Surry County Animal Control is responsible for the public safety and health of the County as it pertains to the control of unsupervised domestic animals. Animal Control is also responsible for enforcing county and state animal control laws. The officer directly assists citizens with domestic animals and livestock issues while promoting the humane care and treatment of all animals. The County operates a shelter, which cares for and secures impounded stray and unwanted animals.

Our Adoption Process:
Surry County has no adoption fee for animals. You are required to fill out and sign three forms. The first is a sterilization form which requires you have the animal you adopt spayed or neutered within 30 days of adoption if sexually mature as required by VA State Law. The second is a statement acknowledging you have never been charged or convicted of a crime against an animal, cruelty, abandonment or neglect. The third is an adoption release which states Animal Control does not guarentee the health or temperment of the animal you adopt and is no longer legally responsible for the animal after adoption.
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.
