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 plus the spay/neuter and rabies fees.
