The Hanover County Pound Facility offers dogs, cats and other animals for adoption. Only Hanover County residents or adjoining County residents are able to adopt non-sterilized animals. By state law, anyone who adopts a dog or cat must have their new pet sterilized. Any Virginia citizen may adopt animals that have already been sterilized. All forms needed to verify sterilization are available at the Animal Control Facility. Please visit us at www.co.hanover.va.us/anmlctrl/adoptpet.htm to learn more about Hanover County Animal Control.

Our Adoption Process:
Adoption fees for all dogs and cats are currently $50.00 which includes the spay/neuter, shots, heartworm testing and FeLuk testing.
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.
