with and allow them the freedom to foster based on their needs, restrictions, or desires. 


We are associated with BB’s Imperial Shih Tzus & BB’s Royal Doggy Boutique.  We believe not ever person is cut out to rescue.  It takes a truly passionate, loving heart for a rescued animal. (with great rewards in return), however this does not mean that they can’t make wonderful parents.  BB’s Imperial Shih Tzus & BB’s Royal Doggy Boutique donates their profits to fund this rescue.  We are not a 501 organization (still in the works), so we depend on all funding to be donated from our own pockets.
