Now you can!
On the second Sunday of each month, at 5pm, Old Donation Episcopal Church (4449 N Witchduck Rd, Virginia Beach) holds a "pet friendly" service called Paws, Prayers and Praise (all denominations welcome).
From the Old Donation Episcopal Church website (http://www.olddonation.org/)...
"People bring their pets with them to this service, which is generally over in 40 minutes, because even exceptional pets have a limited attention span. The praise music of this service is usually accompanied by a guitarist, and some dogs sing along. The only reading is the Gospel, and the sermon is typically three minutes long. People remain in their pews while communion is brought out to them in order to minimize mayhem, and no, we don't commune the pets, just the people."
