The Guilford County Animal Shelter is located just west of I-40 in Greensboro. Take the Wendover Ave. exit. Follow Wendover west to the traffic light next to the yellow Video Now building. Turn left at the light.

Our Adoption Process:

The adoption fee is $95.00 for dogs and $80.00 for cats. All of the animals at the shelter have current shots, a microchip ID and have been spayed or neutered, feline luekemia test or heartworm test in dogs, dewormed (if needed), flea treatment and 1 month of free pet insurance.
Some animals are sponsored so their adoption fee is less than the regular fee. Just look for the Certicate of Love card on their kennel.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
