Spotsylvania County Animal Shelter only adopts to Spotsylvania County Residents if the animal is under 16 weeks of age. If you live in any other county or another state, the animal must be altered before leaving Spotsylvania Animal Shelter.


All adoptions are based on a first-come first-serve baisis on the day the animal is available. You must be at least 18 years of age and provide a current ID. Also, if you have other pets or children, we suggest that you bring them in to visit before adoption. Most of our animals are strays and we can only guess by observing the behavior of the animal in the kennel/cage and interaction by the shelter staff, whether they are good with other animals or children.

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.
