Looking for a squeaky toy model, but like the real fur friend and not a fake? Meet RUFIO, the one who is so comfortable and confident he will lay his life on the line to show you that he just doesn't give a rip! Have you ever seen a cat give up his belly so readily and easily as Rufio? He had no connection with the photographer at all, yet, just threw himself on the floor and basically said, "Hey, I'm here and if you want to walk, go around me!" What a great cat! He gets alo ng well with other cats, and liked the kids he met when he was at the shelter. He has a little vision loss in in left eye, but nothing to keep him from living a normal life. We'd love to see him find a home where he would fit in just as easily as he does in his foster home. To adopt, we start with an application, and then send it on to the foster family. www.friendsofcampbellcounty.org

About Friends of Campbell County Animal Control

About Our Rescue Group...

Established in 2011 under the umbrella of another local rescue. FOAC filled the vacancy left by the local humane society when they ended their association with Campbell County Animal Control. FOAC became its own entity in 2012 and has grown to 300 volunteers. We work in partnership with Campbell County Animal Control, and as their guests at the shelter. We do not have our own shelter nor overhead expenses, and no paid employees.

Come Meet Our Pets...

FOAC vaccinates and deworms the dogs and cats at the Campbell County Shelter, which is open to the public from 12 to 5 weekdays and 11 to 4 on Saturdays. That address is 322 Dennis Riddle Drive, Rustburg, VA (behind Yellow Branch Elementary School.)

Available by appointment for visits are the dogs and cats noted as being in "foster care." We also visit Petsmart, Petco, and Sams Club locations in Lynchburg, VA, with our adoptable dogs and cats at various times.

Our Adoption Process...

We start with an application so our volunteers and fosters can have an idea of what the adopter is seeking. We ask that other pets in the home be spayed/neutered already if of appropriate age, current with rabies shots, and prefer use of heartworm preventive. We ask for a non-family personal reference as well as a vet reference to contact. We do home visits only if we feel it is vital to the pet's successful placement.

Applications are generally processed within 24 to 48 hours. Foster parents will contact the applicants to advise them of the progress of their application and to set up a meet and greet. Because volunteers work full-time jobs, contact is often made by email.

Fees to adopt range from $20 to $80 for cats, and from $75 to $300 for dogs. A contract requires that the adopter contact FOAC and return the pet to our care at any time if the adoption does not work out.
