We maintain a no-kill animal shelter in Botetourt County. We have been at our location since July of 1995 and have adopted over 2,000 animals to loving homes. We are active with spay/neuter programs. We exist on donations by fundraising and our adoption fees. The LAP is all volunteer except for one employee that receives a small salary. The organization has over 60 active volunteers to maintain the shelter seven days a week for the public to visit.
Come Meet our Pets:
The shelter is open seven days a week. Hours are: 8-11:00 mornings and 3-5:00 afternoons. Visit our website to view all our cats and dogs that are available for adoption.
Our Adoption Process:
Adoption forms are to be filled out. They will be reviewed by the Shelter Committee. After approval the animal is delivered to the home and there is a 60 day probation period where LAP has the right to retrieve the animal if the aggreements are not satisfactory. The adoption fee for sterlized and up to date vaccine dogs is $90.00 - cats - $65.00
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.
