Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve primarily Mecklenburg County, VA, but routinely take in animals from other surrounding counties in Southern Virginia and Northern North Carolina. We network with other rescue groups to try and find the ideal adopting families for our animals.

About Our Shelter:

We are a non-profit private animal shelter, founded in 2002. We operate solely on donations with a mostly volunteer staff. We typically take in about 800-1,000 animals per year and pay vet bills, cleaning supplies, building rent, etc. solely on donations. We are a no-kill shelter. Most of our animals reside at our shelter but some are also in foster care. We are in a rural area with a huge pet overpopulation problem due to people not spaying or neutering animals, lost, abandoned and/or unaltered hunting dogs, abandoned, unaltered cats and feral cat colonies. We also have many people who relinquish pets because of hard economic times. We work closely with Mecklenburg County Animal Control to save as many animals as possible.

We are in the process of building a new shelter which will have many improvements over our current residence. We have an anonymous donor who has agreed to match all donations toward the building fund up to $100,000 before December 31, 2014.

Our Adoption Process:

We ask for a $75.00 donation for an adult dog, $100 for a puppy, and $10 to $35 donation for a cat, depending on age/shots given. If sexually mature, the animal will be altered and have it's rabies shot and other typical vaccinations appropriate for its age before the adoption occurs. Our adoption contract states that any sexually immature puppy or kitten adopted must by spayed or neutered by law within 30 days of becoming 6 months old, failure to do so is punishable by law. Cats are tested for feline leukemia and FIV, and dogs are tested for heartworms and intestinal worms. Animals are thoroughly treated for any positive findings or health conditions before they are eligible for adoption.

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.
