Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Louisa County, Virginia and bordering counties (Spotsylvania, Hanover, Goochland, Fluvanna, Albemarle, Orange Counties) If the animal is already spayed/neutered it may be adopted to any location.

About Our Shelter:

The Louisa County Animal Shelter operates under guidelines of the Commonwealth of Virginia providing humane sheltering, care, adoption, and redemption of stray and surrendered animals. We strive to eliminate pet overpopulation by encouraging spay/neuter of animals, increase the public awareness by educating our citizens on responsible pet ownership, and to prevent any form of animal cruelty. We are a county pound and we must maintain a few open runs for new intakes at all times. When we do fill up we work very hard not to euthanize for space by calling out to adopters and rescues for help.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are open 10-3 Tuesday-Saturday.
It is possible to arrange an appointment for after hours meetings.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption fee is $20.00, check or money order only, we do not accept cash. You are required to have the animal spayed/neutered and rabies vaccinated within 30 days of adoption. We will fax info to SNAP and they will contact you to set up the appointment.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
