Licensing: Returning pets to their owners is very important to us. We strive to get every dog licensed in New Kent Co. Licensing your dog will help protect him/her from becoming just another statistic. Annual license fee is only $6.00, if you have not purchased your 2011 County License, please do so right away, it's the law!!! Please help us increase the number of pets returned to their owners; keep the County License fastened on your dog's collar. If you lose your tag a replacement is available from the Treasurer's Office for the cost of $1.
An already sterilized animal may be adopted to anywhere in VA, greatly increasing their chances of finding a home. If you would like to sponsor a pet you see here and help us save its life please mail a donation check to New Kent Sheriff's Office Animal Control, attn: Debbie, PO Box 186, New Kent VA, 23124. Put Sponsor:(name of pet you wish to sponsor) in the memo. If you add a note with your e-mail address, we'll e-mail you pet updates. Every bit helps. $10 will buy a rabies shot for the adoption stand. $35-60 will neuter or spay an animal. $15-20 will get them a distemper combo vacc or HW test.
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.
